    Default Would you use dettol?

    DS has had gastro. So nappies are just lovely... Even wet ones smell way more off than usual!
    I would normally do a strip wash after anything like this, but I only did one last week.
    So do you think a bit of dettol through the wash would be ok? If it was just flats I wouldn't even ask. But not sure about MCN's...



    TIA

    I'm not sure as I am allergic to Dettol. Have you tried white vinegar in the final rinse?

    Sage

    Vinegar can't be used with mcn's coz it can ruin the water proof layer. Thats why I was trying to think of something else that would disinfect, but is safe at the same time.

    The dettol laundry rinse stuff would be fine - not sure about normal dettol.

    Either that or canestan - I use the canestan rinse for every wash anyway.
