Re: Who's found their tried and true wash routine??
I always spray poo dipes before putting them in the pail
I do a cold rinse to get the extra pee out of the dipes.
Hot wash with 1/4 to 1/2 reg. amount of detergent....(1/4 for mostly pockets, 1/2 for mostly fitteds/pf's)
extra cold rinse to ensure the soaps all out of them.
I line dry my dipes. The sun makes them brighter, keeps elastic in working condition (high heat in the dryer will break elastic down quickly) I usually 'fluff' them in the dryer for about 5 minutes.
Once in a while I strip them and wash with 2 capfuls of bleach.
