Sunning in a north facing condo - Suggestions!

We just moved into a condo that has only north facing windows. I have tried lining my diapers in the window, but it does nothing for stains. Has anyone sunned windows in a car? The other problem with north windows is what to do with my plants? Will they make it in a north window? I really like the condo, just can't figure out what to do with my diapers and plants

I don't really get direct sun either, but it still seems to work and stains still come out. Have you tried it yet?

I live in a north facing condo but we have a balcony. I put up a clothes line and sunned diapers successfully from it. You don't need direct sunlight because there are mamas on this site who have "sunned" stains out on cloudy days. It's the UV rays that do the job and they are out as long as there is daylight.

We live in an apartment that doesn't get much sun, so I just take the stained diaper down to the pool with me when we go swim and lay it out on a chaise. I get some curious looks, but the diapers get their sun!

I will say make sure your windows aren't up if you decide to sun them in the car. I had FB's delaminate that had sat in my car

I didn't even think about diapers delaminating in a hot car. Thanks for posting!
