Re: Who washes their diapers in WARM and not HOT?

I tried washing my BGs on warm and they still smelled so I went back to hot washes. If they didn't hang onto the smell I'd wash them in warm. I wash my inserts on the sanitary setting in my FL.

Anything under 130F will NOT kill the bacteria, so I definitely use hot. I don't really care if my dipes are a bit stained, but I DO care whether they are really clean or not!
