does anyone really store their diapers and inserts separately?

When I read some washing instructions, it often suggests storing them in separate diaper pails. I will be phasing out the one I use for sposies once my stash is full enough so I guess I can use that when the time comes, but do any of you store them separately? What is the purpose? Does a pee soaked insert do something to the diaper (like a pocket)? I wouldn't see how. I store mine dry anyway.

thanks!

I've never heard of one pail for inserts one for dipes.

Hmm. I wonder why they would suggest that?

I store everything in one pail---diapers, inserts, wipes, etc.

I don't store them in the pail sep but once folded I do..Mostly because it's easier. I mostly use my brand, so all of the inserts are the same

I throw all of my stuff in the pail together. Once washed and dried I go ahead and stuff all of my pockets at once, that way I do not have to stuff them for every diaper change.

I store all togehter and I never even unstuff my pockets. The washer always unstuffs them for me.

I dont usually stuff htem until i need them, I use mostly prefolds anyway. But if I am going out for hte night, I will leave hubby a few stuffed pockets to use

I do. The ph of urine isn't PUL-friendly. So if the insert is soaked it degrades the PUL. Just a little- but it adds up. So I shake out inserts, and drape the outer over the edge of the pail, same with covers. I wash outers/covers with my towels after a solo pre-rinse.

Re: does anyone really store their diapers and inserts separately?

I have a smaller pail that I use for all my covers and pockets if I use any (I only have a couple) and then I put everything else in the main pail. I usually wash them separately too since I wash my covers etc. on warm water on a gentler setting and washing everything else on hot. I also don't wash covers etc. as often, just when I run low but with diapers I wash every other day or so. I heard that if they were stored together the covers can start to pick up the stink of the dipes. I haven't experienced that though.

Never sorted. Even though I have been told pee is bad & water is bad I haven't seen any damage. I diaper 3 kids too, so it's not like I started a week ago and can't tell yet.

I don't. I've heard PUL and Pee don't mix well, but I've got some PUL covers and pockets that seem to have endured it. Now, on my 3rd kid, lol!
