I am so fed up with laundry!!!!!

Why are my ME Sandy's stinky??!! I just want to go back to flats but unfortunately I have an almost 6 year old who is still in pull ups at night. The maker of the pull ups told me NEVER to use bleach on them so if I want to bleach the babies diapers I have to wash everything separately. We have a top loader and I am using Tide Ultra. I do not understand what I am doing wrong. For all of the Tide users out there do you still have to throw some bleach in the mix every once in a while? I am about to get rid of the Sandy's and just use flats and some WH for our night solution. I have baby # 3 on the way in a few months. I need to figure this out before he gets here. Any thoughts or advice would be appreciated. Thanks!!

I would bleach them anyway... I'd rather destroy a few diapers and always get them clean than battle stink... I don't baby my diapers though I've had issues with Sandy's before but as they thinned a bit with age, it got better. And I do bleach them whenever I feel it is needed. Not sure what the trainers are made out of that makes them too delicate to bleach.

I believe they are bamboo. They are made by Ladder Hill Designs. I am thinking of ditching her inserts and just using hemp prefolds.

I would normally agree with your philosophy of don't baby the diapers but these things cost $30 a piece.

I would bleach them anyway, just not every wash. Bamboo is not as tough as a fiber as cotton or hemp, so that is why she is saying to never bleach them, but if nit bleaching them means you aren't going to get them clean... What's the point? Realisti

Is non chlorine bleach as good of a disinfectant? That is all that I have in the house right now.

No :-( It doesn't disinfect at all, actually.
