Help! My diapers are turning brown!
 
I don't know what could be happening! I have a MOE hanging diaper pail and put them in there when they're wet. Quite a few are turning brown. They haven't been pooped in. The whole diaper is turning brown where it's wet. I don't want all my diapers ruined. Anyone else had this problem?

:headscratch:

Are they new(ish) diapers?? What kind of diapers are they??

Not new. One is a PW. One is FCB (the inner and doubler). One is a kissaluv. No rhyme or reason to it.

How long have they been in the wet bag?

Never more than 2 days. I usually wash every third day. Should I wash every other day?

Maybe it's deposits in your water causing that reaction?? I'm not really sure what you could do about that though. Try stripping your dipes, see if that helps

Use some non-ultra Dawn dishsoap to strip them. Sounds like you might have water issues. Are you on a well? Do you have to use a water softener?

If you live in an older house, there could be rust deposits in your pipes. It seems like we talked about that in college biology class at one point. Maybe that's why they're turning brown?
