what to do about stinky hemp?

all my happy hempys and the hemp inserts i use in them all stink when dd pees on them. i wash them 1 wash/rinse cycle cold, no detergent. 1 hot wash/cold rinse with a little (about 1 tbsp) detergent (sun or Arm & Hammer det), hot wash/cold rinse with nothing added, keep doing this til there are no suds, cold wash/cold rinse then in the dryer medium heat.

they smell clean when i dry them but as soon as she wets them it's awful!

what can i do to get rid of the funk?

I would boil the inserts, do a few at a time. If the Happy Hempy's have elastic in them, I don't know if I would boil them. After you boil the inserts. Fill your washer with hot water to and add a few tablespoons of bleach let aggitate and then add your dipes and inserts. If you have hard water, I would also add some Calgon. HTH

Yup, what they said. Sounds like build up. I have the same issues from time to time. Calgon has really helped it.. The water softener, not the bubble bath

A cold soak with Bac-Out keeps smell away for us. When I was out of it for a month, I found that a Downy ball of white vinegar in the wash helped as well.
Good luck!
