I stripped mine then washed them as if they were yucky diapers.
funkymama:I wash them using about 1/4 cup of bleach. That should kill off any bacteria that might be lurking. Its okay to have some "ick issues." These are going on you're LO's bum! lol!
This is how I cleaned my used dipers. Hot wash with 1/4 cup bleach and regular soap, followed by a cold rinse. I have ick issues too!
