Our baby is due in mid october, right before the cold weather and then snow strike.
I know the sun is great for bleaching out stains but what do you do when temperatures reach freezing and sun is scarce?
Sorry if this is a stupid question.
ngarden01:I asked this question a little while ago too! Everyone said to still put them out in the sun when you can (it's the sunshine that bleaches them - not the warmth) then I believe everyone said that you can pop them in the dyer for a bit to soften them up
oh perfect, thanks!
Even on cloudy days you can get a sunburn and you can still sun your diaper stains out. It's the UVA/B rays that get rid of stains. You may just need to sun them more than once to get rid of all the stains.
Sometimes, I lay them on the dashboard of my car on a towel. I can't hang them in the window because we have a UV filter on our windows.
ericaandzac:Our LO was born in October as well. I washed and line dryed my diapers as usual...but when I had stained ones, I would set the drying rack in front of a sunny window and put the diapers with stains on the side facing the window. They still dried inside (especially when over a heating vent) but got the bleaching effects of the sun! You can also line dry them beforehand, then just wet the parts that are stained with a little water with your hands and put them in a window/outside. Just remember, putting anything stained in the dryer first sets the stains and makes it MUCH harder to get out. However, I haven't really had this problem with diapers. Only clothes.
I didn't realize that it works if it's just by the window! I'll be doing this for sure.
