DD got a bad rash from my using Bac-Out on the dipes. (2-5 squirts in the load.) Her rash healed fine with desitin and sposies. I washed the treated dipes three times to get any traces out, but when I put them on her she got a rash again!

Is there anything I can use to neutralize these enzymes??? I feel like my dipes have become a biohazard for DD. I'm afraid to put them back on her.

...Would bleach neutralize them? I don't care about elastics on my Fuzzi Bunz at this point, I just want to make them safe for her to wear again....but how?

Hot water should kill the enzymes.

Thanks Jgmn.

I just did a hot rinse, and now I'm onto rinse number two. I'm adding pots of boiling water to this second rinse. Trying to maximize temperature, without having to boil them on the stove.

I'll probably give DD another day or two to heal her rash before I try these out on her.

I really appreciate the help mamas! Thank you!
