Bambino Bums and Stinky Diapers

I recently won a BambinoBums Diaper from Calgary Cloth Diaper Depot for being a fan on FB.

The BambinoBums are a one size pocket diaper with fleece lining and a microfleece insert. I thought they may not fiy as well because they only have one row of snaps to fasten around the waist instead of two like all my other snap diapers but it fits my girls great! I love the fit, I love the bright colours and I would definetaly buy more if I needed more diapers.

When I went to the website to set up the link I saw that BambinoBums just redesigned to add an extra snap around the waist! While this is great the other thing that is great is now the diapers at Calgary Cloth Diaper Depot are on sale, you can try one out for only $11.20. Sweet.

I tried it once and while it helped it did not eliminate the stink. I continued my regular wash routine but added some Baking Soda to each wash and that helped maintain the smell but it was still there. I decided to try the Rockin Green again and make sure I follow all the instructions. It seems to have worked on my Blueberry Diapers (which are partly bamboo) but my BumGenuis still stink, they are better, but still stink. I am not impressed and I am not sure what I am going to try next. I would not recommend the Funk Rock soap though, it was too expensive not to work.

  1. I got the Laundry Tarts stripper, but I dont use it very often. I actually found that after doing a pre-rinse, in between my normal detergent, I do a hot run with a squirt of blue dawn and about 1/4-1/2 cup of vinegar and a double rinse on it and it took care of the smell after a few washes. Also letting them dry in the sun helps too when we have it !
