The thought of bacteria multiplying in my washing machine is grossing me out. Maybe I'll continue to rinse out the poopy diapers, but keep them in a separate dry pail. Then instead of an overnight soak I could go back to an hour max soak with a quick pre wash no detergent. Then my usual hot wash with detergent. The only thing that's probably been saving me is that my hot water is scalding when it comes out of the washing machine because it is so close to the hot water heater. I really only have trouble with stains with the fitteds where the elastic is. Hopefully the weather will shift soon and I can dry outdoors and have the sun to help me. The prefolds and flats always wash up beautifully. My DH wants me to keep the diapers looking nice so I can resell them to go towards the next size.

Re: Will soaking ruin my diapers?

what detergent are you using. Like a PP said with a good detergent stains should be rare.

Tide free and gentle. The prefolds and flats never stain. It's just the GMD WH that are giving me trouble.
