I prepped my diapers last night before I went to bed. I was shocked at how much the Gerber flats shrunk. Before washing they were smaller than my already prepped Imse Vimse and after, well I don't think I could use any fold other than the pad fold for Sophia (my 22 month old). I was really worried I wouldn't make it through the day with the flats I had, however my little one wasn't wanting to eat so she used less diapers and Sophia is beginning to potty train.
After a diaper change I rinsed the diapers in the sink and hung them in the shower. I plan on only washing once a day after the kids go to bed. I actually like this method. It sure is better then a stinky diaper pail in the bathroom. What I don't like about it is I have to use a Clorox wipe to sanitize my sink. What my husband likes about it is I don't leave dirty diapers lying around. Shhh don't tell anyone I'm not always perfect at getting my diaper in the pail right away.

Hopefully these will be dry in the morning or we are in trouble!
My oldest daughter has a new habit. She likes to poop at nap time and stick her hand in her diaper.... I forgot for a minute I couldn't use my diaper sprayer. I turned the valve on and almost sprayed when I remembered so I dunked and began hand washing the diaper. It went easier then I thought, perhaps because this is the method I used when I first began cloth diapering. My only other hang up was when I forgot how to do the origami fold. I was trying to fold my already tiny Gerber flat and could not figure it out. I pulled out my Imse Vimse (the flat I learned this on) and did it with no problem. The shape of the Gerber is slightly different then the IV so it threw me off.
