How many rinses after bleach?
 
I just ran a load of diapers with bleach. I then washed with detergent and a cold rinse. How many additional rinses should I do?

I do a hot wash with detergent and bleach and then just one rinse.

You should be good with that. I put my bleach in my main wash with the detergent, so it gets the rinse from that wash and then I do a wash/rinse cycle with no detergent.

I usually do one rinse after bleach. Sometimes I skip it though.

I add it to my whitest of whites with a prewash and second rinse.

When I bleach my diapers (every couple of months), I use 1/4 cup bleach and I rinse 3 or 4 times afterwards until I can't smell the bleach at all.

This. Often though I will add it to the prewash in which case I don't even have to worry about an extra rinse.

Thanks! I wanted to get another load of laundry going, but didn't want to skimp on the rinses!!
