Re: I CAN NOT get my diapers clean! PLEASE HELP!

Don't know why so many are afraid of bleach? It has yet to damage any of my dipes! You should never have to deal with an odor. Let us know how it is when your lo goes pee. Sometime it takes more bleach or even a cple rounds of it to compleatly rid your dipes of the bacteria buildup.

Moma, what detergent are you using and do you use bleach to sanitise?
It doesn't sound like detergent buildup to me, more like a bacteria problem from dipes not getting clean enough.

Sounds like it's time to switch up detergents. I highly recomend the thread I posted earlier. RNG just doesn't work for everyone, kwim? I have had great sucess with tide, dropps, and arm and hammer. Lots of momas just use whatever they use on all of their cloths. Beccuase of all the specialty detergents causing issues for so many. Granted, it works great for some. Dipe laundry shouldn't be this hard.



Added: You may also want to use more bleach or even add it to your routine. Some companies even recomend it. I think bg is one of them, 1/4 cup. How often is totally up to you.

I have yet to find a soap (mainstream or otherwise) tha gets my diapers clean.

For me it's baking soda and borax or they're stinky.

It sounds like its the RnG, I had the same issue as did many mamas on here. Until I found Tide and Bleach I almost gave up cding. You should try Tide.

Re: I CAN NOT get my diapers clean! PLEASE HELP!

I just stripped the crap out of my pockets, no pun intended. Scrubbed every diaper with dawn and a toothbrush, rinse rinse rinse rinse rinse, cold rinse and spin, hot wash with extra rinse (tiny bubbles + oxyclean), sunned. For the inserts, I boiled them for 15 minutes, sunned. I did all 30 at once, too. We put her in sposies for a few days. Thank goodness. I had both repelling and stink issues. Yuck. We use a dry pail system too, and we had been using rockin green. I really don't like it, so we switched to tiny bubbles.

We had awful stink issues with Rockin Green. Don't be afraid of bleach- BG even recommends it once a month!
