say no to stinky diapers, please! :)

IF YOU HAVE STINK WHEN YOU TAKE THE DIAPERS OUT OF THE DRYER, THEY ARE NOT CLEAN, AND YOU NEED TO EMAIL ME TO FIX THIS!!!

Don’t, don’t, don’t put up with stink in an effort to use a natural detergent. Stink=old poop and old pee. If you took your underwear out of the dryer and it smelled like a frat house urinal, would you wear it? You don’t want them being re-wet, put back in a pail to stew for 24-48 hours, semi-washed again and then put back against your baby’s genitals. Please, email me at AbbysLane@aol.com…. Sometimes you have to disinfect the diapers. I know the green mamas and dads out there will recoil at the thought of Clorox, but you just don’t want to play games with this, stink isn’t good, and you don’t have to deal with it. I promise we can find a solution that is easy and will work, just email me!
The common theme=too little detergent. There are very few of you who can wash with a tablespoon of detergent. This includes the factors of a front loader, very VERY soft water, and a unique mineral balance that doesn’t like to hang onto diaper gunk. Most of you need close to if not right on (or-gasp-more) of the recommended amount on the detergent scoop. First thing you try with stink, if you are really skimping on detergent, add more of it. If that doesn’t work, then email me, but it can be an easy fix for lots of you. Many of you are terrified of “buildup”. I promise, 8 times out of 10, stink is not buildup, it is not enough detergent. Buildup is easy to fix, it isn’t the end of the world, short of putting diapers in the paper shredder you can’t really “not fix” any washing issues. So really, email me with your washing problems, don’t put up with stink!

    I’d like to add that if your washer isn’t spinning out well, it can make it much harder for your clothes (especially diapers) to get clean.

    Thank you for helping me this week!! I am so glad I emailed you. I used Tide Powder and none of my diapers stink in the slightest. Evie is showing no signs of sensitivity to the Lavender kind. Also, my microfiber is way more absorbent. We used both TT inserts last night and after 8 hours she had no leaks!
