Question Q for all you diaper-stripping obsessed people!

I mean that in the nicest way I swear

Anyway, how much soap do you use in your diaper wash? I have never had any issues with build up, and I only use about 1/2 tsp. of soap per load (except that time my mom washed my diapers ) and that has always worked well for me. I'm just wondering if maybe some of you are using too much soap, and that is causing build up?

Re: Q for all you diaper-stripping obsessed people!

i've only had stink a few mornings ...like maybe once every other week. and one time from a fsot dipe (that yes i did wash prior to using). i use about a tbsp of det. go ahead and throw em in the dw kaela you may be shocked LOL. i had no suds whatsoever w/the first "load"....very little w/the second load. and lots with the third (mostly dipes i've bought on the fsot are in there). just b/c you have no stink doesn't mean you have no buildup lol.

yeah, i use barely a tsp of detergant, and rinse mucho times.....but i'm betting I'm going to get suds. Also, alot of us have used dipes in our stash, so all that history is in there too.

Re: Q for all you diaper-stripping obsessed people!

Okay I thought the reason for stripping was build-up which led to repelling Also, I have a dishwasher but I call him DH and I don't think he strips diapers And even if I do have build up, as long as it's not causing any problems it really doesn't bother me

Re: Q for all you diaper-stripping obsessed people!

I use less than one tbsp per wash and didn't have any stink issues but thought it couldn't hurt to try this ( lots of my dipes were used) and I got lots of suds so. I also had stains that seemed to surface even though I sun mine all the time. Give it a try, you might be suprised and it really is fun!

Re: Q for all you diaper-stripping obsessed people!

I strip my dipes by boiling them because I don't have a dishwasher. I think my biggest issue is that I have a lot of used dipes in my stash, now that they are all stripped hopefully I won't have a problem for a while!

When you "the stink" its not usually a build up issue.. not with pockets.. It normally comes from your soaker/insert not getting clean enough in the layers..

With buildup that does come from too much soap.. never had it and I used Mela 1/4 of a pump..

I use the scoop that came with my Charlies soap.

My dipes (pockets) don't smell, just my inserts. I have some that are previously loved though so at least this way I know they are ALL stripped and squeaky clean.

I also have hard water and I think I will ALWAYS have to regularly strip my diapers.
