Clothes from dryer smelling like urine

DS is working on night training, he's four and a half, and I hear it's harder for boys. He doesn't have day accidents, and it's fifty fifty at night. Anyway, he had an accident, I washed the sheets and some other clothes together in the hot hot cycle they were dried in the hot cycle too. When I removed the clothes, they still smelled mildly of urine. I use hypoallergenic detergent and no dryer sheets.  Any thoughts?

I plan to, but why wouldn't one wash get them clean? Am I doing something wrong?

Quoting SASSYCJB: run them again.

 When my DS diaper leaks with poop or pee, I add about 1/2 cup of baking soda to the wash . I start the cycle and let it agitate a couple seconds to mix the detergent and baking soda. Then I stop the cycle and let clothes soak for 10-15 minutes in warm water before starting again. I also do a second rinse cycle with a cup of vinegar. Also, some people use Borax, instead of baking soda. I think it a type of laundry booster.

I know it's hard to get rid of urine smell, because of the enzymes.

Thanks for the tip. I have no problem even running them again, I just wasn't sure if it was something I was doing wrong.

I put in as much vinegar as you would fabric softener.

A soak in vinegar/baking soda should do the trick. Just like PPs said. Soak 'em for a bit, then run again. and uggh this makes me so glad all 4 of mine were trained by 2. EXTRA laundry makes me crazy.

Vinegar also acts as a natural fabric softener...it's REALLY great for laundry!
