There might not be enough absorbency. Try adding an extra insert or newborn prefold as an insert.
The most success I had with stripping was using EcoSprout. I soaked them overnight in the bathtub in hot water and follow the directions for soaking with EcoSprout (it comes with the bag). Then rinse rinse rinse in my he front loader. The delicate cycle uses the most water.
