Anyone put a few spoons of baking soda with diapers

Hi was wondering if any mamas used baking soda along with your detergent thinking of putting a few tablespoons in my diaper wash.

I used to I would occasionally run a baking soda wash and add vinegar to the rinse, to refresh them once in a while

I use baking soda in my pre-rinse to neutralize the urine.

I used to put it in a prerinse, and vinegar in the rinse. It was popular a while back. I don't know that it really made a difference. I don't do either anymore, and don't do a prerinse (don't have issues, and really don't have time). I do use bleach now, which was a huge no-no back then.

It didn't cause any issues with my diapers, so there's no harm to trying it.
