My dipes are beginning to aquire stains. The girls have been using them for 5 weeks and no stains. Then this week, nothing seems to be coming out. What do I do? There is of course no sun this week - it's rainy. Does lemon juice work w/out sun? I've been doing a plain prewash, then washing w/ a small amount of detergent, plus baking soda, vinegar and DA.(FL washer by the way) I haven't changed anything in the way I wash recently. What can I do?

Please, please help me!

I also find that sun works well after the fact. I can sun out a diaper that hasn't seen the sun all winter and it usually works fine.
I have also had success with BacOut before...just squirt it on there and soak it.

The stains still come out on cloudy days as someone mentioned. It's the UV rays that get the stains.

Yes, I find that the diapers somehow "sun" better when they are wet. I don't know why, but it's just what I've found from experience.
