Alright, how about we post up some tips we might have stumbled across for cleaning our cloth diapers...Or just our cleaning routine. I'm sure we'd all appreciate some tips :-)

I'm about to strip my cloth diapers with vinegar...they've started to smell a bit even after a really good washing, so I'm hoping that washing them after adding a little vinegar might help.

For stains, there's just nothing like sunshine. Another Mama told me about that, and I didn't believe her. Here I am months later, and I just throw any stained diapers out on a clothesline for a few hours.

For pocket diapers or AIOs, I really believe that you've got to get them in the wash as soon as you possibly can have a big enough load. Otherwise, I swear they hold onto that stink a little too long.

How much vinegar do you use? Do you do a whole cycle with it? Just a rinse?

My routine is to do a cold rinse then wash hot with Maggie's Soapnuts. We've been cloth diapering for about 5 months now and have no smelly issues! I'm interested in how others do it, too!

When my son was a baby, I used a few drops of tea tree oil in the wash. I only used vinegar about once a week.

I live by Original Blue Dawn for stripping.

Also don't use fabric softeners or bleach.

I've been cloth diapering for almost 5 years now.

I agree to the sunshine! It really bleaches the stain away. For me (and don't be too shocked) nothing has worked quite as well regular Tide. I know. It is crazy. I have hard well water out here in the country and every "cloth diaper friendly" detergent leaves my dipes smelling like ammonia. Even with calgon. But with Tide I get stink free diapers. I want to try soap nuts, but I am afraid of the same thing happening.
