Stripping Diapers

Anyone have any suggestions on how to strip our diapers?

We have a water softener so have soft water if that helps.

Re: Stripping Diapers

people say use dawn soap. I haven't and not sure if water type is determining factor on stripping. Stripping is for build up of detergent not smell. If smell use more or change detergents or look at wash routine....

Re: Stripping Diapers

What laundry detergent do people use on their diapers? We were buying ours at sprouts then they stopped carrying what we use.

Re: Stripping Diapers

You can use just about anything. You do not have to use a special detergent to wash diapers. Many people use things like Tide, Gain, All, Country Save, Purex, A&H, Dreft all with good success. What will work for you all depends on your water and washer.

My advice is if your diapers stink I would use whatever you use on your regular laundry. Use enough of it and maybe add 1/4 cup of bleach. A tiny amount of detergent will not clean filthy diapers. If the smell then that is from bacteria so I would make sure they are disinfected before putting them back on your LO.

Re: Stripping Diapers

I have successfully stripped mine with a TBSP of Blue Dawn in a full water load with a 1/3 of bleach. Then LOTS of rinsing!!
I have switched to Tide powder after trying CD detergents and being disappointed. Love Tide!
