Question Smoke smell out of Dipes...

I just got a few diapers that smell like smoke . I washed them 3 times & they seemed ok yet when DS wet them they smelled again, and the Hemp insert was really bad . Is there anything I can do or does it just take a few more washings???

Our house burned down when I was a child. We used lemon juice and it took the smell out of our clothes (the ones we had left anyways!). I am a complete newbie so lemon juice may be a no no!!

I'd say a couple of hot washes will do it!?

Uggh, I feel for you. I bought an Aristocrat off of ebay and as soon as I opened the package cigarette smoke overwhelmed me. I have only washed it once because I only had one wool wash sample. It seems fine but when I change her in the morning it reeks.

I know you can use LEMON JUICE on diapers to enhance sunning...BUT it bleaches them when sunning...its supposed to be safe... I just wouldnt SUN them b/f washing...

I would also recommend vinegar....

I hear vinegar works well. I would wash them a lot in hot water...
