Vinegar and PUL?

I ran out of Bac Out and ordered more, but used vinegar in the prerinse once, until it comes.

I am hesitant to do it again, because I thought I read something once about vinegar causing issues with PUL?

Re: Vinegar and PUL?

i use vinegar in my wash routine at every wash. the PUL diapers i've had for months (Bgs for the most part) show no signs of wear/tear.

I use vinegar every time, and I've never had any issues.

You should definitely read this thread: http://www.diaperswappers.com/forum/....php?t=1040786
Vinegar is safe and wil not harm the PUL.

Great, thanks everyone. I wish I hadn't ordered the BacOut now, LOL, if the vinegar is fine.

yeah I've read several places that vinegar is bad for PUL but then I've talked to MANY MANY mama's that have had NO issues with it. I'm new to CDing but I trust the mama's that use it every wash like PP!!

Re: Vinegar and PUL?

I have used vinegar and baking soda before. It didnt get rid of the stinky smells or stains, but didnt seem to do any damage to the diapers either. Still, FWIW, I noticed no difference at all.
