Mum-Ma Ain-ree ***Update with new pics***

Jax says, Mum-ma Ain-Ree, Vewy vewy Ain-Ree. Be hoppy Mum-ma.

I was sitting on the deck and was letting him play in the yard. He was in mmy total view and I still let him lay out there for about 3 minutes before it occured to me what the hell was going on. This is a wet spot from our freaking drainfield. Ok, so the outfit might be ruined, but more importantly, can't he possibly get sick from this????

UPDATE: After soaking in Oxy-Clean.....

Boys will be boys!! Wyatt could find an spot 1 x 1 on an acre and get muddy.

Unless he was drinking the muddy water I dont think he will get sick from it.

Hey you know what I just thought of? Do you have a puraflo type system instead of traditional septic? I remember when we were going to build on land we own and were required to get that type system...the salesman told us that the water that ended up in the drain field was technically clean enough to drink...not that you'd want to, but that's how much the system cleans the contents.

OMG the first thing I noticed is it was his Boden LOL, I agree though, if anyone can get that out it's you, get some oxy clean LOL.

I"m sure he's fine, it doesn't look like he was eating the mud.

He gets changed into Geranimals when dad gets home from work, because he usually stays clean when I'm in charge.

No, we don't have that system. We have another problem with a differnt drain line than the one that was fixed 2 summers ago. I had no clue we had this problem. But apparently DH and Jax knew, because DH was flaming mad that Jax got into it. He said he's told him 1,000 times to stay away from the stinky water because it will make you very sick. I was like, well thanks for filling me in on the issue, buttwheat. He called the septic guy tonight. LOL

Yes thankfully he didn't get it in his mouth.

And I do have to report that he got sprayed off with the hose, stripped down outside and thrown in the bath and I busted out the anti-bac soap for this job. The clothes got a good double oxy soak, are in the washer now and it appears to be no evidence of the mishap. We'll see what it looks like when they are dry.

???? I don't know Ruth, what's your treating system? I pretty much haven't met a stain that I couldn't get out, as long as it's done immediately.

Here's my steps.

  • Rinse the area with the sprayer at the kitchen sink and remove the majority of it.
  • In a plastic dishpan, 1/3 scoop oxyclean and about 1" of very hot water, swish until dissolved.
  • Add a Shout color catcher sheet (if mixing colors, because I don't care what Oci-clean says, I've had lighter clothes pick up dye from darker clothes in a soak)
  • Add clothes
  • Fill with just enough HOT water to cover everything and soak until the cows come home and the stain is gone.
  • Launder as usual, but do it right away. The thing with using oxi-clean either the spot treat that comes in a spray bottle or the original powder stuff in the tub, is that if it is allowed to dry on the fabric it will 'bleach' it up.

BTW, a drainfield is the icky water that runs off the septic tank. :puke2:

About the bolded, good to know!!!!!! I'm a recent convert to Oxy from Spraynwash... and here's my 'procedure': ROFL Both boys had blowouts yesterday (most of the way up the back, ick) within about 20 minutes of each other, so I took the soiled clothes downstairs, started to just spray them (I have the spray bottle, never heard of the powder stuff in the tub before), realized there was a lot of poop on them that i didn't want to get mixed in with all the other clothes in the wash, so then decided to rinse them in cold water, then sprayed and washed as usual. but did it all in a big hurry because that's how we roll around here these days, so i wasn't so careful about rinsing all the poop off - figured the washer would get it... oddly, everything came out just fine in brian's outfit, but micah's came out still stained... so i didn't put it in the dryer but just set it off to the side to deal with later. maybe i should try some of what you do. Wink

I've never come across a septic system, so that explains the ignorance about drainfields. lol YUCK! I would have thrown those clothes away. well, maybe if i knew what they cost i might not. lol glad you got it out, it's such a cute outfit! Biggrin

Ok, I think I can handle that task. But, that shirt is white, you can use a bleach pen on just the spots, and rinse it in a way that it doesn't run onto the applique. Just be careful.
