Formula supplementing-need to change wash routine?

So far I've been EBFing and have not worried about putting poopy diapers straight in the wash. Now, however, I've had to start supplementing with formula. Not much, 3-4 oz. a day. Should I be doing anything different when washing?

Yeah, my ds gets formula every now and then if I don't get to pump enough at work and he still has the bm poos.

Nope, nothing different. Same prewash, hot wash with detergent, and a couple rinses.

Just make sure you rinse it before throwing it in the wash.

I formula fed and never did anything special. It all came out in the wash exactly like breastmilk poop did.

I actually never rinse (I do a prewash) and everything comes out clean.

My DD has 1-2 bottles of formula during the week b/c I can't pump enough. We keep our same routine and everything has been fine.
