So, it sounds as if I wear them in the shower first, or perhaps put them in the shower under the stream while I sit on the toilet and do my morning....."thing" and then throw them in the wash after I get out. Its probably not a bad idea to just let it stay on the shower floor while Im in there. Wring it out (in the shower) and then to the washer.
Well, what kind of cloth diapers are you getting? My experience has been the thicker they are, the more likely youll need to double wash them. Also from my experience, presoaking is a good method to get caked on dirt/mud/clay off of things, but does nothing for getting a wet, pee soaked diaper cleaner. An extra rinse cycle helps. Enjoy, cloth is a whole different experience than disposables!
