Flats Day 2 - My Stash & On-The-Go
I am taking part in the Second Annual Flats and Handwashing Challenge hosted by Dirty Diaper Laundry. For 7 days I will be using only flat cloth diapers and handwashing them in an effort to prove that cloth diapering can be affordable and accessible to all. You can learn more about the rules and why this challenge was started by visiting the announcement post. This year there are over 450 participants from all over the world!
Today was a big day for us. My 4 year old "graduated" from preschool & Weston had his 2 month well baby check. I was not nervous about going out in flats, just curious how they would do. The answer is, fine. I noticed absolutely no difference from the prefolds we usually use while running errands.
So here's what my Flats stash consists of,
10 Gerber birdseye flats
5 Walmart Mainstays flour sack kitchen towels (purchased today, not yet used.)
1 wash cloth doubler
1 tshirt rag doubler
2 Thirsties covers size 1
1 Econobum cover
10ish Circo brand baby wash cloths as wipes
1 small homemade wet bag
1 medium homemade wet bag
Washing in Planet Ultra liquid.
