How to strip FB
I have some new FB that need to be stripped. We just got them in the mail and they are leaking. Please tell be the best way to strip FB so that they won't leak anymore. Thanks so much.

You need to wash and dry them on hot to seal the PUL if you have not done that yet! :) HTH!

Ok then don't I do something w/Dawn?

You can put a couple sqirts of dawn in your wash and then make sure to rinse real good, but if they are brand new I wouldn't think they needed to be stripped. I would say they need the PUL sealed by washing and drying on hot! HTH!

They aren't new. I got them for another mama. I thought I had to scrub them w/dawn and a toothbrush?

1) You may just need to seal the pul by drying them on high. If that does not work...

2) Detergent build up:
Put in your washer on Hot to see if there are bubbles. Wash on HOT HOT HOT to rid the diapers of extra detergnet.

3) Fabric softener build up. Add Joy to hot hot hot water. Try scrubbing in your sink with a toothbrush then wash.

Also are they leaking right away, or after an hour or two?

Good luck!
