Welcome to Day 12 of the Cloth Diapering Challenge. The previous posts can be found HERE. This Diaper Challenge came about when Natalie Del Conte did a segment on Eye on Parenting on CBS. She got bombarded with comments and accepted the challenge to try cloth diapers for 30 days. You can view her blog HERE as she has a few posts about how she's doing. I will be posting, trips, stories, pictures and more about cloth diapers as she goes through the challenge. I also hope to help, influence and bust some myths about cloth diapers for other families out there.
To continue with the wool, like I said I was going give you some information on how to wash wool I'd like you to first watch this video.... It stars DADDY! Not my daddy, but someones daddy. I found it on YouTube a while back and absolutely love it. It features Mamadweeb's hubby and Northern Essence. Northern Essence is a family owned company owned by Traci Hoffman, a WAHM of 5 kids. She specializes in quality soaps with all natural ingredients. Check out the video!
Now there are lots of different ways that families wash their wool. The usual way is to rinse, wash, soak, rinse and then dry.
What you'll need:
- Sink or bucket
- Hot water
- Wool wash/bar
- 2-3 towels
Now you wait and let the wool item dry......
Here is another of my favorite videos from Potter's Diapers:
I wanted to do my own video but I have no lanolin... boohoo. And I was going to go buy some, but I don't like going to the city without having other errands to run. So I'll probably go tomorrow. That's usually when I go to my local Sun Harvest Farms grocery store because they have double ad day on Wednesday. I also have some coupons!
