visiting an he wash machine

we are visiting my dad this weekend and they have an he wash machine.

they also don't have all the cloth diaper luxuries that i'm used to (such as a mini shower). is there anything i should look out for w/ the he machine washing our dipes??

i'm tempted to buy a small package of disposables... but i really hate to spend the $$ if i don't have to.

I have an he. Just use 1/3 the amount of detergent that you are used to. That's it. You will miss your diaper sprayer but it is just for a few days.

Good Luck

I also wash my dipes in a he machine and I they all are a bit different in their features but my machine has a soak cycle that I use first before the wash w/extra rinse and it helps get them cleaner. Top loaders are the best for cloth IMO.
