I have always been very careful about what I use to clean my son’s diapers since I have read horror stories about terrible rash resulting from poor washing habits or using the wrong detergent – blah blah blah.
So when my son spilled spaghetti sauce all over his white diaper, I was stumped. We have never had a problem with poopy stains before so I never needed to look into stain removing from a diaper. I did the normal wash routine and sunned it – I thought the stain had sunned out but about 2 hours later, it somehow reappeared.
I didn’t think much of it and I only used that diaper if we were at the house or if was wearing clothes over it.
Recently, I found out that a cloth diaper store, Tater Bugs, had popped up within driving distance. My sister and I had to check it out – they had wet bags, diaper pale liners, amber necklaces, baby carriers, diaper detergent, wipes, and of course cloth diapers.
I found out they carried RLR, which I have been meaning to try out so I went to pick some up and the girl at the register suggested this stain removing stick called Buncha Farmers Stain Remover. I figured it was worth a shot to try it out.
The first stain I tackled with this little product – the 2 month old spaghetti sauce stain. I wet the diaper and rubbed the stick over the stain and then got my toothbrush I use for scrubbing stains. I didn’t scrub for too long – just enough to make sure the product was on the entire stained area.
I wish I had before and after pictures – the stain is gone. HOW AWESOME. I can’t wait to find other old stains to scrub out with this product. 🙂
UPDATE: This post has before and after pictures of some work this little stain stick did.
