Stink Stripping Washing

The Last Resort


My last resort to fix these stinky diapers was going to be bleach.  I don’t have the dislike of bleach that some others do, but it was my last resort nonetheless.
Worked like a charm.  I bleached only the inserts, since bleach can damage PUL, and I only used a few tablespoons in the washer’s bleach dispenser.
The diapers are good as new.  PHEW!  I only wish I had tried it sooner.  From now on, I’ll bleach at the first sign of stink!
I washed my new ones separately so the stink wouldn’t spread.  My new ones aren’t really bleachable, so hopefully they won’t get stinky.  They don’t have microfiber, so I don’t expect them to!

    >Bleach to the rescue. I like bleach for some things, but not everything. At least it's cheap 🙂
