DS#3 has the worst smelling diarrhea ever!! I used a little bleach, still stinky, then vinegar, still stinky, then oxiclean, still sticky! I use hot water and soak, but I can still smell that awful poop smell, especially on the pockets, HELP! I will try anything. This happened to me once before with DS#2 and I am pretty sure I eventually went out and got regular dawn and hand scrubbed the dipes, but they no longer make dawn, sigh.
Try stewing them in a big pot of almost-boiling water. Hot water is the trick.
If you are nervous about it, try calling your nearest cloth diaper service - they may run all your stinkies through a special cycle for a small fee. (We do - it works wonders.)
You know, you remind me that once I ran all my diapers (after they were clean) through the dishwasher (something I read here) and really go a lot of stink/build-up out of them. I bet it is the hot water! I am going to do that tonight! Thanks!
