Washing Cloth Diapers in a Front Loader

May 17, 2010

111 Comments

I anticipated much struggle.  I’ve read the bazillions of stories of moms saying they wish they had a top loader just for their cloth diapers. I went back and forth over whether to buy a TL or FL when my old-trusty died. In the end, a FL made more sense (and they looked prettier :) […]

I invited you to join my laundry experiment back in late February.  I was committed. I was willing to bite the bullet for the sake of my readers.  You know, be all sacrificial and spare you the pain of wasting money.  Or, there was the possibility that I’d stumble upon the most natural way to […]

**contest closed** For a lot of you Hard Rock is going to be the answer to many, many prayers. Only those who have hard water know the headache that comes with doing laundry.

While I was on vacation this past week I saw a video posted on Facebook that I couldn’t wait to get home and share with you! I don’t endorse any one detergent as “the” cloth diaper detergent.  However, Kim of Rockin Green Soap is doing a fantastic job of proving the efficacy of her formula. […]

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 […]

The Diaper Sprayer is on My Never List

October 5, 2009

88 Comments

First, I’ll start off by saying that I am extremely easy to convince of something if your argument is good.   That being said feel free to redeem the Diaper Sprayer after I’m done ;) Why after 4 years of cloth diapering have I never purchased a diaper sprayer?

My Favorite Laundry Detergent for Cloth Diapers

December 18, 2008

41 Comments

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

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 […]

I’ve recently received a number of emails wondering how the Laundry Ball and Zorb are performing after repeated uses.

In the middle of June I wrote a post about removing buildup from your cloth diapers. In that post one of my suggestions was for the Laundry Ball. At the time of writing I didn’t have a need for any of the items. But after spending a weekend camping with no laundry facilities, I came […]
