mold
 
Am I the only person that gets mold on there natural fibers when drying on a drying rack outside? I don't understand it! I get little pink dots that eventually turn dark?

I have seen it before on here. How do you store dirty diapers. Most issues stem from dirty diaper storage.

I line dry and have never had mold issues from line drying.

We'll I just put them in a wetbag that's actually not wet you know. And wash every 2-3 days. In the winter I dry in the dryer and have no issues. But when its warm I want to dry outside. I have a standing drying rack with wood on the sides and plastic bars. I don't have a yard so this is on my little back patio? My son is eating solids now so when he has a poo I rinse in my laundry tub and lay there to dry then put it in the wet/dry bag. But I had this problem last summer and he was ebf and I just put it all in the wet/dry bag and washed it all?? I'm so frustrated I want to dry outside

I think maybe they need to get more air. Try leaving them in a more open enviornment like a pail maybe instead of the wetbag so they can get more air and spread them out more on the drying rack so the air can move more between them. You might try bleach every now and then to kill anything that could be making your problems worse. Hope you find something that helps soon!

Does a pail come with smell in the area? And can you recommend a pail and liner

I agree that the wet bag probably isn't letting then get enough air. I'd also second bleaching them to kill existing mold.

Do you ever add bleach to your wash? Maybe ever other week add a small amount to the wash. Also try washing sooner.
