I've heard of people putting their dirty diapers directly in the washer instead of having a diaper pail. When it's time to wash they run the load, wash their other laundry afterward, and then start using the washer as a diaper pail again.
Does anybody do this?

I haven't tried it, but couldn't for two reasons. reason one, the laundry is in the basement, and I'm not going down 1-2 flights of stairs and putting on shoes to do so every time we have a diaper change (have to go through the garage to get to the laundry). and when I do laundry it takes most of the day, and where would I put diapers while other laundry was going?

Oh. I thought you meant filling the washer up with cold water and throwing the diapers in, using it as a wet pail and spinning them out and then washing them. That's what I was talking about and I felt like it set odors in more than anything else. If you aren't soaking them and you don't need the machine for anything else, then it seems to me like an okay thing to do.
