So, I figured others may need to be reminded too!

2)Wash & Disinfect

Easy peasy.....

One question:

Anyone know if you do all the rinsing that you would normally do following a stripping immediately after the stripping OR if you would just wait and do it following the washing & disinfecting stage?
I would do all the rinsing after stripping/before disinfecting.

I also use bleach on everything (and 2-3 Tbsp in every load). I've been doing this with PUL, microfiber, organic cotton, regular cotton, hemp and microfiber for over a year. All of my diapers look new and I've never had a problem
