1. RINSE (cold with no detergent)

2. WASH (hot with detergent)

3. RINSE Cold or Warm with 1 tablespoon of Dawn liquid soap (or 1 teaspoon for HE washers)

4. Repeat RINSING (with no Dawn or detergent) until you no longer see soap bubbles when the load is agitated.

5. DRY (line dry or air dry)

Don't confuse soap bubbles with agitation bubbles. To tell the difference, open the washer door during the rinse cycle and count to 5. If the bubbles have disappeared, they were agitation bubbles. If not, they are soap bubbles and you will need to run another rinse cycle.

Using the right detergent can cut down on how often you need to strip your diapers. Check out this list of Recommended Detergents for your cloth diapers -
