I have been using Fuzzibunz diapers for 3 months and they are getting worse and worse everyday. I have been having constant leaks and am not having success with any of the stripping methods that I have found or that the FB support staff have given me. I am frustrated but don't want to throw away the 400 dollars I spent on diapers, plus, I really do want to avoid disposables.
I know we have hard water, but I am not sure how hard. I have done the OxiClean stripping, the Dawn, the baking soda, and just water. I have sun dried, air dried, and dryered them as well.
Does anyone know what else I can do? And if I get them stripped, then how to do I wash them to avoid this build up again?
Any and all success stories are appreciated!
What soap do you use? The best for me with FB was a hot wash with regular Tide (about 1/2 to 3/4 the amount you're supposed to use), then a hot wash with nothing added. Once a month (and I'd do this now if I were you) I'd put a glug of bleach in the first hot wash.
We had a lot of problems CDing until we sucked it up and used the most chemical cleaners/bleach! Then the diapers got clean and my son's skin was happier.
I have been using Arm & Hammer Free...then the FB peep told me to use Oxyclean and Calgon, so I've done that... they also told me to add 2 cap fulls of bleach and I've done that. I have rinsed them in nothing but hot water 10 times and when I test them, they still repel water. Both the fleece and the inserts.
