This is your wash routine-cliff notes version for the holiday season. Number one problem with stink: wrong detergent or wrong first step in wash routine. If you are using an initial cold prerinse or presoak, cut it out of the routine. Hot or warm is best, you do not “cook” in stains,cold water in 99 out of 100 cases will work against you in getting diapers clean. If you do not have a warm or hot prerinse, skip it and go to your hot wash cycle. Really, non believers give it a try, too many of you are doing an entire cold/cold cycle before a cold/hot cycle and you are wasting time and water. Worst case scenario, you go back to your old routine, right? Every single detergent on the planet, including Planet (ho ho ho humor there!) will leave something behind. Whe you hit that “something” with cold water, you cool the waxy residues before your hot water can help melt it out. Think of a cooling candle here locked around feces and urine. Warm or hot water loosens those residues, and lets the hot wash cycle and detergent do the job to clean your diapers.
