Getting Rid of Spit Up Smells from Clothing

Milk residue scent on clothing is hard to get off. Since Little Patch’s been spitting up a lot, many of his clothing and especially bibs have an annoying smell on it even after multiple washings. I managed to find a solution to get the smell out and the clothing smelling clean as spring.

  1. Do a rinse in the washer with a cup of white vinegar.
  2. Do a regular wash and rinse cycle. During the wash cycle, use your regular laundry detergent and add a few drops of dish detergent (I used Palmolive’s Green Apple but the clothes don’t end up smelling like dish detergent so I don’t think it matters what you use).
  3. Do a rinse cycle with water only.

This actually takes a long time and uses a lot of water so I tried doing step 1 or step 2 only to see if I can eliminate a step but the result remained smelly. I think it’s easier to just buy new bibs for him. As for clothing, I try to do this once in awhile when I have a full load of clothes with the smell.
