Thanks to Noella for this Frugal Baby Tip!
If you need to soak the diapers, you could do that in the apartment before bringing them down to wash. use a large pot, boil (or heat to preferred temp) some water, and use whatever soap or detergent you use, and toss in the diapers, let soak for 1/2 to 1 hour and then bump excess water to facilitate bring them downstairs, and wash. If you have a downy ball, put vinegar in it to help rinse out the diapers. I don't often rinse my diapers twice unless I've put too much detergent in the washer.
I use 1 to 2 tbsp per load, I do diapers every day though, for full loads of laundry it's 2-3 tbsp (spoke to a chemist who said no one should need more then that).
