Re: Washing dipes in an he front loader...

I had a really difficult time with mine as well. I use pocket diapers and found that even though they weren't bad as far as leaks went, that they always had a really strong smell when my son peed. I tried everything from many extra rinses, to using the heavy wash setting, to adding a wet towel, and I switched from an all natural detergent to Tide F&G. Nothing seemed to do a whole lot. So now I soak the inserts in a bucket (with lid) of vinegar water and have no more stink problems, it was my only solution and works like a charm.

Re: Washing dipes in an he front loader...

I use the sanitize wash on my HE FL with Tide original liquid and about a tablespoon of bleach. Then I run a whole other short wash with no soap/bleech. I have never had a problem. Our stash is flats, covers, and AIOs (swaddlebees simplex and imagine bamboo mostly).

I have a whirlpool duet he frontloader. I have fuzzibunz elite and swaddlebees simplex. Haven't had any problems yet....

I use tide original he liquid.

Delicate wash on cold. With about 1tbsp of tide.

Heavy duty hot wash with a prewash and extra rinse (cold) with tide to the 2 line. I take out my wet bags after this cycle and rinse them in the sink. I find that soap gets trapped in them no matter how many rinsed I do.

Quick wash with no detergent on hot with a cold rinse.

Dry on medium.

I'll also add one cap full of bleach every couple of washes to the heavy duty cycle.

I rinse all of my poopy diaper even though she is ebf. And rinse all of my overnight diapers with the diaper sprayer.

Re: Washing dipes in an he front loader...

i have an he front loader! here is my routine that i have perfected after over a year of trying to get it right.

first off i never do more than a days worth, i learned my lesson when i had 2 in dipes and they were not getting clean, like at all, the max amt of dipes ill do is 15 and in the rare occassion i skip a day of dipe laundry i do 2 loads...usually a mixture of flats, prefolds, fitteds, fleece and pul pockets/covers and whatever fleece liners or wipes i used for that day... i have never personally had a problem with microfiber but i decided to get rid of all of mine to avoid any possible problems!

-i start off with a cold rinse/spin and i do the low speed for the spin
-then i add an entire pitcher (2 qts i believe?) of water directly into the diapers then i add 1/2 scoop of country save powder into the little dispenser area and i set it on heavy duty HOT with an extra rinse
-1 more extra warm rinse
thats it!

I've been doing a full warm wash on Delicate with some bleach, then a hot wash on Allergen setting with detergent, Arm and Hammer clean burst. Although I have been debating whether or not to try the whites setting. I'm just trying to get the water as hot as possible!!

Re: Washing dipes in an he front loader...

I actually add extra water through the detergent drawer during my main hot wash, then follow up with a warm wash on delicate with no detergent (my machine uses more water on the delicate cycle). Followed by an extra rinse. Good luck, it took me a while to perfect my routine, but now it's great!

Interesting! I have been having a hunch about my wetbags holding onto the soap. I'm going to try this!

Two full cycles. First normal on cold...little detergent. Second long hot with extra rinse with detergent to line 1. If suds rinse again. I add bleach (like 1 tbs) to hot wash every other cycle.
