It depends why you're stripping.

Penguin Sport Wash, you don't even need to start with clean diapers. Most people strip once a month.

I'm stripping bc yesterday I noticed a smell on my "clean" diapers. It doesn't smell like ammonia and its not strong. It just doesn't smell fresh or have no smell.

What's your wash routine like, type of diapers, what detergent do you use, hard or soft water?

I have only used RLR or blue dawn and I think they pretty much worked about the same. I strip monthly to every 6 weeks or so. We have really hard water and had stink issues, so I do it as a preventative measure.

How much of each do you use? I'm trying to decide whether to try rlr or blue dawn. You put the dawn right in the washer?

I use rockin green detergent (which I'll be changing after this bag is gone since it's obviously not working well!), medium water-not hard or soft really, and I do a cold rinse, hot wash with detergent, followed by another cold rinse. Hang to dry.

This may be a crazy question but what is RLR?
