Re: Want to use cloth pads but need help. Anyone?
Well I can't answer all your questions since I just started stashing myself and I'm still pregnant BUT...I have found GEM Cloth and The Silver Liner (both have threads in the WAHM goods section on FSOT) to be super reasonably prices and easy to work with. They both make great products. There are different absorbency options and sizing options out there to fit your needs/preferences. If you're not sure, just ask the person making them, chances are they will be happy to help! The ones I have so far are all natural products and have only required one regular wash to "prep." I am currently using liners and I put them in the wet bag with the diapers and wash with diapers as well. I use Tide. I plan on getting a mini wet/dry bag (Planetwise makes them) to use when out and about so I can store extras and the used ones discretely. I hope that helps!!!!
