I am having bad ammonia problems. The babe has a lot of burns on her skin from the ammonia and the diapers stink. I just moved and now I have a high efficiency machine. I used to use a top loader and now my diapers are stinky and burn the babe's skin. I have an old HE washing machine. So, all I have is the ability to change temp and cycle length. I don't have a soak or rinse option and I can't increase the amount of soil. I do have an extra rinse option, which I use. I have not found a good routine yet.
Right now I use country save detergant. I do two short cycles, one cold and one hot, both with detergant(about 1 TBSP). I tried to strip them with vinegar (I turned the hot water heater all the way up) and it worked but I don't want to do that all the time. I also tried adding more water manually to the wash and that hasn't helped. I tried oxiclean in the hot cycle, I used about 1/4 cup (plus and extra wash cycle). That didn't help too much. Plus I hear you're not supposed to use too much oxiclean with Country Save detergant.
I bought some Bac-Out. I don't have the spray bottle. I'm not quite sure how much to use or exactly how to use it. I may try 1/4 cup in the cold wash. Any suggestions??
The other thing I haven't tried is RLR.
