Oil of Oregano and cloth diapers

Does anyone know if you can use oil of oregano in the wash w/ your cloth diapers?

I read that TTO, when diluted, does not fully disinfect your clothing. It was compared to antibiotics when not taken appropriately, eventually your body will build up immunity to them. Same w/ the TTO, eventually your it will not disinfect your clothing properly and leave "stuff" behind for regrowth (specifically yeasties).

I read to use Oil of Oregano, but not sure if I can use it in my wash with the diapers. If anyone has experience w/ this, I'd love to hear it.

I would not use it. It is a very HOT oil. If you have a mole you want removed you can put oregano on it to remove it. I am talking about theriputic grade oils.

I never used any oils on my dipes. I was too afraid of stink and buildup. I only used Charlies and Bacout.

Use GSE (grapefruit seed extract) instead! That stuff is awesome, and will kill any yeast, and germs!
Oregano is potent. Even in the smallest amounts. I would not put that near a bum, no matter how well it has been rinsed. Plus your kid will walk around smelling like an Italian restaurant
