Re: Who washes their diapers in WARM and not HOT?

I do a cold rinse and then a warm wash...once a month I do a hot wash. Otherwise my diapers are ok, no smells or anything.

I pre-rinse warm followed by a hot long cycle with detergent then I do a short cycle on warm to rinse. If I don't use all warm and hot them I get stinkies. My hot water heater isn't very hot though.

Hot wash here also. But the dryer may get hot enough to kill most germs. I feel like they are cleaner using hot.

I use warm, but our water heater is really hot. I cant really tell a diff between hot and warm, so i just use warm. Never had problems, cold rinse before and after.

Cold here. There is no hot water hook-up to the washer. I have never had any problems either.

Ok, I use WARM w/ COLD rinse. I dont do any extra rinses or anything. I use vinegar, but I dont do it in the rinse cycle, I pour it in when I pour in the detargent- works just as well and no vinegar smell. If we have a stain, we sun them. Other than that, typically NO stains, NO odors, etc. Seems to work fine here.... Oh & I air dry all diapers and covers, I dont use the dryer. I also use regular detargent and have no problems- I use 1/2 the amt though.

I did do the HEMP stuff on HOT HOT/Cold and then HOT in the dryer whenI first got them b/c they told me that they wouldnt work as well if you dont...

The way I look at it: What do you wash clothes in? Well, they probably pick up more germs, etc on their clothes than their heinys... Or heck, they probably EAT more germs throughout the day too for that matter...
