Please Reassure Me!!

I posted the other day about a fungal rash my daughter had, asking about how to treat the diapers. I was told to bleach them, so I bought some bleach today (the fragrance free kind) and am bleaching all the inserts right now.

I am super freaked out (and my husband isn't helping) that when I do the diapers next (mostly pul pockets, but some WAHM ones as well with cotton outers, and some fitteds) all my beautiful print and color diapers are going to be ruined.

Can someone who has actually bleached their diapers to treat them please reassure me that it will be okay?

Re: Please Reassure Me!!

I bleached my diapers three washes in a row (was battling ongoing mystery rash - didn't want to take any chances). I have pul covers and had one very brightly colored (red) fitted - no issues or color loss. I used 1/4 cup bleach each time. They smelled great and were all so white afterwards. =) I also bleached everything together - I didn't separate out my inserts/covers.

Re: Please Reassure Me!!

awesome! thank you so much! I probably would have done everything together except that we have so many diapers I would have had to do two loads any way. Separating them just seemed to make sense! =D
