Re: Sunning stains out, should be a sticky.

I bought some used Thirsties covers and just washed them today. I used 1/4 cup of bleach in the wash cycle and soaked for 15 minutes. When I took them out of the washer, a few of them still had staining on the inner leg gussets. I laid them out on top of a bookcase in front of a large window. After only a few hours (the sun went down), they were noticeably lighter. I'll have to try again tomorrow before late afternoon!

should you hang dry them every time? or can you put them in the dryer if you don't notice any stains? A dryer won't hurt them at all, right?

Would sunning work on wool covers too?

Re: Sunning stains out, should be a sticky.

Drying prefolds or flats or even inserts isn't going to hurt them. A dryer can hurt PUL or even snaps. I know a lot of people say that they dry their covers without any problems, but I would tumble dry or dry on low for 10ish minutes, then finish on a line (or hung over the backs of your kitchen chairs if you're like me) if they even need it. The PUL is like a plastic coating and plastic can be compromised by too much heat. That's oversimplifying the material they use, but you get the gist.

I don't think sunning would hurt wool, but I don't know if it would help. I don't have any experience with that!

Re: Sunning stains out, should be a sticky.

I have been impressed with sunning stained diapers I got on FSOT as well as stained bibs/burp cloths. Now I have an EBF infant and sunning is even more amazing. Just an hour in the sun and yellowish stains on my prefolds are completely gone!
