My daughter was just diagnosed with an impetigo diaper rash and we use cloth diapers.  I was told that everything that they should be bleached or we would run the risk of reinfection after it is cleared up, but I don't want to ruin all my diapers (we use pockets - if it was prefolds I probably wouldn't care as much).  I've read that tea tree oil can be effective and was thinking about adding some of this to the wash cycle, but I'm not sure how much to add.  Any suggestions?
