Hey everyone! I just posted this but figured I'd ask here, too.




We used Desitin and Lotrimin for a yeast rash recently. I used baby wash cloths as liners. They must have worked because there is no smell and no issues with our diapers, but the washcloths smell horrible, like fish. I even washed them twice with blue Dawn and bleach. I'm ready to toss them and buy new ones, but I want to give them one more try. Would soaking in vinegar over night help? Any tips?

Boil them. They smell because of the cod liver oil, which doesn't melt at a low enough temp to come off in the washer.

Should I put anything in the water to boil them in? How long do I boil them for?

I'm not sure haha. Maybe try a little blue dawn and check every 5 minutes to see if they're clean?

Thanks, I'll try that. They stink so bad. The doctor told me Desitin, but I'll just get a cloth diaper safe alternative from now on. Washing liners separately sucks, too.

Question about boiling..



I've got some bamboo inserts boiling at the moment.. how long do i do them for?



Is 30min ok to prep?



I put a drop of washing liquid in also to help get the oils out.



Can you boil Microfiber? - Ive got some bamboo/mf inserts coming that i'll have to prep too.

I don't know how long to boil for, but yes you can boil MF. But nothing with PUL or elastic

hey, ya'll! Peeking in to say hi before my day goes and gets crazy.
I have 4 different students who have sewing classes today, and I'm looking at someone else's embroidery machine, trying to fix it. Then, I have to finish a few "here and there" orders before I start on my big order.



What ya'll up to?

I'm sick :x:x
I have to take the dogs to the vet for shots, and hopefully I can hit up the goodwill on the way back for more sweaters.
Oh, and I emailed JBN the link to the review yesterday, and John was super duper happy with it. He thought it was great and wants to work together again in the future 8)




And I want a sewing class, too. I can't sew straight, it's all ~
