So I have been cloth diapering my son for about 8 months. I switched him because he was breaking out from disposables. I use the Flip system (hybrid) and I'm getting really irritated with them! I love the way they work, they fit nice, they don't leak there very easy that way. But I can't get the stink out of them! I have tried what I think is everything... changed detergent from bumgenious to thirsties super wash. I have tried adding vinegar, baking soda, and Rockin green ammonia bounce to my washes. I have soaked them in as hot a water as I could get with Dawn blue dish soap rinsed each one (by hand) and then rinsed them several (6-8) times in the washer. And now not only do my liners stink but the covers are holding alot of nasty smell now also.. I can only use the cover once before it stinks so bad I have to wash it.
I am so prepared to try huggies pure and natural disposables and hope to god whatever it was that was making him breakout is gone... wishful thinking I guess.
So I guess what I'm wondering is if anyone has any suggestions... I have devoted alot of hours trying to make these diapers smell better and am willing to try a few more things before I throw in the towel.
