than my cpfs? Anything you can recommend for my wash cycle to prevent that? I live in Oregon and we are getting ready to go into the rainy season so I need to prevent as many stains as I can as sunning will be rarely possible

With all my diapers including hemp I spray all signs of poo off them before I place them in a dry pail and I wash once a week. I have one nasty stain on a minibun that I cannot get out on hemp but that is because the sucker went moldy on me. Now I was told hemp never got moldy but that sucker was in the car diaper bag for three weeks with poo in it no less. So it was probably because it thought it was left to die and decided it mise well just kill over.......


I would prewash it once in cold water as hot will set the stain even worse! I just found this out recently because I did not know either that hot will set stains instead of release them. Anyway that is about the best you can do besides using some shout or other stain remover, that may not work anyway.

Anyone else got any ideas?

I too notice that hemp tends to hold onto poop stains. Try a soak with oxyclean or whatever oxygen action stuff that's available to you.................last resort is bleach (but it does work)

Can you try Bac-out on the poopies? My DD is still EBF, but her poos have been staining something awful. I just squirt a little on the poopies (I don't spray or dunk), and it works! The only stained diaper in the last load was the one she pooped on before I got the Bac-Out.

I am in love with the stuff!
