Re: Will soaking ruin my diapers?
I would think in the long run it might cause issues since you are basically soaking them overnight in urine and poop particle water. Stains are not a big deal. I would not run a bunch of extra rinses and washes just to avoid them. That's a lot of water, energy and wear and tear on the diapers. Make sure your detergent is working for you. With the right detergent we get very few stains and those wash out eventually. Occasionally I have to sun one or two diapers and they are stain free with an hour. If it simplifies your wash and is working for you though then go ahead but it may shorten the life of the ones with elastic.
