Urine-Off or Diaper Pure?

So I am still trying to find ways to get rid of the ammonia smell in my diapers and have come across two products that piqued my curiousity. Has anyone ever used Urine-Off to disolve the ammonia salts left in the diapers? Also, does anyone have any information on a product called Diaper Pure? I have seen reference to it on how to wash cloth diapers, but after doing an internet search cannot seem to find any information. I was so excited about RLR, but it didn't work for us, so on to something else...

I have never heard of either product, but wanted to ask about your washing routine. Have you tried using more detergent yet?

I rinse every dipe before it goes in the pail (just pee ones too) and then have a spray bottle of vinagar that I spray every diaper. Haven't had a smell yet.

Re: Urine-Off or Diaper Pure?

I have not tried to use more detergent, but tried something new last night. I soaked the diapers all night in hot water and OxoBrite (the whole foods version of oxyclean), and then washed normal today with Charlies and added Calgon. They came out smelling good, so I am excited to see if the ammonia smell comes back after she pees. I will keep you all updated, but am still curious to find out about those products.

Re: Urine-Off or Diaper Pure?

Sorry it took me so long to respond with an update, but we moved last weekend. The smell is definitely better, but not completely gone. Once I get things a little more under control I will try a few other things. In the mean time I am still interested if anyone knows anything about these two products.

How much Charlie's are you using? I found I had to use at least 1.5 scoops to a decent size load in order for them to be clean. *I have a FL too*

I've used Urine-Gone (from Wal-Mart) and it smells good but seems to take a lot of it to saturate, and didn't seem to work that well.. hoping for some Bac-Out soon
