Does your machine have a sanitize cycle? Not good to use all the time but the water is so hot it should kill most everything and do any stripping as well.

Unfortunately there is no sanitize cycle on my old school, yet newer, machine.

There are differing opinions but really if you are going to buy used diapers I would use bleach. I hate bleach but I use it when its makes since.

Sure things like Tea Tree Oil can kill some, maybe everything, but the ratio you need to use with the amt of water in a washer would be more ridicules than people realize. A Couple drops of TTO in the gallons of water in your washer isn't going to do anything, in my opinion.

You could boil the MF inserts to "strip" them, or just do hot washes when detergent, then again without and see if there are bubbles or if the smell after dried.
