Me too :P



I agree with the line drying thing on the RaRz blog. I used to hang dry diapers in the sun in the summer and had lots of stretched out elastic.

I was always told it was best to line dry them as much as possible. I have an HE machine, so they're not heavy when they come out of the washer.

Honestly I always wondered if I was doing good or bad by this. I
We have a wood stove (no I don't dry them on it haha), and I usually dry the inserts by hanging them on a rack (okay a baby gate lol) right behind it (it's about two feet away from the wall), and then I lay my pockets on the back of the couch for the night and everything is perfectly dry in the morning. I'm not sure what I'll do in the summer now. I guess I could hang them on the actual cloths rack and hope they dry over night.

I have on where to lay mine flat to dry. My mother would have a f**king cow if I left them in her house to dry and if I brought them home, the dogs would eat them.

Oh and I've never dried my diapers in the dryer, my pediatrician says I need to because of bacteria.. Huh? What about before they had disposables and dryers?!

I know! So far what I do works pretty well for us, she rarely has rashes and I've only felt the need to strip once since we first started about six months ago and it was for stinkies, not repelling. And I think they only smell because I strap them on my four year old instead of pullups at night now.



I do hot wash/rinse a lot though because for some reason, my washer takes forever to fill cold water. It like hardly trickles out. Our hit water heater is only at like 115 though.

I usually line dry but lately it's been raining a lot, and when it isn't raining it's like 8 at night. So, I've been drying a lot lately.

We had a dog we were trying to find a home for that I adored, I wish we could have kept him, but he did chew up a couple of disposable dipes... On my bed. And down comforter. He hated being left alone. Even if we were just outside. But my God did he love our baby. So protective of her and let her crawl all over him and poke and pull him. I loved him just for that reason alone. But he was too protective of ourfamily. He bit our neighbor on the ass when she walked in the door unannounced.



And that reminds me I need to buy new parts for my breast pump at the hospital, he chewed the yellow part where the valve attaches.
