: Hi Joy,
: I wouldn't use it on a regular basis. It's not as harsh as chlorine bleach but still a solvant and does add to the wear and tear of a diaper. I've heard that it can even 'eat holes' in hemp diapers so it's not something I would chance personally.
I used to use borax pretty regurarlly and had no problems, the ME's are just as nice and soft as when I got them, and i had no problems w/ our hemp either, but now that I have heard that it has "eaten holes" in others hemp, I wont be using it w/ my hemp any more, dont want to take a chance! I use baking soda as well.
