Any one else not have time to wash before going out of town?

Due to my lack of planning, I'll have a bunch of dirty diapers tonight when dd2 comes home from day care and we're headed out of town til Sunday. DH already bought a packet of sposies because my parents have well water and it just doesn't wash the dipes clean enough.

Do you think I can just do a rinse cycle on all the dirty diapers, then hang them to dry while we're out of town? Then wash them when I get back on Sunday? We use flushable liners, so there shouldn't be too much poop to deal with.

Thanks for any advice and happy Thanksgiving, mamas!

I would either do the rinse cycle, or do a short cycle with just a bit of detergent and then hang to dry, and rewash when you get home. I would want to get as much of the pee/poop out of them as possible just to eliminate the ammonia smell.

I have many times. DH loves to come home and say--hey lets go visit my parents (6hr drive) and leave tomorrow. I just run everything through a short rinse and either hang up or lay out in the bathtub to dry and then wash when I get home. Never had a problem.

I also routinely wash every three days so if we are just going to be gone over the weekend I dont even bother rinsing.
