Diapers STILL leaking...PLEASE HELP!!!

Okay I am getting really frustrated and have been having to put my dd in sposies I have no other choice until I get my diapers fixed. I have 32 fuzzi bunz, and have been using them for a month and a half. I wash them with Tide. 3 days ago just about all of them started leaking. It started just at the legs, so I soaked them in oxyclean for 5 hours and then did 5 consecutive hot washes. I never saw any bubbles in the wash either. Today I tried them again and she leaked through the whole diaper, not just the legs but the butt as well. The inserts are not even wet at all. I honestly do not know what to do. I do not know if they are repelling or wicking, seems like both! I assumed it was detergent build up b/c they all started doing it at the same time. Please tell me what I should do.

Try a washing soda and simple green wash. 2tbls washing soda 9 squirts SG, wash on hot and rinse 3-4 times on cold. That should help.

do you have a pool supply store close by? You can get something called soda ash ( i believe that is the name) there and its the same stuff.

Re: Diapers STILL leaking...PLEASE HELP!!!

If you contact the Mom that runs the Fuzzi Bunz store, I'm sure she could help you. She's awesome with FB info. www.fuzzibunzstore.com

This link shows detergents and how "safe" they are for CD's! Hopefully you can get them all working again and maybe try switching detergent. Good Luck!!

Re: Diapers STILL leaking...PLEASE HELP!!!

Personally if I were you I would read and follow Mother of Eden's suggestions for stripping.

www.fuzzibunz.com/care.htm

Quote:
1. Get a good detergent like Allen's Naturally.

2. Run all of your diapers through a plain water hot wash.

3. Run all of your diapers through a hot wash with the full recommended amount of detergent.

4. If the problem is bad, repeat step three.

5. Run a cold rinse. If you have hard water you may want to add a water softener such as Baking Soda or Calgon Water Softener to soften your water and help release any left over detergent.

6. If you still see bubbles in your rinse run another cold rinse.

7. You can either Sun your diapers or tumble on low.

After this process (I know it is involved) you should have very clean diapers that do not smell like anything - no perfume - no urine. When the Fuzzi Bunz are completely dry, if you were having a buildup problem (repelling) take a nasal aspirator and put an insert into the pocket. Fill the nasal aspirator with water and put it close to the fleece and "pee" on the diaper with the aspirator. If it goes through your repelling problem is fixed. However, again, repelling should not be a problem with Fuzzi Bunz diapers.

Water softener. I need to use that ever so often because our water is highly treated.
