If you have hard water, RLR is pure magic for getting rid of stinkies. Adding a small amount of bleach to the wash periodically is also a good way to get rid of the stinkies. As much as I hate to use bleach, sometimes it is the only thing that kills the funk.
If it's a sewage sort of smell (if that makes sense!), boiling was what worked for us. The diapers have been like new ever since.<br><br>
I tried a lot of other things before I did that... now I just wish I'd done that sooner. Easy and cheap! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
They smell awful in the pail, when I open it to wash them the smell makes my eyes water. I keep trying diff things and they dont stink when they're wet in the washer so I think maybe they're good, but once out of the dryer it's like a funky... dont know how to describe, they smell like something that's been pooed on many times ...<br>
Ive tried bac out, vinegar, soap nuts, hot wash after hot wash and rinse after rinse...<br>
about to try boiling, Ive heard a lot of people say that works.
Seriously, just add a quarter cup or less of bleach to your wash and rinse an extra time. It's cheap, easy, and works on most funkiness. While bleach is not good to use all of the time, a little now and then will kill any residual bacteria that may be funking up your diapers.
