Thanks to Jenny for this Frugal Baby Tip!

My mother told me that her mother used cloth dipes and menstrual pads and would lay all of it in the grass to whiten. Something about the chlorophyll in the grass got all the stains out. I've tried it on dipes that were still stained after they were in the sun, and all whitened back to new.
