  • Did you dry them? If so you are going to have to use bleach. Make sure you do an extra rinse so it doesn't irritate the baby's skin. If you didn't dry them, try washing them again in hot water with some baking soda.

  • Try hanging them to dry outside. The sun will naturally whiten the diapers, plus, it is better to hang them to dry anyway! Good Luck!
