I think, we should separate clothes as per their brightness , white or light colour clothes supposed to get many stains, so avoid feeding baby while baby are wore with light colour clothes, Dark colour clothes still would not make great impact on its shade.

Sundrying baby clothes is very good. Drying the clothes of the baby in the sun kills all the germs and is the best natural disinfectant.

I wash baby clothes separately first in lukewarm water and then in a mild detergent. As a last rinse, an antiseptic solution is a must.
