Pocket Dipes and Washing

Does everyone take their inserts out of the pocket diaper before washing or do you leave it in? Would it make much of a difference to not take it out before washing?

Also, how often do you wash your diapers/wipes?

Thanks!

Re: Pocket Dipes and Washing

Hey there!
I do take out the inserts from the diapers! I do it right as I'm putting them in the wet bag, that way I won't have to do it later! I wash my diapers about every other day.

I always take the inserts out before washing (actually before I put it in the pail). I was every other day (S,M,W,F).

I shake my insert out by holding onto the front of the dipe before I pail it.
I rinse/spin my dipes after about a day and a half, and then I leave these in the washer, and I wash every third day. I have a top loader that is my dedicated diaper washer!

I take them out...I wash every 1-3 days and it helps to take them out before putting them in the diaper pail or 3 days later its not the most pleasant smell to be touching! even with just pee...PU

I always take them out before washing. I tend to wash every 2 to 3 days. Depends on how much she goes though

Re: Pocket Dipes and Washing

I have mostly HH's, and I never take the inserts out - they fall out during washing. I do have a couple different kinds that have a different pocket style, and those I take out right when I put it in the pail.
