Hi moms!!

 

I've been using wool diaper covers with og cotton prefolds w/ my 6mo boy for about 2 months now.

 

The past few weeks they have become pretty stinky. Anyone have any suggestions or techniques for getting out the stink?

 

Thanks in advance!!

Have you tried an overnight soak in a baby detergent like Rockin Green? Stink builds up over time and most often all our diapers need is a good soak :)

oooh, I don't think I'd be soaking wool in Rockin Green...

 

SGM - what is your wash routine for the wool?
