Ready to throw these well-loved BG's in the trash!

I've washed them in Rockin' Green, Rockin' Green w/bleach and Tide HE powder with bleach and they STILL stink.

Have you tried sunning them yet? I have found this to help better than almost anything!

Try an oxygen bleach soak. About 4-6 hrs

Haven't tried sunning as it's been cold and cloudy here in PA. Will try soaking them and then sunning when the weather permits. Thanks!

Have you tried stripping with RLR? Those microfiber soakers seem to absorb lots of crud..
I'd try that then bleach them (EGADS!) and if neither worked I'd toss them.
I've tossed quite a few of our old Bg 2.0s lately.... they were just too sketchy and needed to be retired.

Have you tried an overnight soak in the washer with a small amount of bleach? I had to do that once with a stinky lot of diapers from FSOT a long time ago.

Re: Ready to throw these well-loved BG's in the trash!

I just got some stinky diapers off FSOT and bleach was the only thing that worked. I hate using it, but it was a last resort. Good luck!!
