Re: Thank you to whomever suggested a vinegar soak for getting rid of ammonia salts!!

Did you soak them dirty, right out of the pail? Or like a stripping, with clean dipes?

Will this work on fitteds and AIOs as well? I have some smell issues going on with them.

I did! I just added the vinegar to my cold soak that I do before washing. I put 3-4 cups vinegar in my machine, and added my dirty diapers, let soak for a couple hours, then followed my normal wash routine (cold rinse, hot wash w/ cold rinse, extra cold rinse)

At first I used this just on my inserts, but my pockets and 3 of my fitteds have stink issues, so the next time (and every time since) I've thrown it all in there! I don't have an AIO's so I can't answer for those

Yes, I did (and do). I just separate my inserts from the rest if I know I need a soak and soak them separately. After the wash, I throw everything else in and do the regular prerinse, wash, rinse cycle.

You can and I have, I just don't do that often since I am scared the vinegar will mess up the elastic if I do it too much that is why I just do the mf and other inserts. I have soaked DS's blueberry trainers with no issues but it was just once so far.

I just wanted to mention, vinegar works amazingly well, but you have to be careful because it is bad for elastics if used in large amounts. It's great if used every once in awhile though!

I would like to try this on my BG inserts because we have horrible ammonia....but I've heard vinegar is bad to use in hard water. We have "moderately" hard water....will the vinegar help or make things worse??

Yeah, I know. That is why we are talking about inserts. I do use a small amount of vinegar in my regular wash but I made sure to write that I wouldn't do it often to anything with pul or elastic. I did soak DS's blueberry trainers but so far just once. Vinegar imo is like bleach with elastic and pul. Use sparingly or take the risk with the elastic or pul, kwim.
