For all PUL or water-proof covers, wash and dry before use (hang to dry - it's a great option to help conserve energy and can extend the life of the diaper!)
Q: WHERE DO I KEEP THE DIRTY DIAPERS?
A: A dry Diaper Pail (kitchen garbage pail works great), or waterproof bag (a.k.a. wet/dry bag)
A: We would recommend at least every other day, to keep bacteria from forming. Also, it would depend on the amount of diapers you have
A: We don't recommend it, especially in the initial rinse.
Happy cloth diapering! and Happy washing!
