laundry question

The diapers that my son goes poo in still stink. I soaked them over nite in cold water and then washed them in hot water with half the recomended amount of sun detergent and a cold rinse then added white vinegar and did an extra rinse. This keeps happening to me and I don't know why. I am probably doing something wrong and just don't know it.

If it matters this has happened to my pockets and fitteds.

Re: laundry question

I would cut out the vinegar and maybe try using a few drops of tea tree oil. The cheapest place you can get it (I think) is Walmart (bottom shelf usually) with the vitamins. Brown bottle/yellow label $4.96 I think. I also only use about 1 TBSP. of detergent. You might be using too much (yes it's possible).
