    I use the cycle where they soak in hot water for 30 sec, put detergent and vinegar, rinse twice with cold water. Dry as usual.

    I've always just washed as usual. Hot water and detergent is pretty good at getting everything out. I'm really not a fan of using alternative microbial agents when there is a question of safety. When in doubt I always go bleach (I was a microbiologist and bleach always got us 0 CFU with an occasional maybe 1 CFU even when we were using strains at a concentration of 10^6). It will kill everything.

    I just throw them in with my next load of diapers and do my regular, cold rinse, hot wash w/tto, second rinse. I don't think I've had a new diaper since Savana was still in them so all of mine are used and they've never been hard to clean.
