The sun is a powerful and wonderful thing. Sometimes it amazes me with what it can do. One of those things is sun bleaching. It has amazing antibacterial properties and can remove the stains from almost anything. It even works when it is cloudy out, but a bright sunny day is better.
I sun bleach my dish towels all the time, and lately I have been sunning my new-to-me cloth diapers. I bought some used prefolds from a diaper service in my hometown, and most of them came with pretty heavy stains. With the help of the sun and a little lemon juice, all of the stains are completely gone and my diapers look brand new again! They smell wonderful also!
The best thing is that I didn’t have to use a ton of nasty chemicals or lots of grunt work and arm strength to scrub the stains out! You can’t beat that!
