I just do the same wash routine as I normally do.Cold wash no soap, hot wash with soap.

I used to add a touch of bleach in with the load, but now I just throw them in with the rest of the load, and do a normal diaper wash.

I do a hot wash with white towels, that way in case there is a problem I can bleach the heck out of everything.

I got the stinkies from a FSOT diaper like a year ago (and it was awful to get rid of!) so now I always do at least a rinse and spin with bleach before adding to my stash.. Who knows what's living on that diaper! I don't want that on my baby!
