Stripping Diaper - Tips from Happy Heinys

Build up refers to residue left by detergents, fabric softeners, and other substances used to clean diapers. In rare instances, baking soda will react with certain minerals in water and also cause build up. If you notice a decrease in the absorbency of your diapers, build up may be the culprit.

Stripping is the process of removing residue from your diapers. To strip diapers:
- Hand wash your diaper with regular dish soap to remove any oils.
- Put a small amount of dish soap on the fleece layer.
- Rub vigorously or use a medium bristle scrubbing brush to scrub the fleece.
- Turn the diaper inside out and repeat.
- Rinse thoroughly until the water runs clear.

You may use this method at any time you notice repelling or as a preventative measure once a week. If you are still having problems, try these special cleaning agents to strip your diapers:
- 2 scoops of Oxyclean in a very hot wash
- 1 ball of RLR (found at Wal-Mart in the laundry aisle hanging on a clip) in a hot wash
