I have 2 white crib sheets that have nasty blow-out stains on them from when my daughter was a baby. I have tried shout, oxiclean, bleach and white brite on them to get the stains out. They won't come out! (toxic poo I suppose)

So I have the brilliant idea of dying them! Will it work or will I still see the stains? I really can't stand looking at the stains anymore. Please help me. Smiley

Not about dying, but my MIL swears by "VIVID" on stains....

I dyed some spotted pillowcases (spotted with stains, that is), and the stained spots seemed to show up even darker after dyeing (dyed with Rit dark brown).  I would try it, though, maybe not all stains show up after dyeing.

Thank you! I think I'll try it when I am not quite so busy with all my other projects. I suppose if it doesn't work then I will sew something over it?

Dyes are transparent so they won't cover the stain.  If the stains aren't too dark, a uneven dye job like low water immersion dye might make them less obvious.

Well, they are yellow stains.... I think I will dye them and make some fuzzy appliqus to cover the icky spots. I can't make them worse! lol
