Of Charlies and Such

Ok, so I have switched from Melaleuca laundry soap to Charlie's. Wow. I am SO happy. Not only is that horrible urine smell GONE (it was starting to linger like a stray cat you once fed) but it also is good for the environment (like Melaleuca) and it also has been getting some of the stench smell out of my husband's work out clothes.
Here is how I wash my diapers these days:
1. I was every other day.
2. I use the "large load" setting so that there is lots of water to be washed in.
3. I send them through a rinse cycle with about 1/8 c. of white vinegar.
3. I wash them with 1 tbs of Charlie's
4. I either dry them in the dryer, or if it is nice out I line dry them. Sometimes in the winter when it is dry in the house I will hang them on a drying rack in the boy's room so that they get the benefit of the humidity and I don't waste energy with the dryer!
So as I was perusing blog world I came across these awesome posts about cloth diapering. ENJOY!
They answer GREAT cloth diapering questions about saving money, environmental factors, and why disposables are so bad for your baby's bum!

Cloth Blogs

If you haven't noticed, I've been linking to quite a few cloth blogs lately. This entire blog is about my journey with cloth diapers...which has been inspired by other people's journeys. If you are even reading this blog it is probably because you too cloth diaper or are thinking about it. Well, here is another post you might enjoy by my friend Deb.

Oh, and this blog is also dedicated to cloth diapering. It makes this one look wretched. But that is ok, because as long as you get the information it doesn't matter how....but please come back *sniff*

I just came across a website that takes cloth diaper/nautral mothering donations, as well as will take applicants who want to cloth diaper. Here is their link:

Ok, today I read the BEST blog post on cloth diapers EVER. It was similar to the one I did here, but of course way better. To discover it for yourself, click here! YOU WANT TO! Trust me!
I am so glad to be back to using cloth diapers after Baby J's hospital stay. You may think I am crazy...but that is why this blog is called "cloth crazy". I just love those cloth diapers.
