I've been using Fuzzi Bunz exclusively since Olivia was born and have not had any problems until recently. Now we are in mediums and all of a sudden this week she's leaking through around the legs after about 1.5 hours??? The ONLY thing that I did differently was washed at my Mom's house last weekend while we were visiting with her ALL laundry soap? I have a front-loading washer and use Tide.

I have no idea if this is what caused the problems...but is there a way I can "strip" these if it is a soap build up? I've seen people say they put them in the dryer on high to "seal" the PUL? I'm scared to do that!

Any insight or advise is appreciated! This is my first post on this forum and I've already spent an hour or so reading threads in different areas!

Yeah, just one wash in the wrong detergent will cause problems for us with our HH. All will do it. Wash them in the kitchen sink by hand with dishwashing liquid, like Dawn or Palmolive or Ivory Ultra. Scrub the fleece against itself or two diapers against each other, let them sit in hot water with the soap on them for an hour or so, then rub and rinse like crazy to get out the soap residue. They should be good to go. You can dry them in a hot dryer safely, but I doubt that's necessary.
