Precaution on washing in Hot!

Please read instruction from manufacturer on how to wash the diaper even it is suggested to wash in hot. Some will suggest initial wash in hot but NOT every subsequent wash in HOT too!

Washing in hot too frequent will cause the diaper to wear off faster, meaning reduce the life span of the diaper. So, be careful and check again and again if you have a few different types of diapers from different manufacturers/brands.

Hot water can remove smell but don't overdo it... and NEVER soak too long in hot water! Mostly soak in cold is alright even with hemp material.
Pre-wash in cold is good to get rid of stubborn smell.

Just to add to Sharine's comment:
Recommended temperature for "hot" is between 60-80 Celcius. Not at boiling point , specially for PUL fabric.
Cold water will work better to soak to help reduce stains. Since hot water will help to "set" the stain into the fabric.
If your diapers start to smell very strong after bb pee on it. It might have detergent build up. In this case a hot soak might be helpful.
But again don't over soak for too long.
