Hi,
I have a few Fuzzi Bunz and I've had them for almost a year.
Now, my question is can you boil these to strip them?? I was'nt sure cause of the PUL outer on them. I currently do a presoak in cold water with tea tree oil soap followed by a wash cycle in hot water and a little more of the tea tree oil soap and a pinch of Purex for babies.

The FB's currently smell like they have been sitting in poop(gross) they smell after they have been washed and after they are dried too!!!

Help!

I'm not an expert, but I don't think you can boil FB's b/c of the snaps. I also think boiling may be bad for the waterproofing ability of the PUL. Anyone else got an idea?

Turn your water heater up as high as it will go and wash them. Hopefully that will help.

I find that in addition to turning my water heater up as high as it will go( Jenny), a nice long soak in that hot water with a squirt of Dawn and about 1/2 cup baking soda helps a lot with FB fleece stink. I think the Dawn helps remove buildup without scrubbing though scrubbing works too, I like to try the lazy way first.
