How long have you been CDing? 2 years

How do you like it? I love it, but I am definitely sick of changing diapers!!! I'm so glad I don't throw away all those disposables anymore!!

Why do you cloth diaper? Environment, health for the baby, economic

What kind of dipes are in your stash? fitteds, pockets, prefolds, covers

What's your favorite diaper/diaper combo? Prefolds with a Thirsties cover for DS3; Kushies fitteds with fleece cover for DS2

What kind of wipes do you use? cloth (baby washcloths and homemade wipes)

What kind of diaper solution do you use? water and tea tree oil, or just water in a spray bottle

What is your overnight system? fuzzi bunz with trifolded prefold (for DS2 and DS3)

Do you/how do you rinse off your CD before pailing them? DS3's go straight in the pail, b/c he's mostly breastfed at this point; DS2's we scrape with a spatula or just dump and shake, and then it's into the pail

What kind of pail system do you have? trash can with a large wet bag


What is your wash routine? (how you wash, what detergent/additives, how often, how do you dry?) Hot rinse, hot wash with purex free and clear detergent, sometimes dawn, sometimes tea tree oil; cold rinse, sometimes with vinegar. I strip with dawn about once a month

And what one CD item would you purchase if money were no object? I would probably have the boys in only FBs ALL THE TIME if money weren't an object. They're so simple, so classic, and work so well.

SAHM to DS1 (8/5/05), DS2 (3/20/07), DS3 (11/26/08), D?4 (Aug 2010) and (4/06) We CD, get adjusted , don't vax, and don't circ (post DS1.)

How long have you been CDing?A little over 3 years. I had two in diapers for a few months. I also took a few hiatuses with sposies while life was relaly hectic, or on vacation or something, but never longer than 2 weeks or so.

How do you like it? Sometimes I like it, sometimes I hate it. Overall I like it better but I've modified things to make it easier on myself. I do sposies now while out, because it's easier for me to wrangle 2 little ones while being pregnant and just shoving a sposie in my pocket.

Why do you cloth diaper?I started because I didn't want chemicals on DS, and because it was cute. Now I do it because I've spent hundreds on my stash and feel guilty if I don't

What kind of dipes are in your stash? Right now it's mostly Sticky Peas NRSS, some prefolds, a few Dunk -n- Fluff fitteds. I have 3 AIO's that I like.

What's your favorite diaper/diaper combo?Well, the problem is I change my mind all the time. Like I only used fitteds, then pinnable fitteds and now I'm totally wishing I had AIO's. If I could I'd switch right now to all Sposoeasy's. But DS has a crazy long rise and I have trouble finding diapers that fit him well unless I special order them.

What kind of wipes do you use?I use cloth wipes.

What kind of diaper solution do you use? A wipe solution I bought off of hyena cart. I think its like, monkey butts or monkey toes or something. I've tried a billion and these are awesome and easy and I love them so.

What is your overnight system?Sposies. It took me 15 months to get DS to sleep longer than 2 hours, and I was sick of him waking up with a red bottom.

Do you/how do you rinse off your CD before pailing them?I have a diaper sprayer I use on poop.

What kind of pail system do you have?I use a dry pail, with a wet bag inside of a giant garbage can. I've never had smell issues.

What is your wash routine? (how you wash, what detergent/additives, how often, how do you dry?)I do a cold soak with nothing (sometimes vinegar but rarely). Then I do a hot wash cycle with Tide up to the 1 line and then I do 1 hot wash cycle with nothing. I've used all the natural stuff and always had stink issues. I haven't ever since using Tide. I machine dry on low.

And what one CD item would you purchase if money were no object? Probably just the ability to buy whatever diapers I wanted and redo my stash whenever I wanted.

How long have you been CDing?
Since my LO was one week old (he's 4 months now)

How do you like it?
Love it!

Why do you cloth diaper?
Cloth diapers just seem...normal to me. Disposable diapers seem odd. Plus, we're not adding all those diapers to landfills. I also hate that weird disposable diaper smell.


What kind of dipes are in your stash?
Prefolds, Thirsties covers, some BumGenius diapers I never use, a variety of doublers for the prefolds, a Dancing Bears fleece cover, and one experimental Happy Hempy fitted (we're working on finding a new nighttime system).


What's your favorite diaper/diaper combo?
Prefold + Thirsties cover


What kind of wipes do you use?
Cut up Viva paper towels (so soft!)

