How do you wash your breast pads, for those who use cloth...

Okay, that question is obviously for those who use cloth.

I've always washed mine with the other laundry, but then I started thinking it might affect the absorbtion (sp?), just like with diapers. So what do you do?

I wash them with the diapers, that way I know what detergent is going on them and we don't have any build up issue

Mine are wool-backed, so they get washed by hand usually when I wash woolies for dd.

Hmm I've never even thought of that before! I usually wash them with the regular laundry, but I might have to switch now. It makes sense to wash them with the diapers since they're made out of the same stuff....

Mine (2 pair) are all wool, so I've just been rinsing with cold water when they get stiff from my leaking. I am going to get 2-3 more pair though for a better rotation.

I just have cotton ones that I just toss in my regular laundry. I'm a super leaker anyway, so I always soak mine. I just have 6 pairs so I always have clean ones!
