Thumbs down WTH ammonia back after wearing once

I posted last week about poor dd having a bad ammonia burn on her everywhere ffrom her nighttime BG. I stripped with bac-out and dawn and to no avail this AM she has another burn,. not as bad, but still. who wants to get burned every freakin night??
So, needless to say, I am passing these puppies on, but I certainly don't want whoever gets them to get this problem. Any ideas? Bac-out soak? Oxiclean soak?I guess I will buy some vinegar as well today. I appreciate any advice or thoughts y'all can give me!!

Give them a good vinegar soak and wash with diluted bleach. Add the bleach to a full washer and then your dipes and inserts. The Vinegar should neutralize the ammonia salts and the bleach will kill any left over ickies.

I second the vinegar, works great! I'm washing dipes with it right now.

I very regularly (every couple of weeks) bleach my BG inserts.... otherwise we get the same issue... I've also foudn that they aren't the best for nighttime anymore... as she needs breathable fibers for that long of a period... we use our BG as our out and about or need a trimmer diaper for an outfit. Now we use GM's w/ extra layers w/ wool or fleece at night... works GREAT!!
