I never know when to strip them, or really how. I *think* my hemp smells like amonia, but I am not sure, LOL. can I just throw them in the wash with some vinegar and do a whole bunch of rinses and then call it a day?
I used Calgon water softener. I have soft water, but my hemp was stinking like ammonia in the morning. So I added the Calgon in with the wash and no more ammonia smell. I guess there was deteregent build up on my dipes!
