I tie the knot approximately in the middle of the strings and I usually don't wash more than 3 of those at a time since I have a lot of other diapers (mostly fitteds made by me).  I assume you use the same type of machine (i.e. a front-loading one) as I do since I see that you live in Germany.   Bamboo is more absorbent than cotton, but it also depends on the type of bamboo fabric.  I would recommend trying bamboo fleece that weighs at least 16 ounces per yard.  Keep in...

If it's not "hygienic" then what do they think about washing underwear? Flats are great for washing and drying.  The easiest way to use them is to pad fold them and use them with a well-fitting cover. It's not a lot of extra work. I'm cloth diapering my second now (and doing some ECing) and it's not a huge amount of work.  I do find the ECing a bit time consuming, but it will save you some time later since you won't have to deal with toddler potty training.  Just don't...
