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

Re: I love the sun!

Isn't it awesome!? 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.

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

Re: I love the sun!

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!
the sun!

Re: I love the sun!

I've had luck sunning diapers without any actual sun. 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!

You're telling me you have trouble finding sun in Hawaii?!?!!? I don't think you get to complain I'm kidding but I wonder if the directness of teh sunlight does matter?? I'm also intrigued about the lemon water on shirts and other stains thing. Why did I never think to try the sun on our clothes???
