Re: looking for an EO that smells good for diapers!

Well I picked up some sweet orange EO at whole foods and so far have used it three times!

It smells wonderful, but I notice that it smells great in the wash, but by the time the diapers come out of the washer and then in the dryer they dont smell like it at all any ideas why?

Re: looking for an EO that smells good for diapers!

Just be careful with the sweet orange it is orange in color and can stain I learned that first hand be sure to check oils for color most often the citrus ones are yellow or orange in color. I use mine with vinager and I shake it pretty good and add to the rinse after I have shaken it of course! I have tried many ways but this seems to work best!

Have you tried washing your inserts with Lysol concentrate. It is in the brown bottle. I tried a little bleach with my inserts and had no luck, but used 2 capfulls of the lysol to my load of inserts and the inserts came out smelling great and didnt smell when peed in.

Great suggestion! I have never thought of this, I will check it out. I had some problems with stink not long ago, and finally bleached the heck out of my inserts (not pockets, they got soaked with oxyclean) and now the stink is at bay. I have been washing with a maintenance amount of bleach with every insert wash, maybe like 1/8 cup.
