Getting stink out of fleece

This isnt technically a diaper question but I thought those of you that use fleece covers may be helpful.

DS has a pair of fleece pj pants that some pee leaked onto while he was sleeping awhile ago and for the life of me I cant get them to not stink. Its not a terribly obvious stink but if you smell the waist band it smells like pee.

I wash his clothes with the same detergent I was his diapers with and they dont stink so I dont know why these particular pants continue to stink. UGH!

Re: Getting stink out of fleece

Polyester stinks sometimes and there is very little you can do besides using a stronger detergent. Maybe someone else knows more than me! Ha!

Maybe hand washing with blue dawn? It seems to work on the blanket my DS uses. Just be careful to rinse it out since dawn can mess with the washer

Re: Getting stink out of fleece

I've had our fleece pants go through the wash with diapers and bleach and never have had an issue. Bleach is my only solution for stink. It has never affected any of my covers.

Ditto to the bleach.

I had the same issue with some of my sons fleece pjs. I washed on hot with an extra rinse and added vinegar into the fabric softener compartment.

Re: Getting stink out of fleece

I'm not sure about fleece diapers but for my outdoor clothing and long underwear I'll use a non-detergent from nikwax that is specifically for these synthetics. Fleece and Capilene type fabrics definitely trap a funky smell with all clothing, let a lone diapers!

Bac out. If it can get the stinks out of my husband's wicking polyester exercise shirts, it can do the phone pants
