Hi Karen i dont have an answer for stains but wanted to welcome you to the site, i,ve been an ostomate for 30 some years.
Rub it down with a bar of soap. Works for me.
New stains I use shower head and rinse with just cold water then just spray it with stain remover and put in washing machines everythings always comes out spotless
Hi welcome to the site. Lot's of useful information given already try and put them on the hot wash after soaking in cold water and salt. XX
¬† X's post above reminded me about something.¬† If you use the commercial stain removers.......Spray N Wash, OxiClean or Shout......what I do is spray the stain and let it sit for a few minutes before putting it in the machine.¬† Then I let the machine fill with water (warm or hot) and then stop it when the water stops flowing into it (before the agitation starts) to let is sit for 10 minutes or so in the water.¬† Then I just resume the wash cycle.¬† Seems the sitting time helps the stains dissolve and the removers do their thing.¬† Time is your friend in this instance.¬†¬†
Glad you found this site. Lots of great help for any situation!¬†
i sometimes have the job of getting some grease out of my Husband's pants. I use Spray and wash and use a brush to get it I to the fibers. Using some sort of degreaser in the same manner also has helped. It takes me several times but I usually succeed. The n√©e Dawn spray will be the next thing I try! It works wonders on baked on grease for the dishes. Will have to see what it does on clothes!¬†
The sun!¬† If you have access to a clothes-line direct sunlight can remove all kinds of stains.¬† Soak in a cold wash and then wash with warm/hot water (with whatever detergent you usually use) before hanging them out.
If all else fails next time buy bed linen in darker colours/patterns, stains are not as noticeable and as long as their clean no problems!

I'm no expert in washing things, but I first try the normal stuff....Spray N Wash or Shout or OxiClean. The other more 'professional' method is mix baking soda with water to form a thick paste. Make sure the stain area is damp......wet it then ring it out as best you can. Then put the baking soda and water paste on the stained area and just let it dry completely. Once it's completely dry brush the powder off the stained area........and if all goes well the baking soda and water mix should have lifted the stain from the fabric and been brushed away. This all takes some time, which is why I try the spray cleaners first.......cuz I'm lazy. regards, bob ¬†|

Hello karen. Welcome to this site - where you have already had some good advice regarding the staining problem. I don't have much experience in cleaning this sort of thing as, when and if I have staining, it is often far too bad to worry about washing - so my solution is to chuck it all out and start again. Fortunately for me, it doesn't happen very often. Also. I am a firm believer in 'prevention' rather than cure.(wherever possible) So, for the most part I use incontinence pads and other devices to try to avoid the staining problem. Sorry if my reply is not much help in answering your original question but it might be useful to get several different perspectives on these issues. Best wishes Bill
I am with the incontinence¬†pads, however for me I bought waterproof crib protectors, it saves my sheets and stays in place. Welcome to the site, always room for another buddy.
