"Well I'm here to admit my deep secret.  I haven't been completely honest, so I feel it's time to fess up.  My first washing experience was great right?  Guess why?  Oh yeah, that absence of poop…

Well not today folks.  Today's washing experience incorporated what my husband affectionately called "poopsplosion."  Is that too much information, dear readers?  I feel like I have to come clean, because my diapers certainly look like they didn't.  I've seen tips where people talk about using brushes and such to get out stains, I just don't find myself being that dedicated to the cause when it comes right down to it.  Of course, I'm not really that crazy about stains with my regular stash either.  We can never forget, these are designed to catch poop. Stains and poop happen. (that takes me back to an awesome 80's bumper sticker!)

I'm tempted now to see if a wet pail would help with staining issues.  It seems like with the hand washing you might need a little more soak time.  Maybe I could get a wet pail with a little OxiClean (have you entered Captain Fussybuckets' OxiClean giveaway yet?)

So, I ended up with 5 stained diapers and placed them over my railing to dry and when I went to gather them, only one still had a stain.  Bonus for me and props to the sun.  Who needs bleach when you have a mass of incandescent gas shining on you?

So my conscience and my diapers are now clean and we can move on to new and better things. Wet pails! Aren't you excited?"
