I love love love my wipe warmer, but I havent been using it as much now that bubby is older and doesnt "go" as often. So, we went on a trip for a week and I left it plugged in and the little sponge thing dried out and now smells like mildew. I threw it in the washer with the diapers but it still smells. I really want to use it again, can someone help? I am going to try to dose it in vinegar and let it air dry, hopefully that will help. any other ideas wise mamas?

i just looked it up, they have replacement sponges that you are supposed to replace after 3 months. Mine started stinkin after 5 months of use, so that is probably the main issue. Glad I looked into it, I was bummin about the warmer. I have to say that the warmer and my cloth wipes are one of my most favorite baby items.
