Re: Beginner questions

Sorry to be annoying...just more wonders here

Does everyone wash the insert with the diaper all together? How many dry their dipes in dryer? Also, if you bleach the diapers, im assuming you only bleach the white inserts or doesn't it make spots on colors? (dont bleach often so forgive me if this is dumb)

Yes, wash inserts/pockets all together. Your wash routine shouldn't take so many cycles....just rinse them first, hot wash with detergent and add an extra rinse. Most machines have all those options you can select. If not they can be done manually, usually.

I always dry my diapers in the dryer every time, never have had issues there. I bleach once a month, I use about 1/4 cup and no, it wont cause bleach spots on PUL (waterproof plastic fabric like on the outer of a pocket diaper). If you had fitteds made with colorful cotton fabric it could fade them I suppose but I don't have any of those.
