    I'd say it's probably safe enough. A less expensive approach is to use a dilute bleech solution (1 tablespoon of bleech per quart of water, roughly). That works well if you are using vinyl bags. If you're using latex bags, then you should probably use a latex friendly detergent. The one I'm familiar with is from Urocare and it's called Urolux.
