I do
First I use the diaper sprayer and fill the wetbag of dirty diapers with water to fool the water sensor. Then I do a cottons normal cycle with water plus and extra rinse on cold with NO spin.
Then I do a speed wash on hot as a rinse. You can add an extra rinse to that depending on your water. My water is soft soft soft so I need extra rinses. and I use tide HE!

Yep, I do!

I do a cold wash with water plus, then a sanitary with water plus and an extra rinse. I have very hard water.

we do and we love it! no problems to report with it! we use it with homemade laundry soap (rockin green's new formula gave us all terrible reactions).

We do a custom cycle.. warm wash and rinse, with soil level set at high and thats it!

wondering about your reactions to rgreen. my son's have had terrible diaper rash but they have also had diarrhea for almost 3 weeks. we had a stomach virus go through the house and the older ones and adults recovered in about 4 days but my 12 month and 24 month olds are still pooping 5x a day.

OT but I feel for you with your babies not digesting yet since that virus. Go get some good quality baby probiotics (not just yogurt but the refrigerated powder - put it in their drinks). They lost all the good bacteria in their systems and this will get them back to normal faster. Good luck. (if you are still bf'ing you can take probiotics yourself and that will help too )

I just do all diapers on the "sanitary" setting. I found it easier than customizing. Many fewer buttons to push, and you get extra hot water.

I also hit water plus and extra rinse.
