I *think* I've seen posts about soaking the diapers/covers in vinegar?
Maybe you can look in the "diapering archives" at the top and see if it's in there.

I've seen Jess post that you can wash in hot water with 1/4 cup of salt. The salt is supposed to set the color, or something like that. Anyhow when I got my Fuzzi Bunz colors, that no longer own, I did this because the blue was bleeding and this set the color. I've heard that it is bad to soak in vinegar because it is so acidic.

I would email Lori (Firefly) if you haven't already. I bet she'd have a suggestion

Yes, and vinegar does help with colorsteadfastness. However, if you purchased the raspberry new from her, then I would definitely give her a ring/email to find out how you can prevent problems.

Oh, and thanks for the 'FF' description. I'll go add that to our legend in resources!
