Re: Ewww--I'm scared of these used dipes I bought!
i wouldn't say a necessity...but after that whole staph thing esp i personally would do it. you just don't know where they're coming from. and bleach kills stuff that nothing else will. it won't hurt the dipes . but bleach then strip again...if it's that nasty you may be stripping a while!!!! try bleaching then stripping in the dishwasher if you have one, it's the most effective way IMO.
