Thanks to Angela for this Frugal Baby Tip!

QUESTION: Someone tell me about how effective the sun is at getting stains out. Someone mentioned that they were hanging their stained diapers out and the stain would be gone. Is that true? (I hope so.)

It is very effective (as many will tell you)! I have some diapers that have
terrible stains that just seem to be here forever. But everytime I wash
them I set them out in the sun and the stains are getting less and less
everytime I set them out... So if it dosen't come out the first time don't
despair, it'll get better everytime you let the sun do its magic.

Another thing that has worked for really bad, dark stains is a weak solution of lemon juice, soak them, then put them out in the sun to dry, then I usually
rewash what ever I use this treatment on... Basically I get the same results
as plain sun, KWIM?
