TTO

Has anyone ever had the scent of tea tree oil remain after washing?

I use a few drops of tto in the diaper pail for odor control. After 1 pre wash in cold, a hot wash with BG detergent, and a cold rinse, I was shocked to still smell it when I took them out!

Re: TTO

Yes, it'll stay, but I don't mind. You could try putting a quarter cup of baking soda in there instead.

I like the way it smells, but mine always rinses out! I add it right to the wash.
