I Love hanging out the nappies when the sun is shining, even in winter. They stay out all day and come back in the evening looking all lovely and white again.
But what do you do to get the stains out of nappies when there is no sun. I haven't seen any for weeks and with a combination of BF poo and toddler man poo's (seperate nappies by the way) the nappies are starting to get rather stained not being able to hang them out.
Any tips? Or do I just put up with it until spring comes around?
I never bothered with Napisan so can't say whether it is bad or not. I seem to recall for every parent that swears by it, someone else says it rots nappies/destroys the environment or whatever.
I have heard of people that just leave them out for a few days (regardless of weather) and sometimes they come up lovely. I think rain is meant to soften them up a bit (as well as getting them wet again, obviously
Lucky you, having a good stock, you can experiment with any number of these suggestions.
I too am missing the sun I have a window ledge full of bamboo waiting to be bleached but it's not happening. I think napisan is fine for flat or fitted nappies with no PUL but I don't think it's recommended for AIO or pocket nappies. I have tried leaving out in the rain for 2 days and that did nothing to improve the stains. Haven't tried frost... not sure I'm convinced by that one but happy to be proved wrong!
It takes a while but even if there's no direct sun then they'll eventually get bleached if you leave them on the windowsill. To be honest I just live with it in the winter, it doesn't really matter as long as they are clean.
