Question Laundering Questions

First, what is a wet pail?

and also, when do you suggest investing in a diaper sprayer? My son is still EBF, and I use a diaper pail and do laundry every day or every other day, so I don't do anything but toss em in the pail and once in a while have mild staining problems (got my lemon juice for that) lol So just curious, when is a good time to start using it, or could it even help a lot now?

Re: Laundering Questions

a wet pail is like a trash can with some water/baking soda or what ever you want to add at the bottom for stinkes. i think what makes it a wet is rinsing off diapers and then letting them sit till wash day.

someone else can prob better answer that

diaper sprayer~~hmmm joe is 8months and STILL EBF (no food for him) i guess you could wait till hes eating more soilds and you have things to rinse off, KWIM LOL

we have a hanging dry pail that all diapers go into. i dont do any prerinsing and if we have stains i sun them out.

yeah that's basically what I do hehe, we are trying him on solids cause he "wants to" LOL but then when we offer them he doesn't always want em so we try, if he refuses wait a few weeks, sometimes he'll have a bit of cereal for a few days then decide he doesn't want anymore lol

Re: Laundering Questions

A wet pail is what my mother used back in the day...she would fill the pail halfway up with water and a little bleach, then throw the wet dipes and swished/flushed poopies in until wash day. On wash days she would dump the whole thing in the washer, spin it out, then run one hot wash cycle.

A dry pail is when you throw the wet or rinsed out poopies in a pail with no water in it. I think most people are dry pailing it these days. I do keep a little 3 gallon bucket next to my toilet to soak a sprayed off poopy with a little Charlies soap for an hour or two then spray it out and drop it in the "dry" pail until wash day. It keeps staining down on my dipes.

Re: Laundering Questions

Oh yeah, I wish I'd invested in my sprayer sooner...I EBF'd until 7 months and have only had my Potty Pail/sprayer for a couple months. I love the sprayer!

thanks ladies

poor babe Rachael


so where can I get a good sprayer at a decent price? so far I've seen some for 40 (I had made a thread while back) so is that about average for one?

Re: Laundering Questions

I got mine here: http://www.pottypail.com/ I couldn't live without the pottypail too, it keeps the poopy water from splashing all over the bathroom. I use a small pail that fits inside it to soak, the rubber stopper isn't reliable to take off the toilet while soaking for a couple hours.
