Try washing or rinse cycling your clean diapers on hot. You will see bubbles (the detergent residue). Keep running cycles until there are no more bubbles.
If they are in need of more, you can add a teaspoon of original blue dawn and then rinse, rinse, rinse until the bubbles are gone.
If you are having to strip frequently, you need to change you routine, and most likely your detergent.
