Do the bright coloerd diapers bleed onto their white inners if using HOT water for clean?
I'd say you will be just fine adding it to the appropriate cycle. That's what I used to do. Toss in the oxy/detergent/softner during the washing cycle. You should be good to go!

If you have new diapers, you may have bleeding. I have never had new, so am not sure. I know our cloths do because I wash everything in hot. Hot works much better. I use the shout color catching sheets for normal laundry when something new is in the load.
