I'd soak it in a bleach/water solution overnight in a bucket (or in your washer if you have a top loader) and then wash and RINSE with a few extra cycles. Good luck!

My friend had one just do that and she has retired it to swim diaper status if the bleach doesn't work out. Hers was a FuzziBunz too.

She just used the pocket part without the insert. It worked great, she did have to snap it down more without the insert and it held in the poop better having the fleece there.
