When the diapers are clean, they smell like nothing at all. And when dd wets in them, they don't stink, so I don't think they need to be stripped. They don't stink on dd. Well, when she poops it stinks, but like it should, not like incredibly horrible stinking. When we get a poopy dipe I shake the solids into the toilet and dunk if necessary (usually not needed), then throw it in the bag. The stinking gets really bad at the end of the day, when diapers from all day are in there. My bummis bag is a wet bag, meant to be a pail liner or hanging bag. I think the bag is the problem. I think it's getting too old and is no longer waterproof. It's been washed with the diapers every other day in hot water for about a year. I hang it to dry, but still, all that hot water has probably killed its ability to hold stinkies inside. I've been cding for a year and half and this problem just started. I guess its time for a new bag. Thanks for your input, mamas!
