Background- I'm a third (more?) generation cd'er. My daughter has been cd'ed for about 15 of her 18 months. My mil uses sposies when she watches dd. We use prefolds and bummis old faithful snap cover. I use rockin' green, and occasionally a smidge of vinegar when washing. We sun when possible, but it's been a pretty gray winter and wet spring... sigh. I do a cold rinse and a hot wash for about 1-1.5 hours.
I find that often when my dd is in cloth for several days straght (like the weekend when I'm home), her butt will get red, but not with sposies. I try to change her frequently, and use fleece liners. I strip my dipes about every other month lately with dawn and hot water in my mother's top loader. I just wanted to know if this is something other people have encountered. There's little to no rash with sposies or a combo of cd and sposies. Sometimes they get a little stinky, hence the stripping.
on a related note, does northern essence sensitive skin cause build up? We don't use it very frequently.
It's just very frustrating, because I think that my MIL doesn't want to use cloth because dd's butt can get so red!

When you strip in the top loader do you do a cycle before you add soap to see if you do have residue? I would do that out of curiosity if nothing else. It could be a bacteria in the diapers or the buildup or a intolerance to your detergent.

I would run them through a couple hot cycles with no soap checking for suds each time. Depending on the results from that I would use a different detergent even if you just borrow a small amount from who ever you can to see if that helps. If all else failed I would try a small amount of bleach.

In cloth, my daughter got rashes only when she was left in a wet diaper for any length of time. I'd recommend going without the liners, using cotton bloomers instead of covers, and change her as soon as she pees, with a few minutes to air out before the new diaper goes on.

Good idea, we go coverless a lot! Then it is easy to realize she has peed and get her in a dry diaper.
