Back in January we were so excited about starting our new lives with cloth diapers and Kawaii brand. I was loving my Kawaii diapers and they never leaked. But then all of the sudden a couple weeks later, they were leaking like crazy. And I was so disappointed so I turned to bumGenius diapers for some help because I’ve never had problems with them.
I ordered more bumGenius diapers and read a paper that came with them that talked about cleaning them and it talked about stripping the diapers. Stripping the diapers! I don’t know why I didn’t think about that sooner!
Stripping diapers is done to get the diapers back to their original absorbent state. They were already clean so I put them through the washer six times on hot water. I never used any detergent (not recommended) but some use vinegar. Then I dried the diapers and now the diapers work amazingly. There are no leaks!
So this is something to keep in mind – strip your diapers every month or two to keep buildup away!
