Can you please help? My inserts still smell slightly like pee when they are done being washed. I use BG AIO's and pockets and Sunbaby pockets with the blend inserts. My wash cycle is every 2 days, cold rinse, hot wash with BG detergent, cold rinse and dry in the dryer. The shells do not have any odor, but the inserts do, especially the Sunbaby inserts. Help!
That happens to me too sometimes. I use RockinGreen and just scoop in some baking soda with it (about 1/4c ) and add vinegar to the bleach or softener cup. No smells. Add an extra rinse if you feel it's warranted. I do this about every 4th and 5th wash or so (that way I get all the diapers, since thee are always some still in the pail).
Ditto more and/or different detergent! I recommend a detergent that contains enzymes. Check out the CD laundry sticky. Microfiber can be difficult to get clean. I have also used vinegar rinses but they are mainly for aiding in rinsing out or neutralizing detergent residues.
I switched detergent and the problem was solved. Rocking Green really does rock! BG detergent sucks for our household! I got some of the Funk Rock too, just in case it happens again. They came out smelling brand spanking new!
