I just have 2 questions about sunning diapers:<br><br>
1- Will the sun take out "food poo" stains, like from baby food poo? Z likes beets... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/bigeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="bigeyes"><br><br>
2- Does the fluff have to be in direct sunlight, or will just being outside work too? I don't want to be chasing the sun around our yard all day... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
TIA <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

Beets (and blueberries) will be tough ones so yeah, a nice bright clear sunny day would be a good one to set them out. The rays of the sun are what works like bleach so you need them in somewhat of direct sunlight. They'll sun out better if the dipes are wet, and you can spritz a little lemon juice on them too (that helps), if needed. Oh-you should be able to notice them getting lighter after about one hour or so (depending on the brightness of sun that day, extent of staining, etc), so you won't have to chase the sun around all afternoon or anything. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

The previous poster has pretty much nailed it. A clear day is best, so they can be positioned anywhere. Good luck! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

I have had fabulous results with all kinds of stains! I guess the only way for you to see is to try it out yourself! Direct sunlight is definitely best!<br>
GOOD LUCK!
