Used Funk Rock and now they smell sour?

Maybe some more experienced mamas can help me out.

I thought our diapers (and mostly inserts) were needing a good cleaning. I ordered Funk Rock and followed the directions...and now instead of smelling like ammonia--or just plain stinky--they smell sour-ish when they're fully peed on.

Ideas?

I do have some RNG Hard Rock, but prefer (and have been using) our Country Save detergent.

Honestly, sometimes I wonder how RnG stays in business because their product doesn't seem to work very well, and you can go back through this forum and read tons of complaints!

Imo, Funk Rock just isn't a good enough "deep cleaner". I'd use bleach, personally! I used to be so afraid of bleach but I used it once and my diapers were sparkling clean. I just rinsed and rinsed until the bleach smell was gone.

ETA -
your diapers shouldn't smell like anything funky and definitely shouldn't have any ammonia smell. If they do, that means they aren't getting clean enough during your normal wash routine... How much detergent are you using?

I know they shouldn't... So I started 1- rinsing, 2- washing (Only using half the detergent they say, I have an HE washer) and 3- doing a full wash cycle without soap.

I didn't like the Hard Rock so that's when I switched to Country Save. It was much better after that. I just ordered the Funk Rock, b/c that's what a friend uses on hers. Maybe I should try another stinky-remover. Suggestions?

Maybe I'll just bleach all the inserts. They're all MF.

I didn't find that Funk Rock worked at eliminating stinks for me.

Maybe try a long hot water soak? I use bleach here every couple washes- love it, but I know not everyone likes doing that.

Bleach on the diapers or just the inserts?

Id bleach everything but at least the inserts if they are giving you problems.

I bleach everything too. But if its the inserts that are smelly you could just bleach those. Although I would want to do something to get any funk rock residue out of the pockets if they are fleece - like a soak or something.

And after I do that (I'll probably just bleach the inserts for now), don't use the Funk Rock again? Or do you think something is just locked in there? Just want to know if I should sell the stuff off if I'm not going to use it.

I would not use it again honestly. If you like the Country Save and it's working (meaning no smells ever) then stick with that. If the Country Save is leaving you with any smell, ammonia or stinkies, I would use more and some bleach.
