I have a lot of Fuzzi Bunz I use them in my daycare and diaper service. My question is for some reason some of them stain and I am having trouble getting the stains out, so I am looking for suggestions and also how often do you wash your Fuzzi Bunz? Oh and all the stains were made by formula fed/milk drinking babies who eat table food. Maybe it's the bananas?

For me, I use one of three different methods to get out stains depending on how bad the stain is and if its a sunny day outside.

1. Sunshine
Sunshine is the most natural stain remover. As soon as your diapers are finished washing take them outside and lay them (or hang) in the sun. Be sure to add a 1/4 cup (or 4 tablespoons) of white distilled vinegar to the rinse cycle to avoid them feeling crunchy after drying.

2. Peroxide
Simply add 1/4 cup (or 4 tablespoons) of peroxide to the wash cycle. This is much safer and gentler than bleach.

3. Detergent Paste (for hard to remove stains)
Mix 2 tablespoons of powdered detergent (fyi - this won't work with liquid detergent) with 1 tablespoon of water in a bowl. Spoon out the paste and place it directly on the stain. Using an old toothbrush, brush paste in a circular motion over the surface of the stain. Leave the stain overnight to set and launder as usual the next day. No need to remove the paste before washing.

I didn't re-wash but it you are worried you could just run them through a quick rinse with no detergent.

Do you wash them again after the lemon juice? Because sunning does help, but sometimes I dry them and it is night.. I only dry them in my house I live on a dirt road off a freeway and railroad tracks... And we have tried liners it is more of a pain for the mom, she doesn't like them...

I second the sun! You could also sprinkle a little lemon juice on them before sunning them. I washed my fuzzi bunz every couple of days or else I had stink issues. The other suggestion of using a liner is a good idea, also. I used to use old receiving blankets I had cut up for cloth wipes. They were small rectangles so I could easily fold them and fit them inside their diapers as a liner. It really made cleanup easy.

All diapers get stains no matter what, the best thing you can do IMO is sun them out. Making sure you are cold rinsing them before you wash helps, and spraying or rinsing off the poop right away will stop most stains from setting, but it might not be an option for service diapers. If you want to avoid stains in the ones you use yourself and don't want to rinse them right away you could always use a disposable or washable liner in them so the poop doesn't touch the actual diaper.
