Since I live in a complex with shared back yards, I can't sun dry my diapers but when it gets warmer I will be drying them on a rack in the bathroom in front of a window.
It is so easy I can't believe I didn't do it earlier. I know that I haven't hit the tough stuff like having to strip them or replace an APLIX tab, but I have been impressed with how easy it is to take care of my diapers.
What is your routine?
Ok first off you must soak your dipes in COLD water....Use a bucket, use your tub, or use your good ole top loading washing machine (Jealous if you have one) but I am focusing on FL washing only at this time!
The tricks : I own a Samsung VRT, and what I've been doing is running a COLD/RINSE cycle first(No detergent yet) - ** add a full size bath towel soaked with water to the load of dipes before It starts first cycle. This adds to the weight of the load and "tricks" the washing machine into thinking more is loaded in and results in more COLD water gushing through your poopy dipes (YAY)!! Step 2 - Run a regular Hot wash with detergent (I like tiny bubbles detergent so far) http://www.amazon.com/Tiny-Bubbles-Detergent-Net-Yellow/dp/B002IA8MO6 Add extra rinse to cycle.
Step 3 - Try to check your dipes while in rinse cycle and make sure there are NO visible suds remaining...if there are still suds repeat step 1 only then Dry on low/normal heat or HANG dry if you can! If there were no suds remaining after step 2 then continue on to the drying step. **If staining remains hang your inserts out in the sun for a natural bleaching and cleaning (After washing in machine first of course) This has worked for me so far, but I will update as time proves if this is still the best cleaning routine for FL machines :) Happy Diapering!
