Washing dirty diapers

Ugh! I left my wet bag with like 4 or 5 dirty diapers at a friends house last night. They live pretty far from me but I will see them Wednesday evening. Is it bad to wait to wash soiled diapers from Sunday on Thursday?

They will be fine, I have gone a numerous 4 day weekends where I have Wednesday -Sunday diapers, that I don't wash till Monday after work. They stain easier but other than that I don't think they are any worse.

Mine had mold on them. But two washes(first with bleach) did the trick!

Ok good! I am new to cloth diapering (my daughter is only 6 weeks old) so I wasn't sure! I figured they may need an extra wash but I can handle that! I just didn't want to drive 45 min to pick them up if it was ok to wait thanks for the advice!

I agree. It will be fine. If you have to do an extra hot wash, but it shouldn't take more than that. At one point I was only doing my CD laundry once a week and everything was OK. Now I do smaller loads more often just because a little more often is easier for me to manage.
