I feel like I have tried everything, but I'm still getting A LOT of ammonia smell in my son's dipes. here is what I've tried:<br><br>
Cold soak or rinse, hot wash with tide or charlie's soap. I've tried adding vinegar to the rinse, calgon with the wash, and oxy-clean. Nothing seems to have worked. I tried washing twice and rinsing twice. I don't ahve extra suds, so I know I don't have detergent build-up. i have well water which isn't the hard, but we have a lot of iron. I'm thinking that is the problem. I don't want to get a water softener because they are expensive and the taste of the water is wonderful I wouldn't want to change it.<br><br>
Does anyone know of something I've missed? I use pockets and fitteds so I don't want to use any bleach. The smell is unbeareable when i do a load. I have to literally trun my head away and hold my breath <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> !!<br><br>

Oh, yes I can relate and after trying many, many things (including stripping my cloth diapers) I've come to think it's just strong urine. Now that I'm diapering two, I wash every other day and I'm putting DS (2 1/2) in a disposable at night because of how much he wets at night. When I was pregnant with DD, I would gag just trying to load them in the machine.<br><br>
Are they fleece diapers? I've heard those retain smells more. Also, I quite using vinegar because it seemed to make it worse.<br><br>
Sorry, I don't have any other suggestions other than trying a different detergent (I use Bio-Klean) and washing as often as you can stand to.
