Ok .. So I'm going to start cloth diapering with my second child ( due in dec ) So I've been doing research on how to clean them and such. Well everything is saying I need to use hot water which makes since for germs and such. But we do not have a hot water hook up for our washer because its out in our garage. I'm not sure how I should wash the diapers now because I'm afraid bacteria will grow on the diapers or something of that nature. I'm just lost and dono what I should use how to go about washing them or anything. Any advice would be helpful !!
thank you <3
Well, I washed my prefolds in cold water for a while before they built up a stink when my son was small, like under a year and mostly on breastmilk. I would NOT wash toddler-real-food poop diapers in cold. I think you could try washing in cold and every two weeks or so just boil for a couple minutes on the stove or do a vinegar soak. I am not a germaphobe, though- the only reason I wash on hot is to kill stink.
