How to wash and sanitize kids’ clothes


Get rid of the excess

First you need to remove excess dirt. A simple scraping or quick rinse may help you in your purpose. Once this step is done, let's see how to treat the most frequent stains.


Chocolate is every child's delight, these stains are among the most frequent, let's see how to treat them. First pre-treat or prewash the garment in lukewarm water with an enzyme-based product or use a pre-wash stain remover. You can then proceed by washing normally in the washing machine. If the stain persists, you can consider washing the garment again with a bleach-safe detergent for the fabric.


All children love juices, but more often than not they end up spilling it down their clothes. Soak the garment in cold water for 30 minutes. Lightly apply white vinegar to the remaining stain and let it sit for another 30 minutes. Wash normally in the washing machine with bleach-safe detergent for the fabric.


Let children express their creativity by painting. Although you can be sure, once the work is finished more  will be on their clothes than  on the canvas! But let's see how to remove paint stains: if the paint is still wet, remove as much as possible with a paper towel and rinse the fabric in hot water before washing it in the washing machine. If the stain is already dry, it is best to turn to a dry cleaner!


Kids love to play outdoors and what's better than a nice green lawn to jump, run, roll on? Grass stains are among the most difficult to clean, as chlorophyll lurks in the fibers, so the sooner you treat the stain, the better the effect will be. First treat the stain with a prewash spray. Then wash in the washing machine with an enzymatic detergent and the hottest water that is safe for the fabric.

Create a uniform

Finally, you could consider creating a "uniform" for your child. Old comfortable clothing that may be slightly too small or torn, are perfect for your child to wear when they are  engaging in messy activities that will inevitably end up ruining their  best outfits.
