How do you get diapers brighter? Bought off ebay and was mislead.....

So, according to the pics, the diapers looked almost brand new with nice bright colors. So, I sold some of our AIO diapers in order to purchase these, and paid way too much for what I actually got! They are faded and dingy looking.....is there anything I can do to brighten them? Thanks!!!

Oxyclean? It really brightened up some used baby clothes I was washing. I'd never used it before, but after a soak in Oxyclean and adding some to the wash with my usual detergent, the white was brilliant. I'll definitely be using this more.

Make sure to leave negative feedback mama! Sorry that that happened to you.
What type of fabric are you trying to brighten up?

File with paypal if you don't want to keep them.If they were not listed correctly, you wil be allowed to return them and get a refund of the orig transaction (but not the return shipping cost)

If you file with PP they will advise you to return the diapers to the seller in the same condition as you received them...BUT if you want to keep them than a an oxy soak and some time out in the sun should help or bleach with lots of rinses.
