Am I the only crazy mama that washes EVERYDAY

...even though I could go many, many, many days with out running out of dipes, I wash EVERYDAY. The thought of pee pee and poo poo'ed dipes sitting in a pail, makes me

Me too---well, that's kindof a lie because I don't wash on the days I work, but dd is at the babysitter and she uses sposies there. But every day I'm here and we are using cloth, yes, I wash

Re: Am I the only crazy mama that washes EVERYDAY

I wash daily, for one it does gross me out too, but for two, I have 3 in diapers and one day of diapers is an entire load. I couldn't imaging having to do many loads at one time!

I wash once or 2 times a week. Usually weds and sundays. Trying to cut out the weds wash.
I started cloth diapering for the environment, so using water every day of the week, kind of defeats the purpose for me. I KNOW that some mamas only have enough diapers for one day etc. These are just my reasons. Plus the electricity is not good for the enviro either.

I have an HE front loader.

I wash everyday, mostly becuase I dont have very many dipes. Hopefully soon I will be able to cut down to every couple of days. I already do about a million loads of laundry a week

Re: Am I the only crazy mama that washes EVERYDAY

I don't let them sit as long as we could (if we went through the whole stash), but I don't wash daily. Our soak/rinse/wash/rinse rountine requires too much manual adjustment of the washer to do it daily. We generally wash every 2nd or 3rd day.

Re: Am I the only crazy mama that washes EVERYDAY

I don't wash until I have a full load which is usually 2-3 days. I use cloth to save natural resources and if I washed everyday without a full load that would be a waste of water and electricity. Especially here in GA we are having a horrible drought so I need to do what I can to conserve water .

ITA- I rarely have pail stink issues even after 2 days. I'm a stink freak and that would me out!
