What am I doing wrong?

I use Grovia AI2 and the inserts smell funky. I also use flips and gmd or thirstiest hemp prefolds and they smell just fine. It's after she is wet. Not the burn your eyes stink I have heard people mention, but definitely a bad smell.

I warm rinse with nothing.
Long hot wash with extra rinse and at least half a scoop to 3/4 scoop of tide depending on yuck level.
Extra hot rinse.

The thirsties and gmds get clean but obviously not the grovias!

Re: What am I doing wrong?

I'm not sure what to tell you except that I have had some diapers come out clean and others not. The only thing that fixed it was to use more detergent for the sake of those few diapers that needed it. Are they the kind with the waterproof backing? If so, that could be why they don't wash as well.

My Mood:
I'd second using more detergent. If that doesn't work or creates too many suds, I'd try a different detergent.
