not to be annoying - but prefolds!

i second the trifold and cover option - its a little bulkier imho than a snappied pf but not more than a pocket once again imho

I am not sure what kind of water you have but Calgon Water Softener saved us.. It removes buildup from water softener salt because we have hard water... it made super bad stinkies in my MF and hemp. It was a lifesaver, I use it every other washing to keep them away...it might be worth a try

Use non-ultra Dawn. I can only find it at Walmart. That and having a top loader is the only thing that has kept stinkies away. I almost quit myself. Before I had a front loader and used Purex F&C.

I only use prefolds as inserts for this very reason. Microfiber and hemp both hold stink and it is so much work to get it out and it only works for a short time. start to stock up on used prefolds from FSOT an you will have enough in no time!

I have about every form of insert, but I use PFs more than anything!

Did you try boiling your hemp? Boil it for about 10-15min and anything that WAS in there should be gone!

We have two water softeners! We have super hard water! I use Calgon Water softener every other washing to keep the stinkies away. I just add it to my soap and it has worked! It is in a little detergent type bottle in the Softener/soap section at wal-mart Another mama on here suggested it to me when I was about to give up...
