bleaching dipes- HELP!

so I have stripped recently and used grovia might bubbles to strip my dipes but they STILL smell of ammonia super quick. is it okay to put 1/4 cup of bleach in a prewash with ALL dipes (fleece, fitteds, covers, pockets, all inserts, etc) or will it bleach the colors out?!

help me please! step by step instructions would be best.

we use oxyclean baby detergent btw.

Should be fine to put it in with all your diapers just put bleach and water in first and then the diapers.

Yes it's fine. Bleach wont do anything to sythetics, however I use it on cotton prints too and they're fine. Just dont dump it on them or soak in it.