What kind of diaper solution do you use?
Just water...room temperature

What is your overnight system?
Experimenting...either larger prefold in a larger Thirsties cover with a hemp doubler, or a hemp fitted under a fleece soaker.

Do you/how do you rinse off your CD before pailing them?
No rinsing...still EBF so no need.

What kind of pail system do you have?
Dry pail. Planet Wise pail liner in a big lidded trash can.

What is your wash routine? (how you wash, what detergent/additives, how often, how do you dry?)
I wash most days...but skip a day here or there. I do a cold water rinse cycle, then add detergent (Country Save powder) and do a hot water wash with an extra rinse.


And what one CD item would you purchase if money were no object?
Lots of fitted hemp or bamboo diapers.

How long have you been CDing? 3 months

How do you like it? LOVE it

Why do you cloth diaper? It's cheaper and healthier.

What kind of dipes are in your stash? Pockets. Swaddlebees and Blueberries - combination of OS and sized, I also have a couple of BG's that are converted to snaps.

What's your favorite diaper/diaper combo? Size medium swaddlebees pocket dipe with an econappi hemp insert.

What kind of wipes do you use? Disposable, but only because I had bought a huge box of them right before we switched to cloth and want to use them up.

What is your overnight system? Swaddlebees OS with aplix and an econappi hemp insert.

Do you/how do you rinse off your CD before pailing them? Spatula the poo into the toilet and then put them in a bucket with water.

What kind of pail system do you have? Wetbag for the wet ones and a bucket of water for the dirties.

What is your wash routine? (how you wash, what detergent/additives, how often, how do you dry?) I wash every other night after she goes to bed. I use Tide Free in hot water, and two cold rinses. I hang them to dry on a rack under the kitchen ceiling fan and they are dry by morning.

And what one CD item would you purchase if money were no object? I would make my whole stash sized instead of one size. I love the fact that you can use the OS longer, they just don't fit her as well (she's a skinny minny) and so there's lots of bulk in the front when she wears those. My DH also gets a little overwhelmed by all the snaps!

How long have you been CDing? almost 2 years (started when older dd was about 15 months old)

How do you like it? I really like it. Sometimes I get sick of dealing with gross poopy diapers and I've gone back to dispoables a few times, but never for very long (less than a whole day). I'm always reminded pretty quickly that sposies are gross in so many ways and cloth is so much nicer!

Why do you cloth diaper? I like to avoid the chemicals in sposies, reduce landfill waste, and I don't like spending money on something that is going to get thrown away and take hundreds of years to break down.

What kind of dipes are in your stash? Mostly prefolds. They're my favorite. I also have some flats from GMD that I love, they're so versatile! And I have a dozen Fuzzi Bunz that I hated with older dd, but I'm beginning to like them with younger dd. I use them when we're out, they're a little easier to deal with in public places. But I really prefer cotton. I also have some hemp doublers that I use quite often with both the pf's and the FB's. For covers we use thirsties, bummis whisper pull-ons, and little g pants (with a trifolded pf). I also have some wool that I rarely use because I hate washing it. I'd love to get some wool longies for winter-time pajama pants though.

What's your favorite diaper/diaper combo? I like a pinned cotton pf under a simple nylon pull-on cover or a thirsties cover, depending on the outfit dd is wearing. When we go out I recently started using a Fuzzi Bunz stuffed with a folded flat and a hemp doubler--absorbant but trim.

What kind of wipes do you use? Disposable (Target brand, sensitive) I tried cloth wipes so many times, but no matter what kind I use they irritate dd's skin and she cries when I wipe her. The same thing happened with older dd.

What kind of diaper solution do you use? N/A

What is your overnight system? A toddler pf with an infant pf trifolded inside like a doubler. The toddler pf gets pinned and I cover it with a nylon pull-on pant (bummis) or a thirsties.

Do you/how do you rinse off your CD before pailing them? I dunk/swish in the toilet when necessary. I used to have a sprayer but it's overspray made a gross, poopy-water mess in my bathroom. YUCK!! Dunking really isn't that bad.

What kind of pail system do you have? Dry pail--I use a medium-size trash can with a lid, lined with a pail liner/wet bag (bummis large)

What is your wash routine? (how you wash, what detergent/additives, how often, how do you dry?) I wash every day. I do a cold rinse, a hot wash with Purex Free and Clear and OxiClean Free and Clear, and an extra warm rinse. Then they go in the dryer on medium.

And what one CD item would you purchase if money were no object? I'd get 2 or 3dozen SposoEasy AIO's or bumGenius organic cotton AIO's. I'd LOVE to have some AIO's that have cotton against my dd's skin, and have enough for full-time use!!

How long have you been CDing? Just a few weeks. DS is 5 weeks old and I did sposies for the first 2 weeks while I was adjusting.

How do you like it? Love it! There's so many awesome diapers out there, it's going to be my new shopping obsession whenever I have a few extra bucks

Why do you cloth diaper? Better for baby, better for the environment, cheaper than buying gross disposables every other day

What kind of dipes are in your stash? prefolds, bummis whisper covers, bumgenius os, rump-a-rooz os, kissaluvs fitteds, a few locally made diapers (fitteds, os)

What's your favorite diaper/diaper combo? I am currently in love with my rump-a-rooz

What kind of wipes do you use? I make my own with viva paper towels

What kind of diaper solution do you use? I make my own with hot water, dr. bronner's and grapeseed oil. Sometimes I add a little tea tree oil or rosewater concentrate.

What is your overnight system? Generally just an aoi. DS still wakes up a couple times at night so we don't have a leak problem

Do you/how do you rinse off your CD before pailing them? I usually rinse in the tub then let them soak

What kind of pail system do you have? Dry pail with wet bag, but most of my dipes soak in the tub

What is your wash routine? (how you wash, what detergent/additives, how often, how do you dry?) Cal-Ben Seafoam all natural soap, hot wash with an extra rinse. I do my cold pre-soak in the tub.

And what one CD item would you purchase if money were no object? Rump-a-rooz!

Why do you cloth diaper? My oldest broke in a rash anytime he was in a sposie. I hate running out of stuff and I'd rather do laundry then go to the store. They're cute and better for the planet.

What kind of dipes are in your stash? Fitteds and prefolds

What's your favorite diaper/diaper combo? prefolds and wool

What kind of wipes do you use? both cloth and disposable

What kind of diaper solution do you use? water with a squirt of oil and a squirt of baby wash

What is your overnight system? the same as the daytime

Do you/how do you rinse off your CD before pailing them? dunk and swish

What kind of pail system do you have? just a regular diaper pail from Target

What is your wash routine? (how you wash, what detergent/additives, how often, how do you dry?) cold rinse, hot wash with a little soap and borax, cold rinse with vinegar, line dry

And what one CD item would you purchase if money were no object?
I have no idea, I'm happy with my stash. I'd say wool, but all I really need is the time to knit.

What kind of dipes are in your stash? prefolds (which we don't use), fitteds, covers, AIOS, and some AIO2s

What's your favorite diaper/diaper combo? Right now I prefer either my Thirsties fitteds or Cricketts with my Thirsties cover

What kind of wipes do you use? Washcloths while home and sposies while out

What kind of diaper solution do you use? A homemade one with water a dash of Burt's Bee's Apricot oil and a dash of baby wash

What is your overnight system? Right now we just use BG OS AIO with 3 microfiber inserts. DS is a heavy wetter so I'm sure we're going to have to tweak this system soon

Do you/how do you rinse off your CD before pailing them? sometimes I rinse the poo sometimes not since its just bm poo

What kind of pail system do you have? We use a trash can with a Bummis wet bag

What is your wash routine? (how you wash, what detergent/additives, how often, how do you dry?) A hot pre wash (with no soap), a hot wash on sanitary cycle using Tide HE powder detergent filled to the 1 line, followed by 2 extra rinses. Then dry on medium.

How long have you been CDing? Not very long. I think only since about May.

How do you like it? I like it. I wish I had started earlier instead of waiting until I had three kids and child #2 was 2.5 years old.

Why do you cloth diaper? Money. Less waste. Less chemicals.

What kind of dipes are in your stash? I haven't settled on what works best so I have a variety. I mostly have FB (for 2.5 year old) and Gro Baby (for 8 month old). I have a few BG and HH as well. There are things I like and dislike about all of them.

What's your favorite diaper/diaper combo? I think the FB and Gro Baby. There are things I like and dislike about each of them. I like the pocket of the FB but aplix of the Gro Baby. If I could combine the two, it would be great!

What kind of wipes do you use? I still use disposable wipes.

What kind of diaper solution do you use? N/A

What is your overnight system? Still use disposables at night

Do you/how do you rinse off your CD before pailing them? Not usually unless it's a really poopy diaper.

What kind of pail system do you have? I have a regular laundry hamper with a pail liner.

What is your wash routine? (how you wash, what detergent/additives, how often, how do you dry?) I wash about every two days. I use Charlie's Soap for now but it's the only thing I've bought. I may try another brand when it runs out. I put most of the diapers and liners in the dryer. The only ones I don't are the Gro Baby shells and I hang those to dry. The Gro Baby liners don't dry in one cycle so I run them once and hang to dry the rest of the way.

And what one CD item would you purchase if money were no object? I am not sure. I would like a really good travel wet bag for the diaper bag but haven't gotten around to buying it. They aren't that expensive so I'm not sure if that's a good answer. My other thing I would buy would be enough diapers to last longer between washes.

I recently changed my username, but I still say "Hello" to all those who know me in real life! Hi P, S, T and K!

How long have you been CDing? One year now!

How do you like it? I love it. No issues.

Why do you cloth diaper? Mostly because I like cloth on my baby, not plastic and gel.

What kind of dipes are in your stash? Lots of prefolds and covers, including wool, some BG 3.0, lots of Swaddlebees EcoNappis, a few FuzziBunz, and a few WAHM dipes.

What's your favorite diaper/diaper combo? I love prefolds with snappi's and covers, especially wool. My favorite go-out/daycare diaper is the EcoNappi, they're all natural cotton velour and hemp and hold up really, really well. No wear and tear at a year and the size looks like it will be larger than the BG 3.0.

What kind of wipes do you use? Baby washcloths, the Gerber micro terry ones. Super cheap and easy.

What kind of diaper solution do you use? Water with a bit of Burt's Bees babywash in the Peri bottle.

What is your overnight system? A premium prefold and Bummi's cover.

Do you/how do you rinse off your CD before pailing them? Nope. Plop off poop, that's it.

What kind of pail system do you have? Just a regular pail. I put a bit of baking soda in the bottom.

What is your wash routine? (how you wash, what detergent/additives, how often, how do you dry?) I wash every 3 days. One hot wash cycle, no soap. Hot wash with 1/2 scoop Country Save (top loader). Hot wash no soap. Tumble dry. (no stink!)

And what one CD item would you purchase if money were no object?
Hmmm. I think I'd buy just more fun diapers. More tie dyed prefolds, some more handknitted soakers and longies, Bamboo prefolds, etc.

[B]How long have you been CDing? four and a half years

How do you like it? It's been easier than we thought

Why do you cloth diaper? Financial, mostly, although environmental reasons feel good, too. And then there's the knowledge that diaper blow outs are more common for us when we do use a disposible...

What kind of dipes are in your stash? Mother ease one size
What's your favorite diaper/diaper combo?
The only thing I know is the ME with a air flow cover

What kind of wipes do you use? I used cloth wipes with the boys for about a year, but with my youngest I've always used the unscented store brand wipes.

What kind of diaper solution do you use? None

What is your overnight system? The boys used a ME stay dry with liner. With my youngest, I use a disposible! Oh, the shame.

Do you/how do you rinse off your CD before pailing them? With the diaper sprayer (really just a sink sprayer) attached to the toilet.

What kind of pail system do you have? I use a 5 gallon bucket (dry)

What is your wash routine? (how you wash, what detergent/additives, how often, how do you dry?) Warm rinse with vinegar. Hot wash with tiny amt. of detergent, vinegar rinse. second wash cycle, no detergent. Additional rinse if suds remain. It's a HE maytag washer. I can go quite a few days between washing, as I have a huge stash of diapers thanks to the twins. I usually dry in the dryer, but I have line dried.

And what one CD item would you purchase if money were no object? night time training pants for twin still wetting at night.

How long have you been CDing?

5 years.

How do you like it?

Love it.

Why do you cloth diaper?

$$$

What kind of dipes are in your stash?

mostly prefolds and fitteds with a variety of wool and nylon and PUL covers. We have some pockets and some AIOs, too.

What's your favorite diaper/diaper combo?

A motherease fitted with a folded infant prefold inside, under a Disana wool pull-on.

What kind of wipes do you use?

Kissaluvs terry washcloths

What kind of diaper solution do you use?


Don't

What is your overnight system?

Very Baby Simply Nights under handknit wool

Do you/how do you rinse off your CD before pailing them?


Don't.

What kind of pail system do you have?

trash cans with nylon bags; one upstairs and one down

What is your wash routine? (how you wash, what detergent/additives, how often, how do you dry?)

I use whatever detergent is on sale, although not Tide. I wash these days only once a week, because my kiddos are out of dipes during the day, but for awhile I had three in dipes, and then I washed every day. I dry every time I wash-- that question makes no sense.

And what one CD item would you purchase if money were no object?

I wouldn't, but that's only because we're in our final few months of diapers. My youngest are 2 1/2 and in undies all day. What I really wish for is a new puddle pad for DS's bed for when he's ready to attempt nighttime dryness.

How long have you been CDing?

About four months, since my daughter was about 2 weeks old.

How do you like it?

LOVE IT. LOVE IT. LOVE IT. I've told all my friends to try it when they have kids.


Why do you cloth diaper?

1) Cost. Since we're on a serious budget so that I can SAHM, we could never afford disaposables.
2) Baby. Disposables gave her diaper rash, and she hates them. The cloth seems so much more comfy.


What kind of dipes are in your stash?

Indian Bleached Prefolds
Chinese Bleached Prefolds
Thirsties Fleece Fitted
BumGenius Bamboo Fitted

For covers, I have Thirsties (LOVE), a Bummis SuperBrite (like that, too), and a few Bummis Super Whisper Wrap (only times I've had poo leaks, besides disposables).


What's your favorite diaper/diaper combo?

During the day, a PF and a Thirsties cover (easy to tell if she's wet, and I like the PFs for how easy they wash/dry).
At night, a Thirsties Fitted and a Thirsties cover (more absorbent).

What kind of wipes do you use?

Bunch of cut up T-shirts, and one pack of Imse Vimse cotton wipes. I keep a pump thermos of warm water by the changing table, don't use a wipe solution.

What kind of diaper solution do you use?

Just water for the wipes, ALL Free and Clear for detergent.


What is your overnight system?

Fitted diaper and cover. She's only sleeping 5 hours or so at a stretch, and she never poops at night, so it works well for her.


Do you/how do you rinse off your CD before pailing them?

Don't have to, she's EBF and not on solids yet.


What kind of pail system do you have?

I just have a regular diaper pail, with a wetbag liner in it.


What is your wash routine? (how you wash, what detergent/additives, how often, how do you dry?)

I wash daily, warm wash cold rinse, with ALL Free and Clear, dry in the dryer. If there are stains, I lay out in the sun, it takes them right out, then I'll wash them again and dryer dry them (because the sun method makes them crunchy).

And what one CD item would you purchase if money were no object?

One of those diaper sprayers that hook up to the toiler. I don't need it yet because it's just BM poo, but I have a feeling I'll want one later.

Kelly (28), in love with husband Jason (38) and our awesome babies:  Emma 4/09, and Ozzy 8/10

How long have you been CDing?
since ds was 4 days old (he's 6mos now)

How do you like it?
LOVE it

Why do you cloth diaper?
Environment, economy (i'm "thrifty"..) , not having to go out in the middle of the night to buy diapers.. and because i'm "out of my mind" as people like to say when they find out we CD!

What kind of dipes are in your stash?
90% prefolds with wool/fleece (polar babies is my new fave, but i like my homemade longies and shorties too!)
a few bum genius and one fuzzy bunz
a few random wahm contours, fitteds and pockets
gdipe insert folded into prefold for travel/camping

What's your favorite diaper/diaper combo?
pf and wool/fleece

What kind of wipes do you use?
i use some kind with shea butter in it because i like the smell. not too brand particular. i should just make some.. thats going on my to-do list..

What kind of diaper solution do you use?
none

What is your overnight system?
flannel contour with fleece or wool

Do you/how do you rinse off your CD before pailing them?
no just shake off solids

What kind of pail system do you have?
dry- just a hamper in the laundry room

What is your wash routine? (how you wash, what detergent/additives, how often, how do you dry?)
hot pre wash for poo dipes, then hot wash /rinse with all dipes. i use arm and hammer powdered detergent every few days, and line dry when ever possible. you didnt mention this, but for staining I sun bleach. I've got a bunch sun bleaching on the line right now!

And what one CD item would you purchase if money were no object?
a laundry maid! can she clean my house while she's at it?!
actually, probably a high efficiency front loader. i think my older machine probably uses wayyy too much water. but i can't shell out the dough right now.. sigh.

How do you like it? right now I am ambivalent

Why do you cloth diaper? Love getting fluffy mail and love that I am reducing the amount of garbage my large family produces

What kind of dipes are in your stash? Tiny Tush, goodmamas, Bumkins, Growing greens os, bella bottoms, Patooshie pants, Batick bums, Dreameze, muttaguin os, CPF and IPF. I am sure there are others just can't think of them. I'll come back after I hang the load in the washer...

What's your favorite diaper/diaper combo? I love my patosshie pants fitteds even better than goodmamas. Wool shorties to cover or Fuzibunz snap cover

What kind of wipes do you use? cloth form wherever!

What kind of diaper solution do you use? water and a bit of soap if there is a poop

What is your overnight system? same as my day system

Do you/how do you rinse off your CD before pailing them? in the toilet--a sprayer was a pia

What kind of pail system do you have? dry

What is your wash routine? (how you wash, what detergent/additives, how often, how do you dry?) wash full cylce twice final viegar wtih tea tree rinse. I use All unscented concentrate int he seocnd wash cycle. Line dry

And what one CD item would you purchase if money were no object. More shorties. I have enough cloth to go over a week without wahsing but I would love to buy new wool.

How long have you been CDing? I CDed full time for three years, have been doing it only at night for another 10 months, am planning on starting full-time again in another 3 months.

How do you like it? LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE

Why do you cloth diaper? Because cloth is soft and fluffy and wonderful, and disposables disgust me.

What kind of dipes are in your stash? Right now, just Toddle-ease diapers and Dappi nylon pull-on pants.

What's your favorite diaper/diaper combo? Regular 4x6x4 prefolds with Blue Penguin wrap 'n snaps

What kind of wipes do you use? mostly Kissaluvs

What kind of diaper solution do you use? distilled water

What is your overnight system? right now it's ONLY overnight, but back in the day I used to use 2 prefolds under a Mother-ease or Bummis cover.

Do you/how do you rinse off your CD before pailing them? Back when we were dealing with poop, yes, with a minishower.

What kind of pail system do you have? Nowadays I just throw them in with the undies, but I used to have a real diaper pail with a Bummis liner.

What is your wash routine? (how you wash, what detergent/additives, how often, how do you dry?) Again, nowadays I just throw them in with the undies, but back in the day I did a cold short wash followed by a hot wash with detergent to line 1 followed by an extra cold rinse. No particular detergent preference. Every other day was best for minimizing the gross factor, though I sometimes stretched it to every 3 days. I either air fluffed in the dryer and then dried outside on the line, or dried the diapers in the dryer on hot and left the covers on top of the dryer.

And what one CD item would you purchase if money were no object? I would have 3 dozen identical diapers and 6 identical covers AND a great big "sample stash" of other kinds too! (this may be less of a money issue and more of a storage space issue)

How do you like it? It was a wise decision on many levels, and I am pleased that we went this route.

Why do you cloth diaper? In 1989 -- to save some cash and to save the landfills and water. With the second one to save some cash since I gave up a job to stay home. With my last one -- he was acutely allergic and the education really began. With the last child reasons went far beyond, save the earth -- it began, save my child.

What kind of dipes are in your stash? I used mostly pf'd. Fitteds and a few Aio's

What's your favorite diaper/diaper combo? Fitted and cover for ease of use. Pf'd and cover for ease of laundry. AIO's for short day trips.

What kind of wipes do you use? Cloth, anything I felt like making at the time.

What kind of diaper solution do you use? don't

What is your overnight system? Nothing anymore special than what is noted above.

Do you/how do you rinse off your CD before pailing them? Dunk and Swish

What kind of pail system do you have? Dry pail -- diaper pail.

What is your wash routine? (how you wash, what detergent/additives, how often, how do you dry?) every two days, in the dryer or on the line. Detergents with little enzymes and phosphates.

DRY!!! Wet is a drowning hazard.

What is your wash routine? (how you wash, what detergent/additives, how often, how do you dry?)
I wash when the pails are full so every 3-4 days depending.
Cold rinse, hot wash/cold rinse (only option for rinse is cold) with regular detergent(whatever was on sale) and a final cold rinse. Once month I do a strip with blue dawn(they feel sooooo soft after!!)
If the weather permits I line dry.

And what one CD item would you purchase if money were no object?
Hmmmm, a bunch more bella bottoms fitteds and wool.
