Re: fb users i have a questiin

I rarely use pockets anymore. However I have always washed every 2-3 days. My fb have sat in the pail for up to 3 days and I never had any problems with them.

Re: fb users i have a questiin

Mine stink if I don't wash every day. But my pail is always full after about 24 hours anyway.

I wash every other day, but have gone longer between washes and never had a problem with stink in our FB's (knock on wood) hopefully you find out soon what's causing the problem.

Re: fb users i have a questiin

You might try Borax! It's a water softener and helps with stink and stains. There's instructions on the box for washing diapers. In addition, I recommend it for cleaning the shower, sinks, toilets, etc. I'm thinking of cleaning my outside windows with it. My irrigation water leaves a nasty buildup on the windows.

HTH!

Re: fb users i have a questiin

I wash every 2-3 days as well. Stink can becaused by soap buildup. Try an exrtra hot rinse and see if you get bubbles. Good luck!
