Re: Diaper Stink Remedies

I did a few different things to get rid of the ammonia stink we had a month or so ago. I soaked all the inserts and diapers overnight in the washer filled with hot water and a cup or so of Bac-out stain remover. Then washed on super hot (turned up my water heater the night before for this load) with a capful of calgon and a capful (well to the 2 line) of reg Tide. Then rinsed a couple of extra times. Then bleached the inserts with just hot water and a couple of tablespoons of bleach and rinsed really well! This did the trick!

ETA: I have a top-loader, very hard water and use a combo of prefolds, pockets, microfiber and hemp inserts
