UV light to get rid of stains?

Postby mabo » Fri Aug 13, 2010 6:17 am

I have a few nappies that have some stains on them and the intermittent sun (with rain on and off) means that they are not coming out.
We still have an old UV light stored away upstairs and I was just thinking this could work. Would it? Is it the UV rays of the sun that bleach or is it something else? Might just pop them under it this evening and see if it works :D

It might work. I think it is the UV light that gets the stains out, but not sure if it's UVA or UVB, I'm guessing UVA... so if your lamp is UVA or both UVA and UVB it should work :wink: Good luck!
