Who uses your washer as a wet pail?

We have an old laundry basket that I can use as a dry pail, and it's got a waterproof liner that fits in it and a flip top. (Only thing is it's rather large...) But I've read that people LOVE to use your washer as a wetpail because you get the best of both worlds. So if you do it, how do you do it? Does it cut at any stink? Does soaking the dipes wear 'em out quicker? (We have pockets and AIOs...the only thing I'd be adding in the soak I think would be TTO and we'd wash AT LEAST every other day.)

So spill the beans...how do you do it?

I don't know how that would work unless you had an extra washing machine. When would you do any of your other laundry? I would love to hear how someone does this. It sounds good to let them soak.

Re: Who uses your washer as a wet pail?

what i usually hear ppl talking about doing is tossing all the poopy diapers in overnight & letting them sit. and then finishing off the rest of the wash process the next day.

there was a thread recently (like in the last week) about ppl who use a wet pail rather than a dry pail....i think i'm going to stick with dry pail myself....i haven't had any major issues with staining (very minor & sunnable only) thankfully.

Well, we usually only have two or three loads a week. And those aren't full loads to boot either, just a load of whites and a load of darks (and some weeks towels and other weeks The Husband's flight suits) so we have room to even add Abby's clothes. I do laundry on Mondays... PunkinButt has some info on how it's done: http://www.punkinbutt.com/easy_wash_...g%20wet%20pail I'm just wondering if anyone else does it.
