All of you who have researched cloth diapers will know that there are so many opinions floating around out there. Some swear by one method, others despise it. The truth is, there is no one right way of cloth diapering. However, there are some no-no’s that most people seem to agree on!
Have you noticed that your nappies have a strong smell when they are wet? The reason for this is very likely to be down to detergent build-up. Detergent and mineral build-up can trap bacteria, causing stink and rashes and might also be affecting the absorbency of your inserts. The issue might become apparent when your baby is teething and their wee starts smelling stronger especially at nighttime when they are in the same nappy for longer. In these cases, we recommend that you do a strip wash.
