Pinworms and cd

I didn't know where to put this. But I'm heading to the dr because I'm pretty sure ds2 had pin worms. Which if course means we all prob have them but should I switch to disposables while doing meds to get rid of worms and eggs? I use prefolds and meos so I don't mind bleaching then.

If We had this problem I would def use disposables, only because the thought of washing tiny worms in y washer freaks me out.

I would just bleach them, bleach kills just about everything. And everyone has parasites to some degree, It's just some of them are more obvious than others. I would cd through it.

Re: Pinworms and cd

unless they freak you out, I see no reason you should have to use sposies. I would bleach them and give them an extra rinse or two everytime I washed for a while, though.

I also heard from someone in phlebotomy school (or training or whatever) that bleach doesn't kill cancer cells either?! And apparently a handful of other scary germs/viruses are also not affected by bleach. Supposedly, accdg to her, rubbing alcohol does kill pretty much everything, though.

I dunno.

I still use bleach in the wash. I figure I look less crazy, and it smells less pungent...

This.

Personally for me it's the ick factor. You'd technically be fine doing whatever you're comfortable with. I'd personally have a hard time convincing myself not to torch the diapers.
