I know that it is permitted to do laundry for children who soil their clothing easily. However, my clothing often becomes soiled from my children as well and I have very few shabbos outfits (not enough for 2 three day yom tov days). Would it be permitted to wash my clothing? Is it preferable to just wash the soiled part (as opposed to the entire article of clothing)?
You are allowed to clean off the stains, but not the whole garment.
