How to remove baby formula stains

Babies can be little stain generators at feeding time, especially with baby formula, which can leave streaky stains behind. Fortunately, this protein-based stain is easy to remove with the right detergent. Ariel contains enzymes and organic compounds, like propylene glycol, acting as a solvent to make the perfect baby formula stain remover. Just be careful to avoid using hot water when rinsing the stain out before the wash, as this will set it into the fabric’s fibres. Follow these Ariel stain solution tips and get outstanding results from the first wash when it comes to baby formula stain removal.
