I’m still here, and I’m still rinsing diapers!
I got my RLR laundry treatment. I can’t keep my kiddo in disposables, even a few hours leaves his hiney with raised, red welts. So I bought two packets and washed the diapers in two batches. Then I rinsed, rinsed and rinsed some more.
The result was noticeable. I still smelled ammonia after the diaper was wet, but I actually had to sniff it. Before that, I could tell the diaper was wet because my eyes would start watering while I was holding him!
Encouraged, I ordered more RLR. Someone pointed me to Banana Peels Diapers. They have a great price on the RLR. I was able to order 16 packets at $1.50 each and shipping was only $2.50.
While waiting for it to arrive, I continued to rinse like crazy. Every time I had a diaper to wash, I threw it in the washer instead of the wet bag. Each time I added a diaper, I ran a cycle on the washer. If there was time between a cycle ending and the next diaper addition, I ran a cycle with no detergent.
I got the RLR today. I washed the diapers and inserts and hung the diapers to dry. I put the inserts in the washer with a whole packet of RLR and added boiling water.
I got quite a few other goodies today and I am washing them separately!! So watch out for some posts over the next week or so!
