Tea tree oil when you wash your dipes. A friend of mine recommended using it when I wash my dipes. As of right now, I use Tide free, baking soda and vinegar.<br><br>
Oh, and does anyone else wash their rice paper liners. I read on a different board that you could "wash" them and re-use them once or twice. I never knew... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"><br><br>
Thanks!!!!!!

We dont use liners, but I could not imagine washing diapers without TTO. We use it everytime in the prewash cycle.

I use about 10-12 drops for a large load of diapers.

We use it everytime and can tell when I dont. They don't have that as fresh smell if I forget. Interesting when we all use it. I use "Susan's Wash Method" and add 7 drops of TT to the last wash.

Wow, I use TTO in my wipes solution but it never even *dawned* on me to use it in the wash. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">:<br><br>
I'll be doing that from now on!

I use TTO in every wash (the hot cycle) I never even thought to use it in the prewash. Will be trying that today <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">

Yep, I love the smell of TTO. I use to really help with the sanitizing and to give them a nice clean smell. If I go for a while without using it, Sara gets rashy and red. The TTO just seems to get my dipes extra clean and I just adore the smell of laundry running with TTO in it. Makes my laundry room/kitchen(laundry room is directly off the kitchen) smell fabulous. Especially if the sun is streaming in through the window! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"><br><br>

We use TTO in our hot cycle. Have been doing it for nearly 3 years. I add about 15 drops when I add the detergent. I add to my regular laundry when someone's sick.
