  • Try doing a cold rinse first, then wash in your regular cycle. Hang out in the sun to dry. Make sure you haven't dried it in the dryer though, that might keep it in there longer. You can also try stripping it: Even though it's not a cloth diaper, you can still use the methods http://www.zany-zebra.com/stripping-cloth-diapers.shtml

  • I've never had that problem but whenever I can't get the pee smell out of the crib sheets I use baking soda and it's always worked.
