How do you prep used diapers

I just bought some GMD workhorses from FSOT and they are in excellent condition. I'm wondering though how I should wash them before we use them for the first time? Should I bleach them just to be safe? Do you ever use oxy clean instead of bleach? Thanks for your help.

I do a hot wash with bleach and detergent and then another hot wash.

Re: How do you prep used diapers

I soaked mine in the kitchen sink (since the water can get REALLY Hot) for half an hour, rinse, repeat. If your water doesn't get hot boil some. It works great. I guess in a way it's also "stripping" your diapers, it sanitizes and get rid of any soap residue that may have from previous owner. I would use bleach, if you want a little Borax will do great. Hope this helps! Oh yeah you may have some rubber gloves handy for handing the hot water
