This^^
I dry pail and often leave 3 days and have no staining or smells. I always cold rinse first then full wash then 2 rinses and no probs :D We used to get awful smells wet pailing and I would definitely think there would be a mould risk ifleft in a bucket wet for 3 days.

And daaaaaaaaan saaaaaaaaaaf we just say mowldy innit!

I often rinse cycle the nappies (only wee ones) then add normal washing such as towels etc to make up a load. Is this bad?
