How do I treat moldy diapers?
There's nothing worse than opening up your diaper pail to find black spots on your beloved diapers or clothing!
In order to get the mold out, you have a couple of options. You can make a paste with the Rockin' Green and apply it manually to the areas that are molded. Allow them to sit for about 10 minutes or so, and then do several hot wash/cold rinse cycles with no detergent in order to get everything out. You can add about 20 drops of Tea Tree oil to one of these wash cycles in order to sanitize the diapers, and then hang them on the line to dry.
As always bleach does remove mold, it is not recommended as it can damage your diapers, but it is an effective mold killing tool.
It's important to remember that since mold is attracted to damp dark places, even a dry pail can be a perfect breeding ground for mold to grow. Storing the diaper pail in a drier part of the house with the lid off might help keep mold from forming as well as washing more frequently.
