Stubborn stain removal?

How do I get those really stubborn stains out of pockets and fitted diapers?

I stripped the diapers with dawn and a little vinegar with very hot water. Then the ones that still had stains went through a hot cycle with oxi clean. Next up I sunned then, but with our wimpy sun it did nothing. So I soaked them in lemon juice and sunned them for 8 hours today! Still stains on 6 FB pockets and 6 Kissaluvs fitteds and everything else is fine. Although the KLs are more of a dingy-ness with a couple of faint stained spots now.

Has anyone used any kind of a boiling technique or bleach for a pocket? What about the vinegar & oxiclean? The whole poop-zone on these FBs is just a dark gray/brown color that has definitely faded since I started. I don't want to do anything too harsh, but I've run out of the gentler things.

I have found it at two different co-ops. Most natural foods stores should sell it. You can also get it on Amazon with free super saver or prime shipping. Make sure you get the stain removal kind and not the cleaner.

I have bleached pockets. Bg's come with instructions to bleach once a month.

Fels Naptha is awesome for stains but the bar is more of a spot wash than over all but I think people have shredded the bar of FN to make detergent out of. Maybe search for Fels Naptha on Google?

I was surprised today when I found bac-out in the natural foods section of my grocery store (Kroger).

I usually just squirt the Bacout right one the stains making sure to cover the whole area. Sometimes I will soaking the stained items in a solutions of bacout and water. You don't need much bacout to water, maybe a cap full or two per gallon. I also throw a cap full in my prewash with all my diaper loads.

Re: Stubborn stain removal?

Honestly I use stain sprays (shout ect) on stubborn stains... Ive had yet to have a stain that hasn't eventually come out. I love bac outs cleaning ability but it gives my DD horrendous rashes even when we added at the very start and double cycle rinsed.. BUt she doesn't react to say spray N wash..

Re: Stubborn stain removal?

I am in LOVE with Imse Vimse Wash Away Stain Soap. Wet it, get some on an old toothbrush and scrub the stain. Wash with next diaper load. Its CD safe and has gotten rid of almost all of my stains, including blueberry poo from toddler. And it last FOREVER. Had it a year and the block is only slightly smaller (1/3 inch shorter).

I use Bacout too, spray it on the poopy diapers as they come off the child. Helps with stains as well but the Wash Away soap gets the stubborn ones better and easier, IMO.
