I am new to cding and buying used cd's, and at first I was grossed out about buying used diapers, but I saw everyone else doing it, so I figured it would be okay. I posted to find out how other mama's washed their used diapers, and they said to add a cap full of bleach to the first wash. Some say wash on hot, but the bg's 1.0 can't be washed on hot, so i just soaked them separately in a sink of bleach and water and washed the rest on hot. If your dh is so concerned, remind him about hospital stays, using hotel towels, etc. those are washed on industrial strength hot, but they too had other people's yuckies on them. A little bleach will do the trick and such a small amount, used just for the intial wash won't break them down. Although I have found myself using it after dh has had a virus, just to be sure the germies are killed, kwim? HtH. Also, I read somewhere some form of hepatitus can live out of body for two weeks, so if your dh is really freaked out, just wash them in hot and bleach, and dry them and wait to weeks and do it again, and then put them on your lo, maybe that will calm him. Good luck.
