I have a question about buying some used cloth diapers. 2 of them are pretty stained up. However, she said she had never laid them out to sun dry. I was wondering if I got them and sun dried them if it would help or not. I have yet to wash any of my cloth diapers. I didnt know if the stain was probably already set in to much. Thanks!
For some extra power you can spray on some lemon juice/water mix after hanging....breastfed baby poo will come right out in an hour with regular sun, but darker staining sometimes needs some coaxing. :sun
as the others have said, it should come out. That said, I have some prefolds that are stained, but it's solid food poo stains, I've sunned them a few times and they have lightened up but are still visible.
I live in SUNNY AZ, and sunned my diapers all last summer while my son was 6 to 9 months old - NO STAINS ALL SUMMER. But when the fall came (less intense sun) and he got older and started eating more solids (still mostly BF) I do have SOME stains that the sun didn't touch; mostly on my PFs. I will try to re-sun them this summer to see if they come out, but I'm not sure if they will.
