:hug: :hug: :hug: could you try a half dose of vanish in with your next wash? You might have to run an extra rinse with it though but it's usually pretty good at getting stains out. Hope they are feeling better soon

I know you probably wont like this but I'm a real coward and revert to disposables when ever Charley gets diahorrea from teething. :oops: Just cant be doing with all the mess plus it means he doesnt get nappy rash and I dont have loads of extra washing. I've washed my Bambinex Bamboo at 90 before now as long as they are white/cream shouldn't hurt but high temps dont usually get rid of stains.

you could try soaking in bio overnight and then lots of rinses?

Put them on the washingline (damp) for 24hrs starting overnight - they'll get the maximum uv coverage that way even if it's cloudy that should help a little ...

You could try some vanish colour bleach (the pink liquid) and make sure you use it with a full dose of a bio washing detergent... (then another wash with nothing before it goes on lo's bum)

I'd just hang in there and get them outside the moment the sun peeks out. Even if they're clean and dry at the time, just wet them a bit and plonk them outside! Annoying in the meantime (I hate stains!) but they will come out eventually. :wink:
