Re: when the trusty Tide and bleach isn't working.....

I like to add bleach and a little bit of detergent to the first rinse, my diapers come out sparkling when I do this! I think that a little bit of detergent in the first rinse helps get rid waaaaay more yucky stuff than no detergent, and then the full wash is more effective at getting out the rest.

I do this:
First warm rinse with 1-2 oz. bleach and Tide to the 1 line.
Hot wash with Tide to 1.5 or 2 line.
I don't do an extra rinse ever, but if you feel more comfortable doing it then obviously you should.

Good luck!
