I have not been successful at getting stains out of our unbleached prefolds.
What am I doing wrong?
I wash a cold cycle with no soap, then a hot on largest setting with natural liquid soap (from TJ's).
I have tried nonchlorine bleach, even up to a half cup, and it doesn't seem to do anything.
They are a little stinky and totally yellow still. (EBF 4 mo)
Any tips? Would chlorine bleach hurt the diapers or baby bum? Am I not using enough nonchlorine bleach?
I also just tried Life Tree all purpose soap on someones' say so. How do you pretreat the stain. Soak? Rub it in? Leave it for a while or throw it in the wash right away?
