Scrape off whatever you can
Fresh protein stains can often be removed by just soaking and agitating in cold water before washing. If hot water is used first, it can cook the protein, causing coagulation between the fibres in the yarns of the fabric, making the stain more difficult to remove.
Soak in cold water using a detergent or enzyme pre-soak product for about 30 minutes. Soak old stains for at least several hours.
Launder in warm (Not hot) water, rinse, and inspect. If stain remains, soak an additional 30 minutes, then rewash. (Never put a stained fabric in a dryer, the heat from the dryer can set the stain.)
If colour stain remains, launder using chlorine bleach if safe for the fabric, or with Oxygen bleach. However, if bleach is used, rewash to be sure all bleach has been removed because baby's skin is sensitive.
According to the Old wives tale, adding one cup of white vinegar to each laundry load during the rinse cycle breaks down uric acid and soapy residue, leaving baby clothes and diapers soft and fresh. But, be sure you use WHITE vinegar.
