The inserts to the diapers were starting to get a stink to them and I was having a hard time getting the smell out. I tried stripping them with bleach once a month, sometimes twice. I would sun bleach them, but it really wasn’t doing much. One wash and yes I mean ONE full wash with the soap nuts and the smell is gone!! GONE I TELL YOU!!! GONE!!!!
*takes deep breath* Ok now that I’m a bit calmer, you have to understand that as much as I love cloth diapers it can be frustrating. And now that I found these soap nuts, I’m so excited that I can get the diapers to smell fresh again.
I also find that there isn’t a soapy residue on clothes or on the diapers, and they do come out soft considering I don’t use fabric softener on anything. I would have to say at this point these nuts are great for sensitive skin. Remember, I am not a doctor (stop laughing people) so you can’t hold me for what I say, but Isabella has very sensitive skin and she wore the diapers all day today plus clothing that I had washed in the nuts and not a reaction what so ever! I think for people who want clean clothes that smell fresh with out all the chemicals, this is the way to go.
I will definitely buy more nuts once I use all these!! I have a new love.
