I bought a stinky diaper!

I know there is a thread out there about this but I can't find it.

I bought a used diaper in euc. but it STINKS like ammonia!! I smelled it right out of the bag it shipped in. I washed it with a small load of my regular diapers with bac out in the pre-rinse, extra hot water wash with extra detergent (i use country save) and a squirt of gse, and 2 warm water rinses. It's out of the dryer now and still stinks. I've never had a single stinky diaper. What can i do to rid this one diaper of it's funk??

Boil it & if that doesn't work then boil it in vinegar

Thanks for responding!

It's a fitted diaper with snaps and elastic. Is it ok to boil it?

Eh, I wouldn't boil it. I'd try the 'ol vinegar plus oxyclean soak (there's a thread about the awesome chemical reaction here somewhere...) then wash it in a mainstream detergent once or twice (like Tide or Gain, something WITH enzymes) until it's not funky anymore, then wash as usual with the rest of your stash.

Soak overnight in bac out! Bac out works wonders for us

Re: I bought a stinky diaper!

Thanks for the advice mamas. I'm out of oxy so I'm soaking overnight in bac-out and a lot of country save. Hopefully that will do it. If not then I'll get some oxy tomorrow.

Re: I bought a stinky diaper!

I personally would boil it too! just do it for 10 mins and make sure the snaps don't touch the sides of the pot! I've done it many times!

I got a diaper like this. I soaked it for a couple bouts in bac-out and then washed with bleach, I did this 2 times and the stink was gone.
