I had been looking at blueberry diapers, and found someone selling two for a good deal and decided to give them a shot. Well, when I got them I about fell over when I opened the package. It reeked of a strong detergent. It smelled like someone had soaked them in a really strong laundry detergent or something. Even DH who doesnt have a good sense of smell thought it was bad. So I washed them, and washed them, and washed them. They still smelled. SO I decided to try them on Lorelei and right afterward she got her first diaper rash. I assume from the perfumes still in the diaper. I have washed them both numerous times, and still cant get the smell out. They are such cute diapers too. I use baking soda and vinegar in my washes, so I assumed that wouldve helped. But it hasnt. Now I have these two adorable diapers that I cant even use. Any suggestions?

You could try RLR Laundry Treatment, it removes mineral and detergent residue. You can sometimes find it in the laundry aisle of some marts and grocery's - it looks like this and would be hanging up

Also you could try soaking them in baking soda, maybe even overnight. Make sure you rinse with vinegar to restore the pH though.
Good luck!

I just had a problem with leaking so I did a bunch of research on a bunch of different sites and found out you can use one scoop of oxy clean as long as you then wash with regular detergent and do lots of rinses. I haven't tried it, because switching detergents and stripping worked, but now Griffin also has his first bad diaper rash, he almost looks blistered! I'm not sure if it's the Tide or the teething! By the way, where did you get the good deal? I have a bit of an obsession with looking for/buying cloth diapers.

I got them on Craigslist. I will see if I can find that RLR treatment.
