Second hand diapers/second hand smoke

Ack. I just bought some used newborn aio diapers that are near perfect... Except they smell like cigarettes. How can I get that out? Blue dawn? Or just wash as usual?

Wash as usual and hang dry outside if possible everything my mom gives my kids even new with tags that has been at her house smells like that and she doesn't even realize it.

Absolutely disgusting. Who the hell smokes in a house with children? This may be way beyond what others find reasonable but I would send them back and suggest a refund and for her to be honest and disclose that the come from a smoking household.
People disclose that they have dogs and dogs don't go near diapers. Smoke is airborne and nicotine sticks to everything. Sorry, I am just sickened by this.

I got a couple of AIO'S once that smelled like smoke. A few washings and line drying outside for the smell out. I think outside helped a ton, fresh air does wonders.

Re: Second hand diapers/second hand smoke

This may sound judgey but I find it really odd that a smoker would cloth diaper no matter what angle I look at it. Cost? Environmental? Well-being of child?

The other I saw two parents smoking (and yelling) in their car with two in carseats in the back. It made me really sad and angry.

Just to offer another possibility, I've seen mail carriers and truck drivers smoking, and have heard of instances where shipped items smelled like smoke as a result of the mail carrier or truck driver smoking in the truck.

Or there could be a non-parent living at the house and smoking... who knows (though I agree it's disgusting and shouldn't be anywhere near littles). I think I would probably do bleach and a squirt of dish soap and several hot washes.

Well, you should see them now 3 were white and 3 were dark green.
Well the white ones are now lime green.

I'm guessing she dyed some of the white ones green. Lol

Ah well... Now what. They don't even look like what I bought.

Yikes! I would just keep washing them by themselves until nothing else bleeds. Sorry that happened to you mama.
