You may need more/less detergent, an extra rinse, etc. You can also try line-drying/sunning and then popping in the dryer to fluff. Also, until the rash is gone, you may want to do some naked time or use fitteds without covers for breathe-ability.
honestly, i dont think its the detergent. i have been through several brands now and with the charlies we used it since she was born with no reactions and then all of the sudden there is rash.

Ive normally kept it open, occasionally i will set the lid on top but it is not sealed on. either way same problem

Sometime when my old towels smell musty or like now when I am raising a litter of 9 puppies I use vinegar in the wash and it safe and the smell is gone. I use a homemade detergent of borax, baking soda super wash and fels naptha, I ad the vinegar where the fabric softener goes. Works for the smell, safe for the baby. Also here is some info from another mom that has a diaper rash problem...

i thought of vinegar because i use it on towels for this same reason. Bumgenius recommends against it though
