Yeast rash- how to get it out of the diapers?

DD is 9 months and has a yeast rash. We're trying Nystatin powder which worked when my oldest was a baby.

How do I make sure it's not in the diapers. I put her in disposables to get rid of the rash, and the first day back in cloth, after stripping the diapers, the rash was back. So I'm thinking it's still in the diapers.

How can I clean them so the yeast dies?

There's a million and one home remedies but bleach is your friend here. Other stuff might work, might not. Bleach will, whether it is fungal, bacterial, ammonia, buildup or purple spotted elephants sneezing in your diapers. Just 1/4 cup in a large load will cure the diapers, the wipes, the covers, the sheets, the clothes, the changing pad and anything else that's got the infection in it. Rinse the daylights out of it when you're done and everything will be good to go, including your washing machine.
