problems with cloth training pants smelling bad

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I have been using cloth training pants on my 3 year old neice for a couple of months now, and have noticed that some of them constantly smell like pee, despite washing them several times.  Its mostly the ones that have a waterproof cover to them (Gerber brand).  I have tried soaking them with a little bit of lavender oil, but it hasn't helped.  I always soak the training pants before I wash them, so they don't get a lot of stains on them.

 

Anyone else have this trouble?  What did you do to get them to stop stinking so much after washing?

It might be detergent buildup.  I would recommend some Bac-Out, or some oxygen bleach followed by a wash with nothing but hot water, and perhaps an extra rinse. 

 

Good luck!  Getting rid of that smell can be a tough one!
