Anyone have any safe methods from removing rust from diapers? We have hard water and I use Iron-Out once in a blue moon for the family whites, but I have no idea, and I am thinking not, if it would be safe for HH and Thirsties.



Any suggestions would be appreciated.

For the hard water I would suggest water softener.  You can buy it in powder form and add to your laundry.   Then i would second the sun.  I would hang them out in the sun to dry every time I washed them.



 



Let us know how it turns out k?

Have you tried lemon juice with salt? I've never done this myself but read about it. You soak the rust spot with lemon juice, sprinkle it with a pinch of salt and lay it in the sun.
