Obama fails in oil press conference

Ok so I CD'd my DD and had only minimal stinky issues for over a year using Rockin Green in an old top loader. But then we started getting ammonia and garbage stinkies. I bleached, soaked, and it was bearable until we switched to spoaie pull-ups and regular undies.

Now I'm due with #2 soon and want to get it right. In over Rockin Green! I have a front loading HE machine and fairly hard water. My plan is to use tide HE powder to the 2 line, add extra water and/or towels. Cold rinse, Santize cycle (long,hot), extra rinse. 1/4 cup bleach added monthly.

Does that look like a good starting point? A few of the dipes will be leftovers from DD. How do I keep from reactivating any leftover funk? What is the deal with Calgon and do I need it?

Thanks for helping out a CDer who feels like a newb again!

I would just use hot water, there is no need for the sanatize cycle, and it's not good for the elastic on your pockets, covers, or AIOs. In fact most places say not to use water over 130 F.

Also if you have hard water, Tide is a good option for you! In fact it's your best option. It'll work much better than the sanatize cycle at getting diapers clean. I would definitely do that! And adding towels to the wash with your diapers and washing more frequently, is the best way I've found to get diapers clean in an HE machine, so that's also a good idea!

I rinse the diapers out first, and then do a wash of half diapers half towels. Towels come very clean, as do my diapers!

I have no experience with Calgon, so I can't comment on that. Perhaps someone that has tried it would know.

Also, prepping everything together or seperate is your perogative. I always prepped cotton and synthetics together without an issue, my only exception was hemp. I did initially prep oil machine my hemp with my regular laundry and not my diapers. I so wasn't wasting a load of laundry on a couple hemp Oil Press doublers. LOL But after I had washed them with my regular clothing 3-4 times I just continued prepping them with the rest of my diaper laundry.

I know some say that cotton should be prepped seperate from snythetics, but in my personal experience it didn't make a difference either way. So that's why I do and have always prepped them together since.
