We've always had ours up as high as it will go in order to get clean, sanitary diapers. However, dd is getting older and more capable of finding trouble. I had a scare a few weeks ago. I had her in the shower with me and she walked behind me while I was sudsing up my hair and suddenly turned the cold water all the way off. I frantically shoved the shower head as far to the side as I could, scooped dd up, and then adjusted it. She hasn't pulled that one again. So, if you turn it down so it's safe, how do you ensure your diapers are getting clean?

I guess I'll have to have dh show me how to turn it up and down. I don't think it has a temp. gauge on it, you just kind of have to guess. That could get old. Thanks for your input!

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/jaw.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="dropjaw"> How scary! I would have freaked out if it had been me! I have worried about this same thing, and also about how to get the dishes clean, since we don't have a dishwasher. I thought maybe pouring boiling water over them, but that has its own dangers!

No problem! Mine has to be turned with a screwdriver and it does have numbers on it, a few anyway. I keep it at about 125 normally and it goes up to 150, so that's what the dipes are washed at. I must say that I have NO problem with stains now that I started doing this, they all come out and that was FAR from true before.<br><br>
My dh refused to help me btw so I figured it out myself.<br><br>
Julia, I wouldn't worry about germs on dishes. Germs need "food" to survive, so when you clean them you take away their food source so they die. I used to make products for the food manufacturing industry, cleaning products I mean.<br><br>
