I was folding diapers the other night dreaming of the sun. Why you ask? Because winter and teething has been hard on my cloth diapers. Most are showing the effects of hanging inside in our basement or being put in the dryer to dry. They are stained. A few are quite nasty.
OK…so why was I dreaming of the sun? Because it gets stains out! With no effort on your part!
Think about it…what happens when you leave something in the car window for any amount of time? What happens to the side of your curtains that face the window? What happens to your lawn furniture cushions? They fade! The UV which is so nasty for your skin is the best thing that ever hit a diaper.
The key is to hang them out wet. If they are dry, it doesn’t work. This time of the year, if you are really desperate, you can wash the really nasty ones and lay them flat on a drying rack in front of a window. It works, but nothing like a clothesline in the warm weather.
And honestly, is there any other view from your window that you’d rather see? Or that great feeling of sticking it to the Power company?
