Quick question, while the dipes are doing the first rinse how much bleach do you add to the hot wash? Do I just put it in my dispenser in my top loader? Oh and should certain stuff come out, like pul? Will colors fade?

I just want to disinfect basically, I have oxy as well if that's safer?!

Thanks mamas

Re: Bleach mamas!

I do a 1/4 cup diluted in 3/4 cups water then add that to my dispenser. I do this with all my diapers and covers. Only natural fibers will have color fading but only if you do it all the time. I wouldn't worry about it if you are just doing it every once in a while.

Any reason for that? I've been thinking of doing it that way sot that the long wash will help get more of the bleach out. I hate having to do an extra short wash just to get all the bleach out.

Re: Bleach mamas!

I do 1/4 cup right in the bleach dispenser, I don't even dilute it first. Sometimes I add it to the first rinse, sometimes I don't add it until the hot wash. Regardless of when I add it, I always do an extra rinse with bleach loads.

Re: Bleach mamas!

I put it in the dispenser and I noticed my machine doesn't mix it with the washing(with soap) prt of the wash. It adds it to the next batch of clean water. So with my washer it really doesn't matter when i dd it. the washer is a smarty pants and adds it after the washing cycle, lol.

Re: Bleach mamas!

I have a FL and just put it in the dispenser. I'm not sure how much it is - someone told me it's probably close to 1/2 c. I put it in when I do the intial rinse. After that I do a full hot wash with detergent and then finish up with a full cold wash without detergent. It has been working great for us - no more stinkies!

For those of you who measure, do you have a measuring cup in your laundry area to be precise or do you just guesstimate like me?
