OrchideZ - I am glad to hear the good review about the LG! We were just looking at them yesterday....Sears has a 25% off sale through today, unfortunately, we don't have the $$ today I hope we can get one though!! Even if it's not an all in one
We love it so.
ps- funny story relating to diapers and wash...I could not find my purse today for anything. I looked everywhere. Everywhere! Then tonight I was doing the diapers and when I went to dump the dirty diaper bin into the washer, I heard a distinctive jingle jangle of change, realized my purse was in the hamper thanks to my toddler. I guess he thought it needed a good wash.
**My son speaking about bleach is a very very fair towhead with sensitive skin...his daddy is a strawberry blonde who also is very sensitive. That is the main reason we do no PUL and only use organic fabrics for his diapers and exclusively wool covers as well as wool sleeping pads. We only bathe him in Weleda Calendula wash. You get the picture.
Anyway, we exclusively used our diaper service for his first 4 months and he NEVER had a rash or a hint of a problem. We would not have stayed with it had there been any issue or smells. I am very sensitive to smells and never detected any hint of bleach. I asked them and they said according to federal laws, they must sanitize to standards b/c diapers are washed all together and must be absolutely clean. They use the bleach earlier on and there are over 11 steps to their wash process. The bleach is rinsed out and then rinsed out and then rinsed out...etc. etc. you get the point. Not the same at all as it would be for someone to use bleach at home in a small load.
I guess we will just have to disagree on this point b/c frankly, I would not be comfortable with using a "green diaper service" if there is even such a thing legally. Just b/c what is fine when it involves only my son's excrement at home is one thing but in huge bins and bins of a bunch of people's poopy diapers, is quite another. I would especially want the diapers to be sanitized and clean when it comes to mixing your baby's poop with other poop.
The diapers we get are of the softest cotton ever and so fresh and immaculate...we will be using them again for our Pixie come May.
