Elliott's dipes smell bad, but only after he pees. They come out of the wash smelling just fine, but when he pees, they smell like ammonia or cat pee sooooo bad. This was only a problem with his Kissaluv dipes. Just in the last week I noticed it with his prefolds too. So I went online and found the recommendation to strip them.
So yesterday I washed all the dipes as usual with an extra rinse. Then I did a wash with some dish detergent, then washed again and then rinsed two more times. Then I hung them outside to dry. The smell is WORSE. Even though they smelled very clean off the line, the prefold I just changed smelled as bad as the Kissaluvs usually did.
So what's my next step? Vinegar?
I had been using Sensi-Clean detergent, but now use Charlie's. My washer only has these settings: hot/cold, warm/cold, warm/warm, and cold/cold. I have always just washed them on hot/cold with an extra rinse and hung them outside. No problems.
Help! Elliott's butt smells like cat pee!!!
