Thank you, all of you. I feel stupid. I studied people's laundry problems and didnt want to have stinkies, ammonia, stains,etc. and I didn't -- I have dead elastic! Sheesh.
My diapers tonight are in a sanitary wash (put them in before i read the consensus here that sanitary is too hot) with only Charlie's in the pre wash and Charles plus a tbsp of oxy in the regular wash. I will dry them part way and try to air them after, or maybe I will dry them for less time and then put them in a cold dryer for a while? It's rainy outside.
Will look for those people to help me repair these elastics. I adore the diapers (until I kill the elastic). They are Chelorys.
