WTH!!!!! Amonia!

Two days ago my daughter got up with amonia smelling diapers. So, I take ALLL her dipes except the prefolds and I stripped them. Well Last night I put on of the stripped ones on her and this morning .... AMONIA

Help!!! What is going on? In the year that I have been CDing I have never not had the stink go away.

I rinsed until the water was clear and I dried them in the dryer. I used ALOT of dawn and I boiled some water on the stove and added that to the hot water from the washer.



My name is Jenni I am a single mother of four kids Josh(12), Dakota (12), Dylan (9) and Sydney (7).

I my niece and nephew now, and also baby's I babysit.

Re: WTH!!!!! Amonia!

The only thing I've found for the ammonia is a vinegar soak. If I were you, I'd take all her diapers and soak them in the washer with 3-4 cups of white vinegar for an hour or more (even overnight), spin the water out and wash as usual. If it is a continuous problem, do a soak before every wash with 1-2 cups of vinegar. That's what I have to do.

Any other stinkies I've had have been solved with Tide.
