stinky diapers

My sister is using cloth on her 5 month old. They have been very stinky. Any tips on getting the smell out? She is using all free and clear.

Re: stinky diapers

If they are stinky they are not clean. What is her wash routine? What dipes is she using? Does she have hot enough water and add a disinfectant like bleach or oxy?

Re: stinky diapers

Either more detergent or a splash of bleach in every load. Less is not more when it comes to cleaning diapers. If you pooped your pants, would you use less detergent or more to get them clean?

What's the wash routine and how often do you wash? You need to maybe wash out yet another time.what you're of water and maybe more detergent.

All (scented) didn't work for us. I use Tide. Maybe she could try Tide, or use bleach.
