I had never heard of Caldrea until I went and helped a friend out for a week. I must say I was pretty impressed with the overall quality of Caldrea. The price is on the higher side, but for the quality and how well it works it is not over the top. I am not sure about other scents in the Caldrea products, but the Sweet Pea fragrance for the baby line is nice.
Caldrea Sweet Pea Stain Remover comes in a 16 oz. clear plastic squirt bottle. Caldrea products are not tested on animals and are biodegradable. The stain remover states that it works against all types of organic stains. The Caldrea Stain Remover goes for $6.50-$8 depending on where it is purchased.

I used this on formula and baby accidents caused by diaper leakage. I found if it was a fresh formula stain I had an easier time getting it out with the stain remover than if it was an older stain. There were a few items of Maddie's I had to retreat to get the stains completely out. The diaper messes came out with one treatment though. I did use this stain remover on a few of my clothes that I wore as well. I had managed to get grape juice and tomato juice on me and Caldrea Sweet Pea stain remover got both stains out in just one treatment.
Though I still prefer my shout with brush for getting out stains of all types. This Caldrea Sweet Pea is something I would be willing to have around for baby clothes if I had a baby. You do not use much of the stain remover so it would last for quite a while for the price. I also found that it did not bleach out the fabric even if it dried on the clothes. This stain remover is not perfect, but I did not have to use much and I never had to use this more than twice on even a formula drenched dress that had set for a couple of days at least. Formula is one of the hardest stains to get out of baby clothes and I managed to get out all of the formula with this stain remover.
To clean underarm stains that have been around a while, crush up a number of digestive enzyme tablets () and add water a teaspoon at a time, just until you form a paste. (If the piece of clothing in question is completely white, you could mix the enzymes with hydrogen peroxide as an alternative.) Rub the paste all over the stain and let it sit for 2-4 hours (longer as desired), then launder as usual. For even more potent enzyme action, use a commercial enzymatic stain remover, such as the aforementioned Caldrea stain remover – those enzymes will go right to work. I've cleaned up everything from dingy blouses to stains on my husband's Sunday shirts from when our kids were toddlers – I've been very pleased to say the least!
