We want your Bourgeois Baby bibs to look their best, so here is some suggestions on how to keep them as fresh and stain free as possible.
Immediately after a messy meal, clean/wipe bib of any solid food. Often gently wiping larger pieces then giving the bib a rinse in warm water will help. Wash bib as soon as possible after a meal to keep any stains from setting.
Should there be any lingering stains or food we have found the following a very effective way to removing stains.
You will need:
- Small bucket or bowl to hold bib(s) for soaking
- Oxygen based powder cleaner
- Bristled brush (a toothbrush will do)
Place the bibs in the bucket of hot water (water should be hot enough to be a comfortable bath or shower). Add about 1/4 cup of oxygen cleaner to the water and given it a swirl. Let soak for at least 1 hour. Soak up to 6 hours for tough stains like blueberry or carrots.
After the soak, scrub any stained areas with the toothbrush. Throw the bibs soaking wet into your washing machine. If you have a HE (high efficiency) washing machine it is important to not wring out the bibs before you place them in the wash. That's it!
