So now that Alaina and Aiden have started solids-- going on almost 2 months with it-- the days of ebf poops are gone. In the beginning stains weren't a problem. But they have been eating blueberries a good bit recently since they have been in season. And on top of that it's been raining nearly every diaper laundry day, so I had to use the dryer for nearly 2 weeks. I have been sunning them for the past two washes and the stains aren't coming out.
Today I decided to try some lemon juice on the really bad ones. I squeezed a lemon, added water, dipped the diapers into it, and wrung them out. They have been outside for a little over an hr. I can tell a difference in the most of the pockets. This brings me to my questions.
1. Do I need to rinse and re-dry the pockets before using them again? Not sure if the lemon juice would irritate their skin or not...
2. What can I do about the inserts? I know they are clean, but I am not enjoying looking at the stains.
