Please tell me this is ok...

My ds just exploded out of his Rumpsters...seriously enough poop to fill 3 diapers. I was way too grossed out to rinse the dipe..and there was too much to rinse anyway (not a clean spot on the dipe to be able to hold it) so I threw it in the washing machine with the 3 towels it took to clean the high chair he was sitting in. I put some TTO (to cover the stink and if it helps with anything else well...great, cuz I dont really know what its supposed to be used for anyway..aside from treating yeast infections) in the wash with it...is this ok or was there too much poop to be putting it in the washing machine without rinsing first?

IDK I did that once or twice when I was desperate . I washed a load of towels afterwads with bleach to clean everything out.

I would then rewash those towels and rewash the dipe with your other dipes once it comes out of the wash.. IMO

Re: Please tell me this is ok...

Since there isn't much else in there, I think it will be ok.

At the most, you might have to run an extra cycle, but doubt it.

No worries. The water all drains to the same place.

no there's nothing wrong with using the washing machine to rinse dipes. Plus you used TTO which will kill anything. I do this all the time and then put my wets in with the just rinsed dirties and do a rinse cycle again. Then I actually do the wash part.

I guess you'll find out I'm sure it'll be ok, but may take 2 loads.
