I have just started CD's and have used the FB's and Bummies w/prefolds and g diapers with cloth inserts now for about 6 weeks or so. I have just noticed they are coming out of the dryer smelling like pee and poop still, and they seem to be leaking more than before. I do the cold wash no detergent, then at least one hot wash with detergent, and then dry on hot. Using Seventh generation detergent. I just now realize that it only got 2 stars on some of the CD web sites even though it was reccommended on the Bummies paper work as one of the ones to use. Obviously they are not getting clean. As soon as my DD pees then they really start smelling, even like she has pooped in them when she hasn't. I guess we have hard water, not really sure how to tell, but we don't come out of the shower feeling like we still have soap on us. I need to know what is the best way to get the smell off and then keep it off !!!! It is really frustrating because it already seems like I wash diapers all day!!! I also read you can strip them with dawn soap, should I do that? What is the best detergent to use and how can I figure out if I have hard water, soft water, or somewhere inbetween so I can get the right laundry detergent? Where we live I will just have to order the detergent through internet because I haven't seen any of the other kinds anywhere within 60 miles of us.
