OXYVIN soak on natural fiber AIOs?

I have some Swaddlebees Simplex that totally stink. Stripping with Dawn did nothing, among the several other things I have tried. They still stink once peed in.

So can I try the OXYVIN soak on them without ruining the elastic and PUL? This isn't going to be a regular thing, it's just a (hopefully) a one-time thing before I switch detergents. Has anyone done it with success on something other than just inserts?

I wouldn't risk it -- I washed my shower curtain w/Oxi and Vinegar and the picture that was on it totally washed away. I know that it's not the same thing as an AiO. Maybe someone can chime in who has actually tried it.

I would soak the AiO in a 10% bleach solution for an hour, then wash it, instead.

I've done it with BGE's and it didn't see to affect the elastic or the PUL...

I wouldn't do it either. I would try something like Mighty Bubbles before adjusting your wash routine. I don't like the idea of mixing vinegar and oxy at all though, I'm no chemist, and so I don't trust myself with that when there are safer alternatives.

youd think bleach would be more harmful then vinegar and baking soda however I will agree with you that anytime I used a little bleach and water mixture it took away the smells and killed any bacteria in the dipes

I've tried Funk Rock soaks and every other type of soak out there. I have tried bleach in the wash but not as a soak because I thought it would damage the PUL. I will try a bleach soak on clean dipes and see how it works. Thanks!
