Hello All,

I know this topic has been beaten to death, but I still have a couple of questions.

Here's the situation:
- we have hard water.
- we only use Bumkins AIOs, LL AIOs and 1 Prorap AIO.
- we use hemp inserts with the LL AIOs.
- we rinse once with cold water, no detergent, wash on hot with either Costco detergent or Sportwash. Then we rinse on hot again. Use very little detergent. Less than 1 tablespoon, I would say.

Questions:
How do I get the smell out of AIOs. Can I use vinegar on them? Should I be using more detergent?

Thanks,
Nicole

It's probably the hemp that is causing the stink, not to mention the hard water doesn't help. I also have hard water and was having stink problems and here's what I figured out (w/the help of some very nice mamas!):

Wash on hot with 1/2 cap of detergent (you'll need to use more since you have hard water), 1/2 cup of baking soda, and put some vinegar in a Downy Ball. That's it! It took care of my stink problem the very first time and I didn't have to do any extra rinses at all.

HTH
