We've been using our BumGenius AIO/One Size for well over a year now. We've gone through spurts where they would get stinky (ammonia smell after dd pees) and I'd strip them and they'd be better, but lately I feel like they just aren't getting clean. They have a faint stinky smell when I'm taking them out of the wash and then they smell again when dd pees.<br>
We switch between Charlie's Soap and Arm and Hammer (the natural no additive one). I also put in some Ecover Non Chlorine bleach when I'm trying to strip them. And we normally rinse at least 2-3 times. The past wash I even added some baking soda after the first rinse and rinse again and hung them on the line but still a stink after she pees?!?!<br><br>
What can I do to get the diapers REALLY clean?<br><br>
Also, twice in the past month my dd has gotten a really strange "rash" while wearing her diaper. Her bum will be bright red and yesterday she even had what looked like 2 little water blisters. I'll put her in a disposable after this happens and the rash and blisters will be gone again with a day or less?? Any ideas what could be causing this? This past time she wore a couple diapers from the same laundry batch before it occured so it's not like it happens right away.<br><br>
Thanks!

Sounds like they just aren't getting clean enough... how much soap do you use? I have found I have to use the recommended amount of soap or I get dirty stinkies...

I agree that you may not be using enough soap. I use Charlies as well and found that if I stop the machine on the hot wash with soap (I use the full T) and let it soak for at least a 30 minutes (or whenever you remember to restart it) I have never had stinkies with this routine and I have been doing it for over a yr.<br><br>
Good luck!
