Sometimes nappies can get clogged up with creams, or just a build up of washing powder which can effect the absorbabcy of them and sometimes make them whiff a bit too. When you strip a nappy, you remove all of this build up so the absorbancy is back to where it should be and they shouldnt smell anymore. There is a sticky about some different ways to strip. Ive got a strip wash on atm as I was given some nappies from a work colluige and they smelt very very strongly of washing powder so wanted to make sure that all of this was removed as build up can also cause nappy rashes
