What to do with the poop?
A lot of mamas use diaper sprayers to clean off diapers before tossing them in the diaper pail or wet bag. I've also read a lot of bad reviews about diaper sprayers... I have a giant bathroom/laundry room on my first floor where I keep my diaper pail. Luckily, the shower is right next to the toilet, so I can use the hand held shower head to spray off stubborn diapers.
But, that poses quite difficult on one leg with crutches. So, since I became less mobile, I resorted to the "dunking" or "sloshing" method... which is basically to splash the diaper around in the toilet and flush until it comes clean. It's a longer process, but it works.
A very nice lady named Heather Lucas in the Flats & Handwashing Challenge Facebook group offered me a ScrubADoozy to try out during the challenge. I had never heard of a ScrubADoozy, but I was looking for something new! A ScrubADoozy is basically an in-toilet washboard to assist in the dunking/sloshing process.
One of my biggest challenges with both spraying and dunking was getting the leg elastic clean on the covers. No matter how much I dunked or what angle I sprayed, the elastics just never came perfectly clean. With the ScrubADoozy I rub each side of the diaper on the washboard and everything comes off! The washboard comes clean very easily with a single flush. So easy!
