Aside from bleach and sun...

When sun is not an option and you've tried bleach, what do you use for staining/general dinginess?

If you have hard water RLR might help? You could also try an Oxy soak overnight, then wash then diapers.

Is oxygen bleach possible? What about a soak in your detergent?

I have soaked my diapers in the washing machine for 2 days with about 1 tbs of bleach. I have also done this with oxyclean. It works great either way.

I tried an Oxy soak with my ODD and ALL my diapers ended up shredded. Is that just a chance accident? I use all natural fibers and my BGEs literally fell apart after that.

WOW - I've never had that happen. I use BGEs too and Oxyclean soak for stains.
