I just put my diapers in the mixture to soak overnight. We will see how they turn out. I'm thinking about using this on our dingy hand towels, and some of DD's really stained clothing.

Re: OxyClean + Vinegar -----> WOWSA!!

Hi, I just wanted to say thank you to the OP! This got rid of our stinkies and even brightened my dipes and lessened some stains. I have used this on inserts, fitteds and pockets. I'm sure it will likely shorten the life of a diaper but gosh who wants a diaper that lasts longer if it's gross? I have been so sick of these diapers that come straight out of the washer/dryer still smelling bad and had searched high and low for a solution. Thank you, thank you, seriously thank you .

Re: OxyClean + Vinegar -----> WOWSA!!

Anyone try this on OBV? I am having problems with my DS diapers. He only uses them at night and they are every morning. I just can't get the smell out either. DD diapers are fine. No smell at all. I just can't figure it out as they are all washed in the same loads.
I just don't want to ruin the silkyness.

I had a prefold that is bamboo velour. It doesn't snappi well, so I'm pretty sure that's the material? It held up fine through the soak and I haven't had any problems with it. Still nice and soft--I really need to get more of those off of FSOT!

So I just hung them out to dry. I did it as a prewash for a whole load of diapers. I filled the washer with enough water to cover the diapers and then added 2 cups of vinegar and 2 scoops of oxy clean, and let them soak overnight. Then I did my normal wash routine. My AIOs still have some odor, so I might have to do them separately, but the rest smell wonderful!

Re: OxyClean + Vinegar -----> WOWSA!!

Thank you for starting this thread and responding to my question! I am going to try this then. I suppose I don't have much to lose anyway as they stink so bad! Just noticed your siggy. Doing it on my own here too! 5 months down, 7 more to go! Hope all is going well for you. Sending you good thoughts.

Yep, today was our 5 month mark as well! It's been tough, but we'll get through it. Hang in there!
