Sun Bleaching


I refuse to use Clorox bleach.  It’s toxic stuff.

So what can you do when your diapers have stains, or anything for that matter?  Hang them in the sun and watch those stains fade after only a few hours.  Its magical.  Take care not to leave diapers out longer than necessary as the suns UV rays can break down the fibers.

The direct sun is best, but cloudy day’s work too. A stain will just take longer to fade on a cloudy day.

Tough stains may need a little help.  Spray lemon juice mixed with water and then place in the sun.

The sun also helps ammonia issues and to sanitize diapers!  And it’s FREE!

I’m sunning some of my stash right now in an effort to sanitize/bleach the stains, so i can sell some of the diapers we don’t use as often.  Happy Sun Bleaching!

    • Eby had diaper rash around 3 months or so that turned not a yeast infection, which is hard to combat naturally. We succumbed to the doctors anti fungal suggestion and used disposables till it cleared. Then I battled the diapers. You have to kill the yeast in the diapers too in order for it not to spread back to the child. I refused to use Clorox, so I used RLR to strip the diapers and added grapefruit seed extract to the loads for while. We haven’t had yeast issues since. Grapefruit seed extract is controversial whether its really natural or not, so you have to weigh the benefit vs the negatives. You could try tea tree oil as an alternative. Has she tried GSE or tea tree oil?
