If they are so fragile you need delicate and special care and detergents, they arn't worth poo. Our lo's poo and pee in these things saturating them in filth. hey need to be washer acordingly! get the suckers clean, but keep it simple and use some commen since. The cd companies are just scaring momas away and causing stink problems with all the warrenty/special detergent lies. Someone linked a pdf report by some chemist that did a paper for cotton babies i believe. I had no way to link it sadly. he siad enzymes will have NO effect on the diapers, just may cause a rash for a very few. they still stick with no enzymes crud?! Get real!

I do a 27 min quickwash cycle to get the poo off and rinse some of the pee out. I only wipe out poo and the washer does the rest.
I do a sanitary cycle with 1/4 cup bleach and tide. Then I'm DONE.
They get tossed in the dryer on HIGH heat for 60 min nd that's it.
I have a he fl'er and never had a hint of odor. I bleach every load, always have and will.

I even add reg fabrib softner to my natural fiber dipes, like my towels, there is no change in absorbency. Never an odor, nada. I have had many of the dipes we started with almost 7 yrs ago and never a problem from bleach, tide, or softner. I do only use the watery softner though, snuggle. Downey is really thick and make sme nervious.

Just my
To the bolded: That is a GREAT point!

To the second bolded: That is veeeeeery interesting.

Re: The No Stink, No Complications Laundry Solution!

When I first started researching cloth diapers, the laundry aspect scared my sh!tless. But after reading most of this thread, one thing stuck out at me which is the idea that if you got baby poop on your shirt, how would you clean it??

So since the beginning I have been using liquid Tide free and clear and had not one problem with stinkies, build up, repelling, ammonia, stains (I do sun though). My DD will be 8 months old at the end of the month and she's been in cloth since Day 2. I have stripped 3 times now, not sure if I needed too but felt compelled to after reading about it.

My advice, keep it simple!!

Re: The No Stink, No Complications Laundry Solution!

What I never understood was, if sitting in urine/ammonia for one to two days doesn't destroy them, then how could a detergent that's quickly rinsed out? That just never made sense to me! I'd prefer it if the CD makers would just drop the warranties for things other than snaps falling off, and lower their prices in return.
