Re: DH is losing it over the water bill HELP!

I pre-rinse my dipes like PP before they go in the pail. i find it much easier and it allows me to skip pre-rinse.. but, with that being said i mainly use natural fiber diapers

Re: DH is losing it over the water bill HELP!

IMO, I would try a couple of things. First, you mentioned your nanny is guilty of doing too much laundry. Could you consolidate to a laundry "schedule" or certain days she should do laundry? Also, if your washer allows it, and you don't have SUPER stinky clothes, wash them on the short cycle. We have one that runs in just 28 minutes, and does a fine job.
Second, if you're not filling up the washer with your diaper load, throw some clothes in with it. Not jeans or anything, but maybe tshirts/socks/underwear that sort of thing. Wash them on your diaper cycle. But that way it's cutting down on an extra load that way.

They compare washing each diaper with flushing the toilet. To put that in perspective your baby will use the toilet eventually..

WHOA! Our water bill runs about $12 a month. Of course I wash diapers once a week(haven't washed any in 2 months), but I do about 2 loads of laundry a day.
