We have several Sustainable Babyish Bamboo doublers. Recently, we figured out that they were the cause of some serious nighttime stink. They smell perfectly fine after washing and drying. 


Should I try the Dawn method with bamboo? We did that to our Fuzzibunz and it seemed effective. Of course, the real problem may have been only the doublers......

I am not familiar with your specific doublers, so please don't do this if it goes directly against the manufacturer's recommendations.  That said, I boil my inserts and hemp prefolds that we use overnight when they start smelling.  I boil them for about 15 minutes.

I just boiled our hemp inserts for about 12 minutes (I got impatient, lol) and it worked really well. Previously I had tried the Dawn method, and it worked on my regular MF inserts, but the hemp still smelled really bad (at night... of course). I agree with PP that you should find out from SBish if you can boil them. Heck, they might even have a different solution to offer!
