I love the sun!
 
I washed dipes last night and every.single.piece that DD had pooped on was stained! So I sunned them this morning and now they are all pretty again :wub: Here are the before & after pics for anyone that doesn't yet know the power of the sun.

Aww yes, a fellow Minnesotan who can understand my plight of no sun. I'm loosing my mind over here.:hairpull: Can't wait for sun again because I need to get rid of stains.

Isn't it awesome!? :lostit: I always am a little in awe when I see the finished result. My little one has a real habit of "staining" my favorite diapers with his EBF poop, but the sun takes it right out! I even have success with "sunning" when its cloudy out. But, I did forget I had diapers out on the drying rack yesterday and they got completely soaked in the rain. Oops. :giggle:

Hope you guys get some sun up there soon :goodvibes: Lately it seems like we've been split evenly between nice and sunny, or pouring rain.

I just told DH today that I am in total bliss hanging dipes in the sun! The results are fantastic. Today I am sunning 2 of DS's shirts and a skirt of mine. I cannot believe the results. I used lemon water for the first time today for some stubborn food stains, worked like a charm!
:yay: the sun!

I've had luck sunning diapers without any actual sun. :giggle: I just put them out on a day with clouds but still kinda' bright (not fully) and it worked. Took longer than direct sun but worth a try!

howdy! another devotee of the sun's stain removing power. have bought some dipes here frankly described as stained. so glad i took the chance; all gone! seems to work best for me on cotton, what's your experience with hemp, bamboo, pul?
