My diapers are smelling bad again and I know it's detergent built up. What's the best way to strip the diapers and get rid of built up detergent so they don't smell so bad? (These are pocket diapers with PUL on the outside and fleece inside)
Nothing (stripping methods) that I've tried in the past felt like it made a big difference. I'm very reluctant to apply heat (such as hot water) because I it seems to do a lot of damage to the elastic on these pocket diaper covers (not just the elastics along the legs but also the elasticity of the overall fabric). And running rinse cycles in plain water has literally taken me 20 cycles before i saw decreased soap on top of the water. What methods do you recommend? What has worked for you in the past?
