DS is still EBF so we just dump the poopies in the dry pail and do a cold wash first. Sometimes we still get staining, but I just sun them out! Not sure what we're going to do when we start solids though!
Yep, I use fleece liners in stuff that isn't already fleeced lined and that cuts down on any staining. Actually, dd is 10 months and still mostly bf, so I have only had to worry about solid poop removal maybe 6-8 times so far.
I used to just dry pail them but then when I had one solid poop I rinsed it off in the laundry room sink.. and now even when it's just bf poop (like if she hasn't eaten solids in a couple days and I get to reminisce!) I still rinse it because I've had a taste for it and it's not so bad coming off fleece. Then I wring it out really good and toss it in the dry pail.
I used to just toss them in the dry pail & do a cold rinse, then a hot wash. Now, I'll rinse them out in the toilet, wring them out, and put them in a separate pail. Don't really know why, but I can't wash poopy ones with the "just wet" ones anymore.
I rinse with my minisprayer then toss in a dry pail. then throw them in the wash on hot.... rinsing with the minisprayer seems to eliminate the need for the cold wash first so far. Course she is only 19 days so things may change as she gets bigger, LOL. But so far so good.. no stains
We go from the baby to the dry pail to the washing machine. I originally tried to rinse the diapers off, but couldn't get the poop off the diaper very well and found that sometimes it made the stains set in deeper. I wash everyday, so we don't usually have too much of a problem. If a stain sets in, I just sun them out on our window seat and they are gone in less than an hour.
Tossed into the dry pail. When I have time, I try to let that load soak for a couple of hours or overnight in cold water (nothing added). That usually takes care of any stains. If I don't have time to soak, they usually come clean within a couple washes or I'll lay them in the sun for a little while.
Even at nine months and with some solids, unless the poos are able to roll off (then we just roll them into the toilet and flush) they go into the dry pail then the washing machine. I just can't be bothered to dunk right now. We've had no problems so far.
I'm pretty much on the same idea as everyone elese, we are EBF (only 3.5 months) and we just put the diaper in a dry pail, cold pre-wash, HOT wash, 2 rinses... we have some stains on my VB (so so sad) so next time i'm at walmart i'm going to get some fleese to cut up for linners in them. B/C my sugar peas that have fleese linned snap ins hardly ever show the stains, so i agree that the fleese linners would really help!
