Easiest flats to hand wash?

Normally I use bamboo flats because they are a little bigger than our cotton ones and I think they hold more. We are going to a week cottage rental with no laundry and as far as I know, no place to get rid of dirty spouses either. The idea of 8 days of stinky toddler poopy/ammonia diapers disgusts me!

I am bringing some hybrid diapers (Grovia and Flips) with disposable inserts, but think a dozen flats might be good to bring along as well. So...wondering if the cotton ones would wash easier by hand?

Re: Easiest flats to hand wash?

Dirty spouses?!?!?! That's hysterical, I hate autocorrect

I have GMD and FST, I took my fst's camping and they were the easiest. In fact getting ready to do it again, but with two this time. They came clean well, but I did do some extra washes when we got home just in case.

I just feel the fst's, while thinner are preferable for that same reason. Easier to clean. Good luck, let us know how that goes, 8 days is way longer than I've ever gone!!

Hahaha, oops! I'm sure it will be just as tricky to get rid of dirty spouses though I only have 6 FST I think....or maybe 3! But you're right, I bet those would be easiest. Do you need to prep them much? The ones we have are mainly used for kitchen cloth so I can't remember.

Also, just had toddler ds remove his own cover less flat by taking the boings off!!! Just had to try pinning which I suck at, but it seems to be staying on better now!

Re: Easiest flats to hand wash?

Since they're so cheap I'd buy 20 for $20. They prep super easily, you could even do it with your regular kitchen towels/bath towels. Since they're so think I only prepped once or twice I think. Do you normally go coverless? I don't like pinning, can't get it tight enough, but the toddler removing boingo's is a problem. Try pining in the center with only one pin, the origami fold works for that b/c of the extra wing length. BUt I also have a tiny kid so who knows!

Good luck with the dipes and the spouse

Just got 6 more FST. They are about $2 each for the ones I get though they are 27x27 after washing, which is why I like them so much. Do you think 9 is enough if I wash every night? We'll be swimming at least half of most days and probably using sposies at night. So I was thinking 4-5 changes a day....maybe I should get 3 more.
