spin-off: Vinegar in the first rinse or wash rinse?

If you use vinegar on your diapers, when do you add it to the wash?

Do you put it in the pre-rinse or in the final rinse?

I have very hard water if that makes a difference.

TIA

Re: spin-off: Vinegar in the first rinse or wash rinse?

When I wash I do a cold soak with tea tree oil and the detergent, then I let it go through the whole cold wash and rinse. Then I do a hot wash, cold rinse, and I add the vinegar in right at the start. That way it gets rinsed out. I know a lot of people put it in the Downy ball so it is emptied in the rinse cycle, but I like to get the vinegar out to.

I never have build up and my diapers always smell so clean!

I put mine in the fabric softener compartment so I think that happens in the wash rinse.
