But yes oxi, bleach, and borax weaken fibers, as does soaking, more for elastic and natural fibers that I synthetics. It depends on the length of time and the quantity used, but it's hit and miss which quantity is safe.

Country Save removes the stains and dinginess in diapers I get FSOT. Too bad you can't get sample size.

I spray each diaper with watered down bac out after he poops in it and I think this helps a ton with stains. I do use bleach in the wash but the bac out must be preventing stains cause I have none.
