My friend gave me some of her old prefolds and they REEK of bleach. Not only this, but I used them on my DS (after washing two different times in hot with borax and two hot rinses) and he got a horrible blistery rash that took two weeks to go away. I'm not sure what kind of detergent she uses, so that combined with the bleach seems to be a really bad thing for DS's skin. Is there anything I can do to get all of this crap out of the diapers?

I had to bleach my kids diapers the other day to get the ammonia stink out. My son is pretty darn sensitive to bleach so I had to just keep rinsing. I washed like usual and then kept rinsing until I didn't smell bleach anymore, about 6 rinses. But if they're just prefolds I'd probably boil them.
