Wicked ammonia stink with AIO's...help!

I am starting to hate these.

I have done all the "usual" stuff (stripping, etc.) but nothing seems to work. Horriffic. I hate them. 

Help?

  • What is your wash routine and how did you try stripping them?  Did you try RLR?

    Yep. I tried blue dawn, I practically boiled them, RLR, calgon, rinsed them within an inch of their lives, etc.

  • Wow.  Then I'm stumped.  Maybe Tide?

  • I like white vinegar. The first time I used it we had stink and I let them soak in the vinegar pre-wash all night. Totally worked.
  • You need to neutralize the ammonia salts so try either a plain white vinegar soak or a vinegar and oxyclean soak.  You'll need enough vinegar to cover the diapers (I do in a washtub) and then 1 scoop of oxyclean per gallon of vinegar used.  Let soak for at least 6 hours then hand rinse, and then do one plain hot wash to rinse further. 

    I'm guessing these have microfiber?
