Question Beach questions!

We are going to the shore soon and I'm wondering about the water there. Usually the water by the ocean is a bit saltier, does that change the wash routine at all? And I'm assuming I should be super careful about not getting sand in the dipes, will it get all stuck in them like I'm thinking?

Wish me luck, we're going a week and bringing only cloth *biting nails*

Re: Beach questions!

I'm at the beach right now. We use our pockets sans insert as swim dipes so our diapers got full of sand. I just finished washing our first load of dipes while we're here. They came out just fine. No need to worry about getting sand in your diapers. I will preface this with I only use snaps so I don't know how the sand would be with aplix.

Yay for the beach, I hope you are having a good time! Glad to hear the sand was okay. I'm all paranoid about the diapers being ruined, typical addict.

Re: Beach questions!

We go to the beach often and we usually just use a cover without an insert. Almost all of our dipes are aplix and it has not been a problem. I usually do use an older diaper just to be on the safe side but have never had a problem. HTH

Re: Beach questions!

We went a few months ago, and we just took her to the beach in a swim dipe. If I needed a little absorbancy I just tossed a doubler into the swim diaper and then took it out before she got in the water. I just rinsed them off with a hose once we got back to the house and then just washed them with the rest of my dipes (or clothes...I can't remember).
