I ruined my cloth diapers!

January 14, 2010

Well, perhaps “ruined” is a slight exaggeration.  After all, they are still usable.  So what’s wrong with them? THEY’RE ALL PINK!! And I have a boy. But, they still hold pee and poop so all is not lost. However, that was no consolation to me the first 48 hrs after my disaster.  The Flip and […]

This past summer I introduced you to Rockin Green Cloth Diaper Detergent.  Kim kindly sent me some samples and I eagerly used them all up.  I was pleased: clothes smelled clean, cloth diapers smelled clean, no rashes occurred… two thumbs up. However, after the samples were gone I went back to using my Kirkland’s Environmentally […]

3 ways to ward off cloth diaper frustration

September 26, 2009

Don’t feel bad.  Even the most die-hard, committed cloth diaper mamas reach the point of wanting to give it all up. For the most part cloth diapering is merely another task like unloading the dishwasher or setting the table.  It’s just something that is done second nature. But, there are those days when everything routine […]

I had to bleach my cloth diapers

August 11, 2009

UGH! I knew it would happen.  On Friday I packed a suitcase for my family of 6 to go stay overnight at my mother-in-law’s house for a family reunion on Saturday.  I changed Sterling’s diaper and tossed it in the pail.  Normally, I quickly walk away but this time I had a lingering thought… “I […]

How to Disinfect Cloth Diapers Without Bleach

Lucky for us the world seems to be on an “all-things-natural” kick.  This means more information and more products available for us. Every known manufacturer of cleaning products now offers a “green” alternative.  This is great when it comes to cleaning the bathtub, sinks and windows.  But what about the laundry?  How can we get […]

Overwhelmed? Cloth Diapers 101

January 5, 2009

I love the story my pastor tells about Vince Lombardi.  After the Packers had lost 3 or 4 games in a row, Vince meets with his players in the locker room, holds up the football and says, “This is a football.” Mamas, I’m starting at the basics today.  I have been guilty of getting side-tracked […]

My Favorite Laundry Detergent for Cloth Diapers

December 18, 2008

When it comes to cloth diapering, washing is the number one sand trap.  I’ve seen moms who’ve been cloth diapering for years suddenly panic over their washing routine. If I had a dime for every washing combination out there I’d certainly be able to afford an entire stash of Goodmamas! After 3 years of washing […]

To Wet or Dry Pail It…That Is The Question

October 18, 2008

25 Comments

I have always used a dry pail.  Even written about how I would never use a wet pail.  Until now. The stinkiness just got to be too much.  My husband and oldest daughter complained incessantly about the smell of Paisley’s diapers.  Haley (my oldest) was always calling for me to change Paisley’s “stinky pee” when […]
