When it comes to my cloth diaper organization, I want my system to be as easy to maintain as possible. I also want a system that makes my laundry easier, meaning I don't spend time stuffing all of my diapers or pre-folding flats or anything ahead of time. I find with a family of 5, I just don't have time for that. And, well...folding laundry is one of my least favorite chores. But just because we are a family of 5 doesn't mean we have succumbed to disorganization. I have an organized storage system that is: Easy to maintain [...]

The GE Top Load Washer Review contains affiliate links which means I may receive a commission at no extra cost to you if you purchase from my links. All opinions are my own.

But then in June 2019, we moved to a new home. This house had a 19-year-old Kenmore front loader. I hated this machine. It reeked of mildew. It sounded like it was going to blast off into space when it [...]

We recently bought a new cloth diaper sprayer- the Aquaus Cloth Diaper Sprayer. We bought the full kit that came with the sprayer itself, the Spray Mate, the clips, and the reaching tool.

This post on wool diaper covers contains affiliate links which means I may receive a commission at no extra cost to you if you make a purchase after clicking a link. I have to admit: I have a new obsession with wool covers. I am so mad at myself that it took me so long to try them! Wool diaper covers are not as common as covers made from PUL or TPU, and they have a considerably higher price tag per cover, which is why I haven't used them until recently. However, the cost is not tit for tat, [...]

It's hard to talk about potty training without any sort of [...]

By |2020-01-19T17:02:02+00:00February 21, 2019|Diaper Accessories, Green Cleaning, Washing Issues|

Tide Original Powder is probably one of the most often recommended detergents for cloth diapers, and for good reason! Point blank, Tide is effective. It's ideal for hard water (which 85{9994046f29331ee04cc0b5e07eb28364315ea03ccc2f01b5a43e8b85b372d1e9} of the US has), it's powerful, and it has a great reputation. However, many people don't like using Tide or other non-plant based detergents. They worry about the chemicals in the detergents and how they might affect their family's health or the environment. Most of the time, plant-based detergents are too weak to clean human waste effectively. However, there are some commonly recommended eco-friendly detergents that seem to [...]

Minimalist Cloth Diapering – Sticking To The Essentials

There are many motivations for cloth diapering, and none of them are better or worse than any other motivation. One reason some of us choose to cloth diaper (including myself) is that we generally try to live in a way that is less wasteful. It doesn't mean we are perfect or zero waste; it just means we are doing what we feel capable of at that moment. Cloth diapering felt like a doable thing for our family, so I was willing to give it a try to make a difference in this area. When I say that being less [...]
