Re: Am I the only crazy mama that washes EVERYDAY

I usually wash everyday or every other, just because I like to do smaller loads and don't like letting the nighttime diapers sit too long. I really enjoy doing the diaper laundry, so it doesn't seem like a chore, especially with a smallish load.

I don't have a washer/dryer, so I do laundry weekly.

I wash about twice a week. Unless there's a REALLY bad poopy diaper and it stinks up the whole pail... then I'll likely wash sooner.

Re: Am I the only crazy mama that washes EVERYDAY

I do diaper wash daily, but it's because I do Abby's one day and then Emmett's the next.

Re: Am I the only crazy mama that washes EVERYDAY

I try to wash every 3 days because our water level down here is pretty bad right now due to a horrible drought. We're not on water restriction, yet, but I'm doing all I can to help out.

And Emma's poops are pretty solid most days, so it's dump and spray with Bac-Out -- no stinkies.

I don't let them sit as long as I probably could (if we went through the whole stash), but I don't wash daily. We generally wash every 2-3 days.

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.
...What she said.

It defeats the purpose environmentally to use that much water, electricity, and detergent. Plus, I live in GA where we are having a major water crisis. 2 minute showers for us!

I just rinse the poopy dipes in the toilet before putting in the dirty bag.

I wash every 4 days or so, even 5 days. It's very dry here too in general, and I like to think that I'm not using a ton of water/electricity.
