Re: I want to throw my diapers away!!!!!

Thats the exact wash routine I use, washing everyother day....with the same dipes/inserts you have. I also use sportwash (sensiclean) or washing soda/simple green to wash.....BUT every other week or so I use a few scoops of Sun brand oxygen cleaner & dawn in the washer during the 30min hot soak. I havent had a stink problem yet.

Re: I want to throw my diapers away!!!!!

I don't have a solution but can totally feel your pain. I never every had the stinks with my dd. We used the same type of dipes but lived in a different house. I can only guess that it's the water hear that is the issue.

I wash a full cycle on cold. Then I wash on hot with a little soap and an extra cold water rinse. Then I wash again on hot with no soap and an extra cold water rinse. I STILL find my dipes stink. I have tried bleach (maybe need to do it again), baking soda, vinegar, oxyclean, calgon water softener. Nothing keeps the stinks away permanently. Once I week I just keep on washing until I don't see bubbles. I swear it takes 4 extra rinses even though I hardly use any soap. Plus, even when I do it they still sometimes stink.

I guess I may try the bleach every other wash and see what happens. I just cannot run the washer 4 or 5 times every 3 days. It's just too much!!!!

if nothing else mama...you may have to use more bleach than you really want to at least the one time. i promise it won't kill your diapers from the one time...but throw a whole cup into the wash and then rinse your little heart out! you'll be pleasantly surprised at the end. like i said IF NOTHING ELSE WORKS! which it sounds like nothing else has worked...

Re: I want to throw my diapers away!!!!!

Are you using regular vinegar? Or "flavored" ? I had some stinkies with some of my hemp inserts when I forst started using cloth, but ever since using Apple Cider, it's been fine. Give that a try.

I'm so sorry mama! I can't imagine how frustrating that would be!

Re: I want to throw my diapers away!!!!!

I used only pockets with my second baby, and often had a really bad stink problem. We have some now because I got them as a gift for #3, but it's only been 3 weeks. But I seem to remember that using vinegar made them really bad. Switching to Sportwash definitely helped. And the inserts and pockets HAVE to be seperated before tossing in the pail. Now I'm using Allens Naturally, because that's what the FB site says to use, and line drying everything. So far, so good. Also, I would soak in warm instead of hot, and not for too long. Otherwise, you're soaking the stink right in.

Re: I want to throw my diapers away!!!!!

P.S. Do you have hard h2O? We do, and that's why the vinegar doesn't work.
