Thanks to Stephanie for this Frugal Baby Tip!

Hydrogen peroxide is used for organic stains. Dab it on, pour it on, just make sure that it thoroughly saturates the stain. I have found even stubborn perspiration stains will come out if I leave it sit for a day and then resaturate for a day. It will whiten an area that is regularly subjected to H. peroxide. But I've used it on my Dad's green and white Olympic torch cap several times so far and it has not affected any colors.

As far as using it to whiten your diapers in general, I've never tried it. You'd probably have to use an awful lot which would not be very economical. For stains, it works well!

I also understood from another mother about a year ago that saturating meconium stains with olive oil will get prevent staining, but unfortunately, I don't know if this will work after you've already washed and dried the diaper.
