Below I've collected tips from readers sharing how to remove cloth diaper stains.
I think we all know, although this is gross, that it partially depends what your baby ate or drank, which causes the stains, to know for sure how to remove it.
That means if all else fails check the A-Z Stain Removal Guide, which lists instructions for over 100 types of stains, for very specific instructions on that particular stain.
However, unlike with many types of fabrics where you don't have to worry quite as much about what detergents or stain removers you use on them, cloth diapers are a bit different.
You don't want whatever laundry products you use on them to cause irritation to your baby's sensitive skin, or to mess with the absorbing qualities of the fibers.
Therefore, these stains are somewhat unique.
Below I've collected tips that readers have submitted, so far, for how to remove these spots, in general.
I'd love to hear even more tips from cloth diapering mothers (and fathers) who can share what products or home remedies they use, to add to this page, to provide even more ideas and tricks for everyone to try. If you've got any, you can share your tricks and tips here.
So, below are the tips I've already received! Hope they help.
Here is a natural removal stain tip from a reader that I just loved!
While this might not be news to some it certainly was to me.
The sun works as a stain remover. At least that is what I found on my whites.
I'm sure my grandmother told me this at some point...I was interested in other things at the time.
Since I don't usually hang our clothes out to dry I never discovered this until recently. We were trying a new type of diaper for our second child. It was suggested to return the diaper covering to it's original white condition just set it out to dry in the sun.
It worked great!

Thanks Christa for this great natural removal stain tip. I love using natural products for stain removal as much as possible, and what could be more natural than the sun?
Since two of you have mentioned this tip for removing these spots, I'm convinced this is the right way to deal with cloth diaper stains from now on, whenever possible.
I also love that this is such a natural way to remove stains, there is no chance of stain removal chemicals touching and lingering on your baby's skin.
So, does anyone else have any natural ways or products they use to remove stains from baby items? If so, you can share your tips here, and I'll add it to the page.
I hope you enjoy this gift, and stop by again soon!
