Anyone got any good advice for killing yeast (candida) in diapers? Ive tried vinegar, GSE, TTO and drying on high heat..... it seems to have mostly got rid of it but it seems to be lingering.

it's not the most popular thing around here on mdc, but sometimes you have to pull out the big guns and use a little bleach

edited to add that you could also boil your dipes.....

I agree if nothing else is totally getting rid of it, sometimes you have to resort to bleach. Even most of the big diaper manufactureres will say it's Ok to use it on the diapers once in a while.

Then rinse, rinse, rinse until the smell is totally gone. Then rinse again...lol
