I'd like someone to explain, scientifically, what makes some baby clothes' stains so hard to remove, and what the right way to treat the stains is, chemistry-wise. A lot of internet sites have solutions (pardon the pun) that are 'my experience' and anecdotal, which is better than nothing, but not always transferable (and sometimes may damage clothes).
So yeah... how do you get out the hard to remove orange stains (e.g. from iron, or carrot/sweet potato soup)? How about other things? Why? I'd love someone to make this the definitive guide to removing stains from baby clothes, if you can :D. (Feel free to expand beyond my stated question above so there's just a one-stop reference question here.)
