How to get out rust staining?

We just moved to a new house last week, and I didn't realize that the previous owner had left little to no salt in the water softener. Therefore when I went to do diaper laundry, all of my inserts came out stained yellowish How do I get this out? OxyClean? I don't want to use IronOut on diapers because that stuff is harsh, but I'm OCD about my diapers looking wonderfully white lol. Thanks in advance!!

I'd soak in Sun Oxycleaner and see if that does the trick. Sorry for the inconsiderate previous owners.

Mix 2 parts peroxide 1 part blue dawn...Do this in a well ventilated area and don't put it in a spray bottle. Scrub your inserts with this mixture and a toothbrush or scrub brush. It's slow going but it takes the rust out. I just did it today on a dipe that got a tag stuck in the drum of my dryer. The sooner you get to it the better. I've only used it on a smaller scale, but I see no reason it won't work for you. It works on every kind of stain, but don't over do it; it can cause some wear and tear if you use it too often.
