Thanks to Elke for this Frugal Baby Tip!

I just had to say that I finally tested the "put it in the sun" theory (to me) today!

Okay, so we haven't had much sun lately! But we have had 2 days in a row and I did it (put some stuff out to sun bleach), and it worked on a nasty baby outfit with organic cotton with yucky and plentiful baby puke yellow stains - you know the kind that you find when you packed away something clean and pull it out all YELLOW, blah!!!!

They are almost all gone after 2 washings and 2 days in the sun!!!!!!!! And then today I put out a Rainbow diaper that had a huge yellow stain on it (thinking, hmmmph... this will never in a million years go all the way away...LOL) and when I came home from an afternoon out I couldn't believe my eyes! It was 100% white, well exclusive of the rainbow trim. You absolutely could not see one tiny trace of stain! woooohooooo!

Now I just need to live somewhere that it sunshines more LOL
