Strip-washing diapers

Diapers sometimes need to be stripped in order to remove the residue left on the fleece by detergents and/or softener.

Fill a sink with hot water and add in some dish washing detergent. Hand wash your diapers, rubbing the fleece vigorously together or use a medium bristle dish brush or hard bristle tooth brush to scrub the fleece. Turn inside out and repeat on this side. Rinse very good, making sure that the water runs clear. To make double sure all the detergent has been rinsed out, we recommend washing them again in the washing machine WITHOUT any detergent.

It's best if you do not return to using the same detergent that caused the problem.
