Re: Why us?!
I've made/cut fleece liners to fit perfectly into each diaper for this very reason. It's cheap and protects the diaper. That's my suggestion. It also makes poop dumping a breeze. I've also resorted to separating prefolds from dipes and then washing accordingly. I usually wash the dipes on a longer cycle then the prefolds. Also, I've been doing a medium (in length) cycle where I wash strictly with baking soda on cold. This agitates and washes the dipes so that they are nice and wrung out and washed before doing the hot/cold cycle. Then I wash on a hot/cold cycle and we have had great results from this! It does take longer but it's totally worth it! If that doesn't work, sun does the trick.
I hope those help!
