My question is does anyone know how to strip your cloth diapers? Ellie's are starting to STINK!!The laundry soap I use is a homemade one it is one bar of grated Feths naphtha bar with one cup of borax and one cup of washing soda. HELP PLEASE?


  1. Not a cloth diapering person here, so no clue. Hope you get your answer and get some stink relief.

  2. Do you use that soap for a reason? Is something wrong with her skin. I only remember using Dreft soap on the diapers, but that was such a short time with my first child. I went to pampers after that. I also rinsed the diapers out right away & then put them in the diaper pail waiting to be washed.

  3. I wish I could help, but we were Huggies people. :)

  4. I have never stripped mine and I've been using them for well over a year-they don't stink and they're still white on the insides....but I use regular soap.

  5. Wow it's been a long time. You need to get a diaper soak and be sure to soak them after you wash them out in the toilet. Then use a soak/ pre-wash cycle with a diaper disinfectant. and finally use a a good diaper detergent.
    One thing you can use is a diaper liner for her diaper. Bambino Mio White Cloth diaper liners are sold at target.. It is kinder for the babies' bottom, and save on the soaking off the feces. hope that helps.

  7. Auntie E sounds like she has great info on it. I wish I could help but I've only used disposables.
