Re: Does anyone NOT do a 3 cycle wash?

[QUOTE=belladonna]I do a hot wash/cold rinse & sometimes an extra cold rinse. That's it, plenty clean.

I do the same thing on my front loader using a little bit of Allens. If it's particularly stinky I'll run a short hot cycle without detergent and then do my normal routine. I don't worry too much about stains though. The BF poo stains I get occassionally usually are gone after the next few washes and I'm not as concerned as I first was that they are bright white each time I put them on. They're diapers, after all!

Re: Does anyone NOT do a 3 cycle wash?

I spray all the poop off with my sprayer so I just do a full heavy soil hot wash/cold rinse and then a full light soil cold wash/cold rinse. I did find that if I do a cold rinse first the house doesn't smell so much like pee when the full hot wash is aggitating so I will do a cold rinse first when Dh is around on the weekends.

I do hot wash/cold rinse and then sometimes an extra rinse and I've never had a build-up issue with my dipes.
