Getting ready for the arrival of baby #2, and I need to prep some diapers I've picked up used over the past few months... I have about 10 Kissaluvs fitteds and a half dozen prefolds, both bleached and unbleached. I'd like to be sure that I'm not starting out with detergent leftover from previous owners. Everything looks clean, so I guess I'm not worried about that, but more so that I will be putting unknown detergent residues on my new baby. Would you recommend just stripping them? (Wash over and over in HOT water until there are no more suds?) Should I keep the Kissaluvs separate from the prefolds? Thanks for your insights!
I think simply washing used diapers once with your own personal choice of detergent is sufficient.
If you're really uncomfortable with the state of your used diapers; sure, strip them. But not completely necessary imo.
Although if I put a diaper on the baby and it smelled funny or something after she peed, then I would do more stringent cleaning (add a little bleach to the wash).
