How silicone bibs get stained
Silicone rubber is considered stain-resistant, but strong colored foods such as tomato and carrot sauces can cause staining if left soiled on the bib for a prolonged period. A stain can also occur if the bib is washed in the sink or dishwasher alongside dishes that have a strong colored food on them.
How to prevent staining of silicone bibs
To prevent staining, wash the bib immediately after wear if soiled. Also, put the bibs at the front of the queue if you’re washing by hand, and on the top rack if you’re using a dishwasher.
How to remove stains from silicone bibs
If the bib did get stained and washing didn’t help, use a solution made of 1 part 3% hydrogen peroxide (household peroxide sold in most drugstores) and 1 part water, to remove the stain. Pour the solution in plastic or glass container, immerse the stained part of the bib and let the bib soak overnight. Be aware that expired hydrogen peroxide is ineffective. Keep the hydrogen peroxide out of reach of children! After the stains are removed, wash the bib thoroughly in warm soapy water, rinse and air dry.
