As I stated in my post above, bleach in the wash and yogurt in the diaper area was the best thing that most efficiently took care of our yeast issue in the fastest way.
I figured it would but everything else I read said it wouldn't kills the spores. I did several wash things and I'm waiting to finish them with GSE

Nystatin didn't work. Lotrimin didn't work. Monistat cleared DS1 up overnight and DS2's bum looks 95% healed overnight. Glad I did what I thought was right! Doctor acted like Monistat wouldn't work. I didn't use the vaginal inserted but the vulva product in the smaller tube. DS2 looks almost normal again!

Re: Yeast Disaster

I use bleach every load since we had yeast, haven't had an issue since. Yes it stains and can ruin color, we have all unbleached or white diapers now so it doesn't bother me. I add about a tablespoon in my prewash.

GSE 1/2-1tsp in the rinse cycle. When we had yeast, it worked well for us. A couple drops in a wipe solution (diluted with two cups of water) should help too. You are correct about bleach not being effective on yeast spores.

Good luck. I'm sure you are, but definitely think about splitting all your stash up into thirds.

Re: Yeast Disaster

What is everything else?

The only little I've found about chlorine bleach not killing yeast spores stem from what seems like one article with no real citation for that information.

Re: Yeast Disaster

Where did you buy your GSE? We are also battleing yeast and I need to get some. I am just now trying lotrimin but will keep monistat in mind. I thought we had this kicked last week but one day in cloth brought it right back.
