Does it make a difference if you do your last 2 rinses on hot or cold? Does one help them be more absorbent?

I would do warm. I always did 1 warm double rinse then 1 cold double rinse at the end. The hot or warm will get soap out better than cold. But, I didn't have hot as an option for rinses.

I see a lot of people say rinse on hot, but I haven't ever seen a machine irl that allows that. I wonder if I can find my very first stash shot.....

My "rinse" is a wash cycle with no detergent and since it allows hot washes I'd just set it to a hot wash cycle and it would at least partially rinse in hot. My washer only has cold rinses.

My machine has sizes small, medium, large, extra large and the temp cold, warm cold and then hot. I would love to see your very first stash shot :)



So the extra rinses do I just put it on rinse or does it need to go through the whole wash cycle? I put this one on rinse then thought well maybe it has to be on a regular wash cycle so it can adjatate better? So I ran and put it on the wash cycle lol.

It is funny to look at, because those in the bottom right were extra inserts and the snap in liners for my hybrids, which I HATED. In this, the only thing I had at the end were my prefolds in the bottom left, my BG Elementals and our Batman diaper. It's weird to see how our cloth diaper preferences evolved. Now to go search for others and compare lol

My wash cycles are all at least an hour or longer. A double rinse is 35 minutes lol. I can do quick wash, but it's literally a quick wash. Like 10 minutes of actual washing and rinses lol
