These were the instructions that came with my diapers:
Regular wash routine:

If soiled, use the mini-shower to remove poop from diaper. ...
Toss into a dry pail; wash every day or every other day.
Wash no more than 12 - 18 diapers at a time.
Use your washer's highest water level.
Pre-rinse with cold water and no detergent.
Use a regular hot water cycle and Tide (not Tide Free).

I think the hot water is important to sanitize the diaper.
