Last night before bed, I rinsed off all of the diapers that needed rinsed and I put them in to soak for about 30 minutes. I'm washing in the morning today but I might switch that and wash at night instead. I have plenty of diapers and covers, so I could probably go every other day washing but I worry about them not getting dry since I can't use my clothesline while my leg is broken.
Here is my stash!
2 Omni Shells (Ocean and Snowcone) $34
1 Peace-a-phants Omni Shell $22
3 Echo Shells (2 Ocean and 1 Snowcone) $55
1 Pink Echo Shell $18 (pictured ON THE BUM below)
1 Nebula Omni Shell (just arrived on Monday morning!!) $25
I'm using 12 flour sack towels as my flats. My husband picked these up at Sam's Club for me for around $13 with tax. I washed them twice to prep them, because I read they shrink in the dryer and it really helps to tighten the weave of the fabric. We tested them out the last few week in the "pad fold" and they are working great. They are supposedly really easy to handwash as well.
If I end up getting behind on the laundry (I plan to wash daily), I will use my pockets as covers and I will use tshirts as flats. I have an old flannel sheet set that I can also cut up into flats to use as doublers or just extra flats.
So my official stash cost us $167. Maybe after the challenge I will post an update of my entire diaper stash!!
Stay tuned for other posts about the challenge:
