We also will be be using CDs. I'm not hip with all the diaper lingo, :p , but I've used those regular ol' prefolds with all 6 of my children. And regular ol' diaper covers I've picked up here and there used, and ordered a couple from Amazon.
We had a diaper svc. for a couple of our children. I've washed the rest. To deal with the stink issue, I've always kept the diaper pail outside. I can't imagine keeping it in the house! But I've also never done any kind of diaper rinsing. I just take the dirty diap straight off the child (of any age), and toss it into the diaper pail. When I wash them I first do a rinse cycle on hot, then a cycle on the "heavy duty" setting with detergent and Sun Oxygen cleaner on warm. Finally I do another rinse on cool with around a cup of vinegar. I never fill the washer all the way full -never more than 3/4 of the way. But I use the highest water setting, for a large load. I never wash them with anything else. My experience (because I don't rinse the diapers myself before washing them, probably) is that there's some undigested stuff in the washer after washing my toddler's diaps. Like nuts & seeds from our granola, or peanuts. I just wipe out the inside of the washer with a blob of dryer lint from the garbage can right next to the washer and throw it away. The dryer lint trap catches the rest. It's not a big deal, it's easy to clean up, and they are clean nuts and seeds, lol, but I'd rather not wash our other clothes with that.
The diaper pail is right outside our back door so it's easy to open the door and toss in the diaps. When we lived in apartments we had a small balcony. I'd keep the pail there on the balcony.
I made our laundry soap for many years but then my last baby had terrible reactions to her diaps- bad rashes. I tried switching to Country Save laundry detergent and that cured her rashy troubles, so now we just use that for all our laundry.
I love hanging them on the line to dry in the summer- the sun bleaches them sooo nicely!
We use cloth wipes as well. I toss them in & wash them with the diapers.
I've not yet ever used mama cloth, just the regular chemical laden plastic horrors from the grocery store. I've had so few periods in the past many years that I've not stressed about it too much..... but once I feel we're done having babies, I'm pretty sure I'll make the switch. I ceased using tampons long ago because I didn't want to be putting those chemicals up there!
