I'm so mad at myself.  I left all my cloth diapers in their pail and forgot about them for weeks!!  They are covered in green mold.  (We are in the process of renovating a house & moving so I've been very bad at remembering to do things)  ;)    Is there anyway to get them clean?  I really hope so - it's like 300.00 worth of diapers.. uggh.  I have YL Thieves oil and cleaner - would that help at all?  I'm about to just throw them in with a lot of bleach (but that would mean I have to go out and buy some bleach) if it means saving them.


Any ideas that will work?

Get some 20 Mule Team Borax soak them in that and laundry as ussual.  Bleach isn't as great a mold killer as some think Borox is and it wont damage your diapers in the process... I'm not at all anti bleach but were talking soaking I'd do the borox.
