From what I have read on these boards so far about ammonia stink, my poly-blend dipes need some sort of super sanitizing clean. Is it better for the diapers to use oxiclean or bleach? I am afraid of the harsh chemicals destroying the diapers or being too harsh on DD's cute little buns. Is one option better/safer? I would rather just switch to 100% cotton entirely, but DH wants me to try to save the MEOS before buying something new.

I would also do several hot washes with no soap at the end of the cycle. Hot water gets build up out better and IME when I have ammonia smell it is from detergent build up. Several hot washes with no soap (till I see no suds) does the trick.
