We recently resolved a heavy duty ammonia/funk problem with lots of boiling and stripping - yay!
But now, every time I take a wet diaper off the baby it smells like bleach. BUT WE NEVER USE BLEACH! What in the world is going on???
We have switched to pre-folds only, with PUL covers.
Our wash routine is as follows:
2 cold rinses
Heavy duty wash in hot water with 1TBS homemade detergent (1C washing soda + 1C borax + 1 grater bar Dr. B's lavender) and a squirt of Bio-Kleen
4 cold rinses
We wash every day and now that the weather has turned cold and rainy, dry in the dryer.
Anyone experienced this? My hunch is that there is a reaction happening with Borax residue, but... who knows?!
Thanks in advance for any help you can offer!
