Stains usually wash out in later washes. I try to hang them in the sun if it happens to be out when I'm washing.

How long do you leave them in the sun? What about winter time? Does it still work then? I mean, I guess the sun is still out, lol, but we get some crazy winters here.

I haven't had much trouble with staining... on an occassion there might be a slight stain after one wash, but it comes out after another wash or 2.

I leave them out for a couple of hours to all day...just depends on when I remember that they are out there! I'm not sure about winter sunning yet, but I have read of people putting them on the dashboard of their cars or something similar to get the sun when it's cold out. I'm not sure how the winter will effect my line drying...I'm in Texas (just moved here), but I'm sure it gets chilly sometimes. I think. :?

No stain issues here. I line dry my diapers almost every time. I very occasionally bleach them.
