getting urine smell out of clothes

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ok, so that seems like agross title but don't know how to phrase it subtley. My dd sometimes has accidents at night and her urine smell on her jams and unders is herendous. I have been pushing liquids fearing a lack of fluids was to blame, but can't get the smell out. I've tried baking soda and vinegar in the wash but it hasn't done the trick. any suggestions? I also hang dry our clothes most of the time and that doesn't seem to help any.

Try washing the clothes with soap and then washing them again with no soap. The soap usually does not completely rinse out in the first wash and the soap holds in the smell. I do this with my DD cloth under pants. I wash once in cold with soap and then again in cold no soap. With cloth diapers I did 1st wash: full soap on cold, 2nd wash: 1/2 soap on warm, 3rd wash: no soap on hot.

I would probably try rinsing them really well in cool water and then soaking them in a bucket with a good amt of vinegar (several cups) and water. Maybe even rubbing in some blue dawn before soaking (overnight) and then wash as usual.

Another thing you might try is Biz in your regular wash or soaking in a bucket with some lukewarm water and biz (I'd soak overnight) and wash as usual.

I would try to wash in the hottest water you can for the type of fabrics you're washing.
