mk, I don't know if Borax is hard on fabric - hopefully not, because I use it in my laundry all the time!
I bought a thermometer yesterday, and it said my hot water out of the tap is between 115-118. So I'm debating whether or not to turn up the hot water heater. My DD never uses the hot water, but I'm still paranoid about the danger of scalding. I already run undies on a Sanitary cycle, which supposedly heats the water even more than Hot. I've also been boiling my cloth pads, just in case.
I honestly don't know if I'm re-infecting myself, or whether I'm just experiencing ongoing yeast issues. I suspect the latter, because I'm experiencing some other issues, all of which started after I took this massively strong antibiotic in November.
Thanks so much for the input!
