Re: Another rinse?

What are you using for detergent? I would probably give it another rinse just in case.

That looks like soap to me. I'd do an extra rinse.

I won't even show you what my final rinse looks like (I use Tide). I'd be thrilled if that was my final rinse.

I do a full warm/cold cycle w/ no detergent after the hot/cold cycle w/ Tide, and I have more bubbles during the cold rinse at the end than that. I've quit worrying about it though..... if I use less Tide, then my diapers stink. Although, even w/ the amount of Tide I'm using, I still have to use bleach too. I think that I've come to accept it.... my diapers don't stink or repel. I dunno, I guess I'll just do an extra extra rinse every once and a while.

Tide is the reason why the final rinse doesn't look all that clean. It's leaves build up, you can see it in the water.

How much do you use? I used the line before the 1, but maybe that's too much. I really don't want to do all these extra rinses, so maybe I should do less...
