CD problem

I was going to post in cuties with cloth booties, but apparently I was removed at some point? No clue why...

Any idea why my diapers are just not getting clean all of a sudden? I use bumgenius and the inserts are coming out stained. I have never had a problem before a couple weeks ago. I have not changed the way I wash them, so I'm really confused. I wash them every other day. I do a cold soak, hot wash and hot rinse. Do I seriously need to start washing them every single day??

I don't think you need to wash them everyday. I think it's pretty normal for this to happen. I tend to strip mine every month or as needed

Are they just stained or not working right? Stains happen. If they're not absorbent as they should be, you can try boiling the inserts.

Just stained, so far. I was just confused, because I've never had that problem before. Poo always came out, no problem. Now the inserts are coming out all splotched. I guess as long as it's working fine and doesn't smell, I'll try not to worry about it. I'm just anal and it really bothers me that they're not bright white anymore, lol.

Haha, yeah the brightness doesn't last long. You could try drying them in the sun, best stain remover/brightener there is!

Yeah I boil mine. It's the best way to get rid of buildup

I don't do soaks. It seems to make the stains worse

You could try a couple of extra washes without soap to see if that will take any buildup away. Sometimes my bg's get stained when my LO eats things like a lot of blueberries. The stain usually goes away after a few washes.
