Re: Afraid to try bleach, have a few questions

I use bleach in every load, but its a capful basically.. so maybe a tablespoon... I start the water, put the bleach in then once some water is in the bottom of the washer, then I start putting diapers in. If you pour it over top, sure it makes sense some covers might get a splash of straight bleach and it'll discolor them... but this way.. I've never ever had add an issue.

Thanks for the advice, I am still a little nervous, but I will have to give it a shot.

Re: Afraid to try bleach, have a few questions

I am doing my first load of diapers with bleach right now. I made dh come in the laundry room with me. I am so nervous something will happen to my diapers. Having clean diapers is what is most important right? I am going to do 2 extra rinses just to make sure all the bleach is gone. I did a cold rinse like normal then I took all diapers and inserts out of the washing machine filled half way with water then added my bleach and agitated a little then added more water then my diapers. This is probalbly over kill but I just dont want my pul pockets ruined.
