Hibiclens before GBS test

How do you use Hibiclens as prophylactic for GBS? Should I start now? (I'm almost 34 weeks) I know there was a thread about this a while back, but I can't seem to find it right now.

I am already doing lots of probiotics and vitamin C, I'll pick up some garlic tablets soon so hopefully that will all help.

this was the recent thread: http://www.pregnancy.org/bulletinboards/showthread.php?t=615936

In some searching, I have come across one recommendation to start washing a week before the test, and another place said just to do it the day of the test. The recommendation I'm finding is to dilute it with water (by how much seems to varry) to avoid irritation.

Good question, I'm a ways away but was wondering this too.
