Thank you! I can't wait. It will be my first time using cloth though so I'm trying to be prepared before I have to be.

I'm a big fan of vinegar for everything since I'm allergic to cleaners, glad to know I can use it on my diapers! Is it safe on bamboo too??

I JUST came on here to post about our nasty stinky ammonia diapers in the morning...it was so bad this morning that tonight I used a leftover-from-camping-trip sposie that we had in the house.
SO- I'm going to try vinegar and more soap. I think the microfiber insert under his pf might have been the culprit. My hemp inserts might be holding smell too.
Does anyone have ammonia stink issues with natural fibers???- I use mostly cotton prefolds and bamboo fitteds at night and the stench is still horrible in the morning. We co-sleep, so I need a solution fast or I will be using a disposable every night cause I can't take it anymore! The wool covers we use are holding stench too I think. Any help for that?
Sorry I'm hijacking the thread now...
