I'm new to this forum and am still figuring out how to use it, so I'm just going to jump in here rather than figuring out how to start a new thread. Sorry in advance if this isn't normal...
I have fuzzi bunz diapers and an HE washer. The two combined seem to be causing problems. I've had lots of repelling issues, due to (I assume) soap build up/residue in the diapers. When I do the "nasal aspirator" test, the water I squirt on the clean diapers just SITS. It doesn't absorb well AT ALL. I'm really at a loss.
I have "stripped" the diapers according to the fuzzi bunz website directions. I have purchased oxiclean versatile powder (per a diaper co recommendation) and washed the diapers in that. When I launder them, I do a cold rinse, hot wash w/ TEENY bit of Charlie's Soap (so little, sometimes they smell like sewage still), 2 cold rinses. Lately, I've also started doing a plain hot wash and cold rinse after that in an attempt to really rinse them.
Any recommendations? Am I fighting a losing battle? Do fuzzi bunz and HE washers just not work together?
