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

so I am totally laughing while reading this. It sounds like all you mommas are having so much fun and I want in on the action. To tell you the truth I have a buttload of inserts that are smelly and stained and can't wait to get home tonight and try this out. I have been trying vinegar soaks and oxyclean soaks for the past couple of days but never considered combining the two. Thankfully I have Costco sized containers of both vinegar and oxyclean so this should be fun. he he

I'm so going to ask DH to pick up some OxyClean on his way home tonight. 2 months of being a newbie mom/newbie CDer has left the stash with quite a few funkified artifacts. Can't remember when I was this excited to do laundry!

I want to try this with my DS's mattress cover. It is one of those waterproof ones that have a terry cloth top and it is super stained and nothing I do makes it better....now I have a new action plan! I didn't want to buy a new one, hopefully this saves it!! Thanks mama's!

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

Wow, now I have a new project for this coming weekend.

How many times are you ladies washing your inserts and prefolds after performing this diaper science project?

Has anyone's LO had a reaction once the newly cleaned items were put back into the CD rotation?

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

I have used OxiClean (the big box from Costco) for doing all my laundry for quite some time. When I first started cd'ing my diapers were smelling, but not after I used less. I use about 1/8 c. to do a full load (front loader) and it works great. I have issues with the hemp inserts still smelling and making the rest of the laundry stink too, so I'll have to try adding vinegar in the wash too. How much should I use and do I put it in the laundry soap spot of bleach spot?
