CRAPPY! My fleece is worse after stripping. HELP!!!

Ok talk about frustration.

I washed the pockets in hot with dish soap and hot washed warm rinsed 4 times after, no bubbles. Now they are ALL repelling! WOrse than before! What the heck? What do I do now? I am seriously desperate here I have hundreds of dollars worth of pockets that are essentially useless.

Someone please help me.

Did you use original Dawn? I think that it has to be original Dawn. I'm sure someone more experienced will chime in with some advice. Good luck.

Hmm.. I've tried 3 diff. kinds of 'Dawn' so far (including the original) and all worked fine for me. I never tried Ajax though, so maybe that's the culprit!?
If you have a Dollar store around, their 'Sun' detergent works well too!

The sun does work awesome, Walmart always has it (some of them anyways) and it always worked great for me

Is the sun for regular washing daily or for stripping the diapers?

Im telling you the repelling is WORSE now that I stripped!

I always wash my dipes (inserts & wipes) w/either Sun or Dawn. Never had a prob. I really just use a tiny squirt for a full load though, maybe 1 Tbsp.

No idea about the detergent you used. But, I do know original dawn works! Wonders! Don't worry, they're not ruined. They just need to really be stripped. Have you tried hot water, again? After the first cycle? Have you tried washing soda?

Sorry. The dawn I have is blue. Original formula. It is used for lifting oil.

Well.... I went out and bought some dawn, its the original blue stuff but it says ultra concentrated! They didnt have any non concentrated at all.

I am a little worried now, because its REALLY foaming up in there! Its going to take me a zillion washed to get that foam out of there!

I also got some regular SUN to keep up with for regular washings, if I can ever get this taken care of, that is!

I am so stressed! I have a cup of tension tamer tea brewing now.

DH isnt much help, he is convinced that this is the end of our diapers and that we will have to go back to sposies! Even he likes the cloth and is disapointed.
