I use regular DSQ prefolds and just recently had a few sneak into my regular load with my new jeans, so long story short I now have half a dozen blue diapers. What works well to get rid of the blue, bleach? oxyclean? I also have quite a few diapers that have orange stains from BM's. In the past I have line dried them in the sun to get rid of the stains, but now it does not seem to be doing the trick anymore. If you have any suggestions for BM stains as well that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

The other day I squirted fresh squeezed lemon juice on the stains and laid them in the sun all day. It worked wonders.

He is 12 weeks this thursday. I washed them with a tablespoon of bleach and some detergent. I use the Tide HE sensitive and so far we have not had any problems. I could not wait to wash them, today turned out to be wash day, so hopefully that fixed it!

How old is your baby? Very sweet. We've always used prefolds and have washed them in Tide with bleach. I know, they say not to do that but we've never had any problem with diaper rash except on my second boy. When that happened I used a non-sented, gentle baby soap. It didn't take out sains though. So, IMO, try washing them with Tide w/ bleach and give 'em an extra rise to get all of the soap out. It's worked with 4 out of my 5 children.
