Who washes on just warm?

Just curious. I know most wash on hot...but our water is super hot and we live in a condo without a seperate water heater. I wash on warm because I have bG! 1.0. Do you think dipes are clean enough if washed on warm only?

Re: Who washes on just warm?

I washed on warm for a few months and my diapers always seemed clean. once I got rid of my BGs though, I went back to washing on hot.

I wash on warm by default. Our hot on our washing machine is really only very warm. Everything seems to come out just fine =)

I wash on warm if BGs are in there. Every 3rd wash though, I separate my pocket/covers from inserts/fitted/prefolds. I wash the cover/pockets separately and then the others in hot. I found I got a funky smell every so often if I didn't.

I always wash on warm and they are clean enough for me. Just recently I stripped my inserts on hot, though. (I have BG 1.0 as well)

I soak in cold; wash in warm and rinse in cold and I have had no problems. I know there are other mamas around here the do only cold and haven't had any probs.

I wash just in cold. Seems to work fine =) Cold rinse (or wash), cold wash w/bit of detergent, cold rinse again.
