How do you stain remove?

Lately I'm cleaning lots of poop and spit up stains outta baby girls clothes :)  So much fun.  And as I'm doing it I wonder "Am I using the best technique?" 
Here's what I do...
Spray the spot with this:
I then rub Tide with bleach (Powder) detergent over the top of the Oxi Clean and let it sit for 10 minutes, then wash. 

It works good most of the time, but sometimes the stain isn't completely gone. 
SO... whats your trick? What works for you? Tell me your stain removing secrets!

I line dry a ton. I used to line dry and check stains again, then redo. You can always try pre-soaking with the oxi powder for a bit.

I actually do the same thing as well, its harder to get out the stain in you dry it, so i double check it before i put it in the dryer, most if the time i line dry i love the oxi powder, i will rub it in and then let it soak for an hour and the stain comes right out
hope your doing well.

I use Clorox 2 on those stains. Follow directions on the back (let it sit like 10 minutes then wash. Don't leave on overnight though--I've done that, that's bad!)

I have 2 kids and a new baby as well, so tons of stains! I use original gain liquid detergent in a spray bottle mixed with a bit of water and spray on the stains. I get EVERY stain out and it smells great after too!

If they are really bad stains, sometimes I spray with them with shout too after the gain has soaked/rubbed in- I just hate the way shout smells so I don't use it as much.
Hope that helps!

Baby oxiclean is A.MAZ.ING. I have a 5 month old daughter who literally poops out her diaper everyday...and stained lots of things with that light yellow residue that never seemed to disappear. that is until I discovered baby oxiclean!!! If its a fresh stain you just add it to wash...but if it's a set in stain you add some to warm water in the sink and let it soak for a few hours to a day. Works like a charm and gets everything out. Sorry this post was so long!

Well a trick I learned from my Aunt Becky is to use Murphy's Oil soap-- It's a vegetable soap ( so it's natural) It has gotten out washed/dried blood-- So baby poop is no prob :)You put it in a plastic container with no lid on it and of the way so it doesn't get spilled and it will after a week or so turn into a gel consistantcy and rub the stain on it, let it sit overnight and "Wa-la" stain is gone :) ( you don't have to wait for the gel to form , in it's original form it works too!!
