The problem with velcro diapers: First, the handy laundry tabs go bad, then the velcro tabs get loose in the wash and collect all kinds of lint and hair. Then they go in the dryer and the tabs start curling, like this: Which is only half because of the dryer, really, and half because of […]

How I Wash My Diapers – New and Improved

My old washing routine was giving me some stink issues and rash issues, so I had to search for a new one.  And, by gum, I think I’ve got it. My old routine involved 1/4 cup free-and-clear detergent.  (My bumGenius tags told me to.)  Then I found a site that told me NEVER USE FREE […]
