Dingy, stinky, microfiber inserts...UGH!

I bought a whole bunch of mf inserts that were supposed to be EUC...well when they arrive they are pretty dingy and seem to be holding stinkies in them. I've been using them anyways because I am desperate for inserts and had no other choice. Well, I've stripped them (washed them 10+ times in a row until I saw no bubbles, and even used a bit of bleah) but the next time they are worn then washed, they are STINKY again! I just don't know what to do! I use the Bio-Kleen All Purpose Cleaner and Bac out if that helps at all. Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Or should I just suck it up and buy NEW inserts?

Bleach them... just the microfiber, not all your diapers. I used about a cup of bleach in a hot wash and let it soak for a good hour, then did a wash cycle with it, then a second washcycle w a bit of detergent to get rid of the bleach smell.

eta: I am not a bleach user usually and had to make a special trip to the store, but I am glad I did!

I actually stopped using mf because it was a battle to get rid of the stink, then it would be gone for a few days, then back again. I just use cotton or bamboo now.
