I do rinse all of DS1's night diapers and all the poopies. We have never had an issue with DS2's straight pee diapers. It is so weird! And the interesting thing, we used diapers from the same load all day yesterday with no problems. Will be interesting to see if we have the problem again tomorrow morning.

I don't think it is physically possible to get more Tide in the detergent dispenser. And I do 3 rinses (should be enough, right?). I do my main cycle with an extra rinse, and since diapers wash at night then sit in the washer all night, I usually do a rinse in the AM before tossing them in the dryer. If I don't they have a slightly funky wet stuff sitting in a sealed container smell, since the washer seals so completely.

Also while we haven't been using them a long time my DD overnight diapers smell jsut like concentrated pee nothing more and they are washing up great.
Yep, your thread got me curious to try the Target stuff. Think I may walk over in a bit since it is across the street from the office to see if they have any.
