Why do my cloth diapers smell like urine?
Residue usually builds up when you don’t use enough detergent or hot water to wash and rinse your diapers clean. If there is too little of either, the urine is diluted, instead of being rinsed away. It’s recycled in the wash and dries onto the fabric, causing a stinky odor.

When should you throw away cloth diapers?
