How much are you using? I've been using 1/2 of line 1 and they smell clean after I wash the diapers but as soon as lo pees in them it kinda smells like fart and it has a strong ammonia smell to it. Could be just his pee? He's almost 10 months and barely drinks water. Just breast milk.

Is 2/3 of the cup like 2 cups?

I use country save, but I think it's pretty comparable (used planet before CS, CS was just cheaper for me)...and it was right about then I was starting to have the same issue, the kids were getting more solids, stinkier poops, and having to spray diapers. I upped how much I used, and it fixed my issues. I went from, I think it was a half scoop in my wash, to 1/2 scoop in my initial rinse, and full scoop in my wash, and added an extra rinse (so 3 total), and added some TTO in the last one. Good luck!

Thanks! I will try and use 1 scoop from now on and see if it fixes it. I was using RnG but it got expensive so I switched to planet. Hopefully I don't have to switch again!

I looked yesterday and I fill the cap up to the 1 line. Hope increasing your detergent amount helps. Just be sure to rinse well.

Your smelling diaper build-up. Time for a good diaper stripping. I used Planet and learned that they cause terrible build-up. Try rockin green.
