    What do you do when a disposable diaper breaks in the washing machine! (Luckily was just wet.) Shall I put thru dryer and shake? Rinse again? Help, please!!

    I take the clothes outside and shake real good and then I vaccum out the washing machine. Wash again. Repeat if necc. I would not want that stuff in my dryer.

    The plastic from a disposable diaper would melt in the dryer. Don't put it in there.

    Especially when in my era when there were no disposables so it never happened to me before! My daughter is no help because she can't stop laughing and, of course, it never happened to her! Now my problem is that my vacuum is an upright! Guess I could tip the washer on its side! LOL I know, I'll get her to come fix it!

    shake when still wet, it comes off easier, at least that is true with tissues.

    Just keep rinsing. We use cloth diapers with disposables at night. DH doesn't change too many diapers so every now and then one gets mixed in. If you keep rinsing eventually all the little beads will disappear. I usually don't even see it until I go to put them in the dryer and find the empty "shell" of a diaper. Yuck!

    Don't vacuum it up!! My daughter had one in a pool and I gently tossed it over a gate and it exploded on the floor it ruined my vacuum. Try to get as much out as you can and run the washer and make sure you empty the trap but don't use the vacuum because the water will ruin it!!
