I just did mine in the dishwasher today too. I didn't let it go through the dry cycle (I couldn't see the point). Of course I didn't get to it just before the dry cycle started but I don't think it would HURT your dipes.

I took them out and put them in the washer on spin... then the dryer.

So far, so good.

I had lots of suds and contemplated doing another run through the dishwasher but didn't..... We'll see how just one run affects the CDs.

Just wondering did you all run an empty DW load to make sure the suds were from the diapers and not residue from the DW it self. I know we used to run empty loads to clear out odd detergents and we'd get tons of suds.

Do not run the dry cycle unless it is the "no heat" one. The heated dry cycle could ruin your snaps/PUL, etc.

I did a total of 9 or 10 cycles with my dipes and was still getting some suds, so I am pretty sure the suds were coming from the dipes and not the machine. I would think if they were coming from the machine, the suds would have cleared out after 1 or 2 washes.

Okay, so- how do you all get over the concept that you are washing the dishes in the same place and not be at least icked out about it??

I think the super hot water will santize any nasties in there. I figure it is no worse than putting a plate that had raw chicken on it in with the glasses I drink out of.

FWIW, I washed my dipes first, then took them out of the washing machine and put them in the d/w... then back to the washing machine for a spin and in the dryer...

So I didn't put straight nasty dipes in the d/w....

As for the suds... another poster in another thread said that d/w detergent doesn't really produce suds.

I haven't had the guts to put my pockets inthe d/w.... I only put the inserts in.

I should probably give it a try though....

Hmmm... Maybe, but I'd figure there was a slight chance the raw chicken could have salmonella or whatever but a much higher risk of e-coli, etc. It was something for me to get over the germ factor in the washing machine when i was washing my cloths 8yrs ago. I really didnt want any of those germs accidently being left over to get in my other wash.
