Sun will bleach them out once it's warm enough to hang out

I have sort of tried that but it's little bits of poo which has dried on the fabric rather then stains iykwim. I have tried soaking the inserts to loose the poo off but haven't got rid of it all and was wondering if anyone has a easier way.

Try putting them in the freezer! Sounds gross, but wrap them in a bag first! Freezing can help to break stains down. After they have been frozen, try soaking in a strong sanitizing solution for a good 12 -24 hours, and then hang in the sun, or put on the window sill.

I'd say hang them out at night, but night frosts seem to have more or less finished, although we did have a couple last week!

I was going to say if it's dried bits of poo have you tried a good hard clothes brush to brush them out?

I put a nappy in the freezer last night (OH thinks I have totally lost it now :giggle: ) so I will let you know if it works. I'm going to get a nail brush on the minkee insert later :thumbsup:
