laundry question....split into two loads or wash one big load twice?

i have been a slacking on laundry and end up with a very full pail by the time i do it it's more of a load than i'm comfortable with for just one wash, and i've been splitting it in two, but then the loads are really small and i feel like it's a waste of my quarters (coin laundry).....what do you think would get them cleaner?

split them and do one regular wash

put them all in one wash but run the washer twice (i figure this way, i'll at least save on the dryer)

I would split into two loads. You're going to end up using the same amount of water and soap, and they'll most likely wash better in two loads. As far as the dry time, the more diapers in the dryer, the longer it'll take to dry anyway. You might as well split into two.

Split the loads up. If you do one big load they don't get as clean since they don't have as much room to agitate. **Don't ask how I know this, LOL!**
