    I bought these wonderful diaper inserts from a lady on a swap group that i had found. they smell awful once the kids pee in them. I have tried about 20 hot washes since we got them, and baking soda, special hunting laundry soap, boiling, all with no luck.. the lady says they were fine when she used them and the other people she sold them to never said anything about them. I don't know what to do. We spent 190 dollars on all of these. ANY IDEAS NEEDED!!!
    Thanks in advance, I hope i can fix them.

    Lots of people run into this with hemp eventually. Apparently it is detergent buildup. Just make sure to use 1/2 the amount you would for regular laundry. Adding vinegar would probably help, I use it to remove all kinds of buildup.

    Here 's a good article about washing hemp dipes.

    Also I did a search for stinky hemp at mothering and there are many ideas here.
