Toothpaste and shaving cream for diaper stains???
 
I have a fuzzi bunz that has got a LOT of bf poo on it and after the first rinse cycle in the wash it's not looking like it's going to come out. I don't want to start the hot wash cycle for fear that it will set the stain in. So I went online looking for stain removal ideas and found on orangestarfish.com that rubbing white toothpaste or white shaving cream on the stain and letting it sit before throwing it in the wash will help take the stain out... anyone tried this?

Never heard it. I found that BF poo did stain, but would usually end up rinsing out just fine eventually with no special care!

I think I'd try sunning it before other options. ds has made LOTS of poo in his dipes and many still have yellow or green ish streaks/spots after cold rinses but they all come out of the hot wash cycle clean. Good Luck though!! :)

Odd. I've never heard of that either.
I would just use the sun.

I hot wash cold rinse my sons BF poo dipes and have never had a stain. I don't pre-rinse or soak.

Never heard of this! I'd try to sun them out and maybe use Oxyclean.

I find that sometimes big bfp dipes do come out stained but then eventually after a few more wear and washes the stain fades. I would be nervous about rubbing anything on that fleece.
