ugh :(
Right now I'm hating my cloth and I HATE sposies. However, we have a stink that just won't go away. My son is in cloth right now, but I'm still getting a bit of ammonia and just a strange stink. I actually wish DS was ready to PL

Re: ugh :(
What is your detergent? Are you using enough? How often do you wash?

I would say to use a splash of bleach. That should work. Maybe up to a 1/4 C to get them all clean initially, and then a splash in the load from here on out.

Bleach made no difference what so ever... I had used the same detergent up until a week ago (for 3 years). I've used RLR I've boiled everything. I've extra soap I've less soaped. I've quadroupled my rinses. I'd try tide my my son is allergic

Hemp stinks really bad and gets worse over time if it is not completely dry.
