Mold on diapers

I seem to have left a diaper in a wetbag in the garage and forgot all about it. I pulled it out and it has mold on it...any suggestions on getting it out? It is a HH and the mold is on the aplix tab and a tad bit on the back elastic.

Re: Mold on diapers

you could try bleach, but, honestly, with mold you probably will not be able to get it out. chances are the diaper is probably ruined. If the mold is only on the aplix, then you could replace the aplix.

I say bleach it and it will probably come out. I had a pail of prefolds that I accidentally left once before going out of town for the week, oops! Mold on them came out with bleach.

Re: Mold on diapers

This is the recipe my mom swears by for removing mold:

Equal parts of Bleach,white vinegar, and baking soda (she usually does 1/4 c or 1/2 c)

It works! She's used it on linen from an estate sale that had some mold on it. Good luck

Re: Mold on diapers

YOu'll just have to try a few things, bleach, then sun, etc. I had that happen with 2 or 3 o fmy infant prefolds last summer and it never came out. THey are now dust rags.
