  • I would always use Napisan. It was gentle on clothes and still removed stains and smells.

  • I always soaked baby items in Napisan and then washed. Removes stains and smells

  • I have a bucket of water with a scoop of nappisan. I soak the clothes and bibs in there untill I wash them. Haven’t had any issues with stains or milk smell. Prior to this I was washing the items a few times

  • The white vinegar kills smells, germs and bacteria.
    You don’t need to use hot water. In some cases the heat does nothing for the smell. It just damages the material

  • Hi Mehvi – I always use White Vinegar to get rid of any stinky smells from human urine when a child wets the bed to my husband’s smelly socks.

  • I always made sure I frequently changed them and after rinsing with hot water put them in a bucket with nappisan before they went in the wash

  • Wash with white vinegar & omo mix.

  • I used the aldi brand napi sand and a dash of tea tree oil

  • I found a good soak in Napisan cleaned up most stains and removed bad smells
