Re: Dirty diapers let sit for a month+

I've left diapers in the car for a few days and they just dried out. Poopy one was hard funky poo but didn't smell horrible, but I let it soak in my bathroom trashcan with soap, put it in the sun and it loosened the poo up then I threw it in the wash with bleach and they were fine. It did smell bad once it was wet again though! This was about a month ago, so it was a little warmer than it is now. Just like everyone else, dump them outside and assess the damage. And plug your nose just in case!

I remember that mushroom thread! I'd open and see what's in there...I have heard some use bleach to sanitize. I'd start off with a hot wash and go from there. I do think it depends if you have just pee or more.

Yep, I wash them on hot with bleach and then see what you've got going on. I definitely would not look at them dirty, I might never want to use them again

I don't think I will ever forget that mushroom thread. I would go outside and hose off then wash with some bleach if they are super funky. Let us know what you find!

I would be tempted to just through them away, but then if they were some of my favorites I would hate to see them go! And oh the $$! I would definitely open outside or in the bathtub hose down and assess. Chances are with some bleach and extra washing they'll still be usable.
