Re: How many pockets do you wash at one time?

I only fill my washing machine tub about half way full of pockets and inserts(otherwise we have problems with the cycle getting stuck - same thing happens with towels ). That's about 2 days worth of larges, for me (12-18). Most of my stuffers are MF towels/CB OS, but I also have some hemp. Most of my pockets are PUL. HTH

Re: How many pockets do you wash at one time?

I like the whipping look too. It just makes me feel my dipes are more clean!
I probably wash no more than about 12 pockets at once! (Well, they are SB AIO's) but I mainly use prefolds and the SB's thrown in!

Most of my loads are between 20 and 30 diapering items (diapers, inserts, soakers etc)

I have a big washer too.

I usually do at least 18. Recently as we've acquired more dipes I go two days with the twins which is more like 30ish. I think they come out fine.

On wash day I do 2 loads and do about 15-20 max on super. I like them to have tons of room to move! I have stuffed the washer full and only done one load and never had a problem.

Well I probably waste alot of water...I wash each day...(just because I hate them sitting)...and sometimes I'll even throw one or two in there on a rinse....then another and rinse again....and so on...then at the end of the day wash them (which is usually only about 5-6 diapers if that)...I have a front loader as well....anyone else do this sort of thing???
