Honestly, I never had to strip my diapers with DD. I did one initial strip when they were new, using hot water and vinegar.

What type of diapers do you use again? With prefolds, I (on like, one occasion) used bleach to get out stains, otherwise I just left it or sunned them. They’re diapers, so I am not too concerned with stains lol

I have had great results from putting diapers out in the sun to fade stains. They are usually mostly gone after an hour or two; if you really want them to disappear completely it’s a good idea to leave them all day. It also seems to work better if the diapers are still wet when you set them out in the sun.
