I have tried a million ways to wash our diapers and have tried a variety of detergents.

1. Spray off poop
2. Wash all diapers together like this
-Spray Biokleen stain and odor remover on possible stains
-Cold rinse
-Wash on hot with 1oz of Biokleen detergent
-Covers go in mesh bag since they have aplix
- Remove all PUL, covers and inserts
- Ecover softner on prefolds and fitteds
3. Hang Dry covers and Pockets. Throw everything else in the dryer with dryer balls. Pockets will go in the dryer for a few minutes at the end of the cycle.

No problems for the most part, stink issues once or twice when switching to a few detergents. Wicking when we used Ecover softner on inserts. But for the most part this works for us and we have a variety of diapers.

Question... Does anyone use Dawn here and there? Or in every wash?
I never thought of using a mesh bag to separate the covers w/ aplix! Great idea!!
