I read online to soak in 4-6 scoops of oxyclean over night....I soaked it in one scoop....then realized I needed to add more....added more then realized I added wayyyy too much....you are supposed to go by the lines I think and my scoop has 4....-__-.



Should I soak in plain water over night after washing with nothing a couple times....what do I do...this sucks soooo bad

Rinse rinse rinse! And soak in nothing but water overnight. The rest of the oxyclean should be ok

Okay I just ran the initial wash....then a rinse....then a wash and a extra rinse.....so maybe two more rinses then let soak in just water overnight?



Should I take my covers out now?

They shouldn't mold in the overnight soak right?

I soak in oxy clean all th etime. I have no issues with my diapers at all, but I dont even use a full scoop.

I add hot water my diapers then the oxyclean, I agitate them with my plunger a few seconds, then I add in some baking soda, then next morning I re-wash them (by hand) I wash by hand always. Then I rinse and hang dry. It always gets my stains out if any. or any bad smells from the microfibre inserts.
