I have a cloth diaper question and was hoping I could get some ideas from any of you who have used cloth diapers...
I've been using cloth diapers for the last 15 months on my son, and so far have been really happy with it.
I use homemade pocket cloth diapers - I made them myself from PUL & Organic Cotton Flannel for the diaper and then I have a 3 layer soaker of organic cotton/bamboo terry (thin layer), organic cotton terry (thick like a bath towel), & another layer of organic cotton/bamboo terry.
I do the dry bucket method for dirty diapers and wash every other day to 3 days - unless something comes up and I'm not able to wash as frequently.
I double wash all my loads of diapers with Tropical Traditions Laundry Detergent with a booster of their Oxygen Bleach (NOTE - Tropical Traditions is having FREE shipping until the 21st!!!) - first wash as an express wash and the second as a whites load. I prefer to hang dry the diapers outside but it's been too cold lately and I've had to place them in the dryer. :( I don't have any other way of drying them inside.
So, my question is - My diapers still have a smell (not a horribly bad smell but a unpleasant one) after they have been washed and dried. No matter how much I wash and soak them I can't get them to stop having this smell. They don't need to be stripped as the detergents I've used on them have never built up.
Any suggestions?? What are things I can do to get the smell out of them? Naturally using Non-Toxic methods.
Thanks so much for your thoughts! :)
