I am really hoping to CD, and I'm hoping you can help me! The environmental benefits are the key motivating factor for us, but I'm really worried about having issues with not getting the diapers clean. Unfortunately we have HE front loaders, which I've read are more problematic to get the diapers clean. To make matters more difficult, I don't have a sense of smell, and while DH does, he is in the military and will sometimes be gone for weeks at a time, so if I end up having a build up issue I'd have no way to know (aside from asking a random friend who comes over to smell my "clean" diapers I guess but I'd prefer not to do that!). I was kind of assuming that if I washed the diapers with the right cycle and they looked clean, I wouldn't have to worry about smell or ammonia build up issues.
This doesn't have to be a deal breaker, right? Can I figure out a routine with my HE washer that gets the diapers clean/smell free pretty quickly (i.e. in a couple weeks time while DH is home, so that I can continue the same process while he's gone)? Are there particular types of CDs that are better for HE front loaders? I was hoping to use AIOs just because they seem so easy to use and DH seems more willing to help that way, but if AIOs are a bad idea in my situation I'll definitely reconsider!
Thanks for your help!
