I've bought mostly used diapers since starting out and some do have minor stains and each of the sellers have said "nothing a little sunning wouldn't fix". I don't know the first thing about sunning, though. Is it just letting them sit or hang in the sun? How long do they need to stay in the sun? Do you put them out wet or dry?
Get them wet (either wash them or just run them under water), pour lemon juice on the stains, then hang them outside facing the sun or lay them flat. I just keep them outside until the stains are gone, usually at least 3-4 hours. The prefolds I got had MASSIVE diaper service stains, and they all came out and my prefolds look brand spankin' new now.
lol, I began sunning my diapers only about 3 weeks ago. All I did was hang the stained ones(didn't add a thing or even get them wet). After 3 days of success, here was my 4th attempt:
lol. The moral of the story is: it still worked! Turns out the snow was great for reflecting the sun back onto the diapers. Once the snow is gone I plan to put a white sheet under the drying rack. Though it should be noted that a lot of stains will disappear on their own after a few washes.
I also got gross sweat stains out of a white coat.
Yup i just take them out of the wash and hang them on my drying rack and let them sit out there most of the day. Some of my diapers and prefolds (more the natural fibered ones ) are a little stiff after sunning so I just through them in the dryer to fluff them. Since I've been using ecover on my natural fibers I haven't had to do that though (fluff them after sunning)

Where we live it's usually cold and snowy 9 months of the year, so I don't usually sun my diapers. When I strip with oxyclean the stains usually come out.
I have thought about laying them in the back window of my car though.
I love that snow cover photo though! So funny!
