I think I will try and strip them again. I don't think LO is teething at the mo - I can't believe how bad the nappies smell in the morning! OH hates it too so hopefully we can get this sorted. If we didn't bring him into our bed halfway through the night it wouldn't be so much of a problem. This time I did a full dose of bio washing powder plus some soda crystals and vinegar. Washed on 60 then rinsed for days and days adding extra water to the rinses. Will try again - perhaps just soda crystals and vinegar this time?

Buy some ariel bio powder, put some bicarb in with the wash, hang them outside if possible and rinse rinse rinse until all the bubble are gone. We used to get smelly nappies and changed to bio (as long as you extra rinse its fine and if you wash over 50 the enzymes are killed anyway) ariel seems to be the best we've tried & recommeded, the powders seem to be best out of all the different types with nappies, the liquid is probably the worst!
Dont put vinegar in with pul though, it damages it eventually.
