There was a tip on her a while ago and I stupidly forgot to take note of it. Can any of you please help me, I think it involved milton and white vinegar but can;t remember - thanks

I know that sunshine is a good bleaching agent, but I'll squat here on your thread to see if any other tips come up

The sun really works...but at this time of year its pretty hard to come by. Do the stains really matter? I just wash mine and put vinegar in occassionally, but I'll admit that they are not as white as they could be!

In the sun - even just leaving them on the window sill works.

If you were desperate, then a soak in Milton would work, but I've never been that bothered

soak them in milton solution over night, then do a couple of rinses before washing as normal and adding white vinegar to the fab cond drawer.

Caution- milton can kill elastic in nappies if used too often- but a couple of times over the life of the nappies won't be too disasterous!

I don't think it actually has to be sunny, it's the UV that bleaches the stains.

cmot is spot on

Thanks everyone. DD2 is now too big for them so I will be looking for a new home for them and I don;t think anyone will want them with marks on - well to be fair there are only about 3 that need it.

I also seem to remember a thread ages ago that ebay have stopped people selling used (but clean) nappies is that right?
