Piog: How I stripped my cloth diapers using the rain
Experiment #1: Hang dirty inserts and prefolds straight from the dry bucket in an all day rain. Bring in the inserts and prefolds in and wash with detergent and covers. Wash the inserts again without covers or detergent. Hang over night
Result: Some of the inserts came back to life. The ones that needed the most stripping had very little noticeable difference
Experiment #2: Hang clean dry inserts in an all day rain. In the evening, I washed all the inserts without detergent and let them dry over night.
Result: I noticed that this really brought life back to my inserts, even the ones that were in need of stripping the most.
Experiment #3: Wash the dirty inserts in the bulky setting and then hang them out in the rain. In the evening, I washed them with detergent and the covers. Finished up with the wash by themselves without detergent and hung them overnight
Result: Not much different than Experiment #1
Variables: Some days were more rainy than others, some inserts needed less stripping than others, some inserts improved with each experiment because they didn't need as much of a stripping, and some inserts fell onto the muddy ground when it got windy.
So I would say Experiment #2 was the best result :)
