Striping dipes now, need help

Okay, so I've bought tons of FB's and other used dipes recently and have been using them for about a month now. I'm striping them in the wash with a hot cycle and am getting TONS of bubbles. How many times do I have to do this?? Is it best to use these when they come out and strip the others or just strip the others as I go along? I hate to have to use so much water and energy to strip these. Anything else that will help?? YIKES! LOL

Re: Striping dipes now, need help

I know, the first time I stripped mine it took forever! I felt awful with the amount of water I was using (and the wear I was putting on the diapers). But I would keep washing and rinsing until you don't have any bubbles or have very very minimal bubbles. You can add 1/2 cup of vinegar to the rinse and it will help rinse out the detergent. How much detergent are you using when you wash? It sounds like maybe you are using too much if you have this much build up after 1 month (unless you bought used then maybe there was buildup from before).
I would strip them all together.

Probably a bit too much detergent on my part and who knows about before. Should I strip dipes separate from inserts?? Will I notice a difference do you think??
