The Forgotten Wet Bag

"Honey, will you get my glove out of the trunk"

You run out to the car, open the trunk and BAM there it is, the smell of death....or close to it.  You open the trunk to see your beloved diapers sitting in a wet bag....and the awful part is that you aren't sure how long they have been in there.  You contemplate washing or tossing...

How to recover from misplacing your wet bag:
Step 1: Put on a gas mask (seriously, these things will be STINKY)
Step 2: Put on gloves (you're not really sure what's in there....you didn't even remember they were there in the first place!)
Step 3: Take everything to a toilet where you can rinse any solids down
Step 4: Take the wet bag full of diapers to your washer and don't breathe while you are emptying the wet bag into the wash (make sure to toss the wet bag in there too)
Step 5: Turn your washer to a wash cycle and make sure the temperature is on HOT
Step 6: Run the cycle without adding any soap
Step 7: DO NOT OPEN THE DOOR AFTER STEP SIX, YOU WILL REGRET GETTING HIT BY THE WALL OF FUNKY ODOR
Step 8: (this is for people who survived step 7) Turn your washer to the longest cycle you have available, with the most amount of water, and add detergent AND baking soda (like a full scoop of both)
Step 9: Turn your washer BACK to the wash cycle and wash them on hot again (no detergent)
Step 10: Turn your washer to rinses and rinse, rinse, RINSE those diapers until you don't see suds. 
Step 11: Take the diapers out and sniff them.  If they smell fresh, go to step 12, if they are still stinky, repeat steps 8-10 with about half the amount of detergent/baking soda you used. 
Step 12: Take your diapers out and if at all possible, hang them to dry in the sun (nature's bleach).
Step 13: Enjoy your wonderful, non smelly diapers :)
