No, I have never noticed that. How much did you use? I only do about a quarter of a cup to a whole load of diapers. Then I do a couple of warm rinses. I have to do this very infrequently.

I noticed it after the first extra rinse, so now I rinse twice. They just smell clean- no bleach. I use about 1/4 c if I'm doing a full load, an eighth or less if I'm doing a small load of inserts only. I do the regular rinse that comes with the cycle, then two extra rinses. My rinses are cold- don't have a choice.
