I've had that happen to nappies too, but have never given my kids calpol. NO idea whether they'd had paracetamol (the stuff we use is pink?) at around the time when it happened, but it really was an absolute bugger to get out - I tried everything I could think of, including bleach :oops:. It did eventually fade but I never got it 100% out. :(

Tell me about it, I've given up...

WSS... It fades but doesn't vanish sadly and sunlight doesn't budge it :?
Can't be just calpol as we don't use the stuff - we use a colourless own-brand...
Although various reflux meds despite being colourless can cause staining I have heard... :roll:

I put it down to her noshing on brocolli and coming thru in her wee as it wasn't pooey nappies for us but wet ones...

If its not calpol, the only thing that I've noticed that gives us really bad stains is chocolate. Its how I know if dh has taken ds out and they've had choccy biccys at his nans. :giggle:

Hahahaha! Dobbed in by the nappies! :giggle:

No chocolate for Grace here though I do eat the dairy-free stuff myself...

We're dairy and soya free but not eggs...
