Fluff Talk Thursdays

"Ammonia Smell in Diapers-cause and treatment"

I am new to cloth diapering so I can't wait to see what moms have to say about this.  I have found this to happen to me but I find that when it does it is time to wash diapers.  While the diapers are washing I also wash the pail out.  Sometimes I use a bleach and let it sit in the pail and then give the pail a good rinse out.  Right now since it is summer I let the pail sit outside and dry.  If I am not using the bleach I dump some vinegar into the pail and do the same thing.  It seems to work but I always wonder if it is OK for my diapers.  So far I have not had any problems.


  1. Thanks for joining in. Well, I hope you never experience this sproblem to the degree that I have. Esp. the amonia burn. :-(
