Mix 1 cup of baking soda in 4 cups of hot water, and add this solution to some cold water. Soak the reusable pee pads in this mixture for 2-4 hours before washing. Alternatively, you can use the vinegar technique which you will need to add a small quantity of vinegar (around 1 tablespoon) in the washing detergent.
