STINKIN' DIAPERS

Hi,

My 9-month old wears Fuzzibunz and I wash them in Charlies soap on Hot/Cold wash and dry them on medium-easy. But I can not seem to get the stinky smell especially after he wets in them. Any suggestions? Thanks.

charlies soap does not contain anything to kill bacteria, which normally is ok but you can get some smells, i suggest adding some bac-out by biokleen to wash to help with stink.

It was recommended to me to try using either dawn or RLR, as I am having the same problem.

Rockin' Green detergent has always worked for me! "rockin' a soak" does wonders

Dawn dish detergent? Have you tried it? Did it work?

When mine smelled I was using too much detergent, not enough water, so I washed them once in vinager and water adn lined dried and them started using less detergent and a full washer and they were fine.

Re: STINKIN' DIAPERS

I've had that before. I use an HE washer which doesn't seem to be great for cloth dipes and I can't just soak in the washer. I fill the laundry sink (tub sink) with hot water and 4 tbsp of RnG and soak all of my inserts for a few hours. I have also soaked the dipe but only for 30 mins or so. I'm not sure if you are supposed to soak them much or not so I haven't a whole lot. I do this about once a month to get them cleaned nice. After soaking, I run it through the 2 hour baby cycle on my machine with hot water and no detergent. It worked wonders...I had no clue what to do the first time and this worked great. The water that they were soaking in stunk and they smelled so clean and fresh after the process was done. GL!

I tried RLR and it seemed to help but didn't last. I stripped with blue dawn (yep, dish detergent! just a small squirt!) adding extra hot water (from my stovetop) and it worked! I think that my problem was not using enough detergent (Country Save) for my hard water. You just have to play around a little bit to figure out what is causing your stink: mineral build up, detergent build up, not enough detergent...

I heard using a few drops of tea tree essential oil in a wash load will also help with the smell because it's a natural antibacterial and antifungal. Haven't tried it yet myself, but my friend uses it all the time and it took care of her son's diaper rash, too!
