Please help!

One person told me I should use vinegar in my cold presoak and another told me that vinegar sets in stains. Who is right? Does anyone have experiance with this?

Theoretically it should help to set stains, considering it's used in dyeing fabric for that purpose. However, I use vinegar almost every time I wash, and the only diaper that I have that has a stain is from blueberries (which are notorious for staining diapers), and it gets lighter each time. Honestly, if I stuck it outside, I think it would go away. I guess it might depend, but no it hasn't been my experience. And, actually if you're using a dryer to dry your diapers, that would contribute to stain setting as well. HTH
