Gah. My prefolds (Which have not been used for long) have stains in them already. I know this doesn't affect how they work, I was just hoping to keep them pretty. The white/unbleached ones I can sun, no problems there. But MIL gave me a bunch of colored ones (blue, green, purple) and I'm not sure how sunning would work for those ones. Wouldn't it cause the colors to fade?
Right now I'm washing on hot, with extra rinse. I'm sure that I should be rinsing in cold first, but I'm not sure how to do that with my machine- I need to look that up.
to get the stains out you will have to sun them. ive never had coloured ones so im not sure how the sun would treat them, but i hand our clothes outside to dry in the summer and i wouldnt say they have faded because of it.... it could depend on the type of dye used to dye them too
other than sunning idk, bleach maybe? but that would fade them for sure/make them blotchy looking
I would say try sunning them, they might fade a bit but I dont think it would be to much... ive also herd of people using oxyclean, im not to sure how it works though. Sorry I couldn't be of better help!
Soak in oxyclean with hot water for at least an hour then add a little bleach and finish the wash with rinse, and then do your usual wash after that. Helps a ton! I also find if you spray right on the poop with the oxyclean spray with the yellow handle, when you are doing your wash, it prevents stains.
(i actually got a patient's poo out of my favorite scrub top doing this)
