I have been using my cloth diaper and I may just be over reacting but there is a smell that the diaper is slowly developing. It is really minor right now but I would like to know how to clean cloth diapers so that they won't have a really strong odor.
I have been using a home made laundry detergent. Borax, baking soda, and a bar of ivory soap. I put this in a food processor and after it being made into granules I let it dry out and put it into a blender.
I have been attaching the Velcro on my diaper and turning it inside out when I put it in the washer and then putting it into the drier.
Is there any more I can do to prevent a strong odor from building up? I have hard water where I live so this may make things difficult.
