Quick Question for Cloth Diaperers
NEVER MIND. The sun worked. That was miraculous. I guess 110° heat is good for something. Did I ever mention that clotheslines are against our neighborhood’s CC&Rs? So are solar panels. Now that green is so trendy, though, I wonder if those bylaws will get re-written. Hm…
Hi, Ladies ~
My baby’s waking up, so my more thorough post on what I’ve learned in my vast experience of 3+ weeks of cloth diapering will have to wait.
One question, though, that can’t wait: How do you get stains out of diaper covers? I mean the PUL itself. I typically wash at least every other day, almost always rinse out messy diapers, do a cold water soak in borax for a good long time, then wash in hot with my homemade laundry detergent (made from washing soda, borax, and castille soap). However, our covers are garnering more and more stains — brown, green, even pinkish! Ugh. They’re out there in the sun right now; I hope it bleaches them without destroying the PUL; plastics typically don’t do well in the sun.
I’ve done some searching, and there are LOTS of opinions about how to wash diapers, but I can’t find anything — at least not right now — about this particular issue, which surely, isn’t unique to us.
