Re: Elastic Repair Worth the $$?

I just don't see how it would be worth it in the end.
How much time do you think it would take her to replace elastic? About 20-30 min right? So she is charging $8-10/hour
Do you think it is a fair wage?

To the OP: as pp said, if diapers are in a good condition $5 for a diaper would be totally fine for me.
That said, organic cotton doesn't seem to be very durable and tend to wear off and develop holes quite quick. Example: organic BGE.
So as pp said, see how the diapers look.
