30 Day Cloth Diapering Challenge *Day 6*

It's almost a week since Natali has started her cloth diapering journey. I had been wondering if there are any other mama's that are also been thinking or started using cloth diapers?! Give me a shot-out if you are or know of one.

And for the tip for this week.... Bleach!

From Wikipedia: A bleach is a chemical that removes colors or whitens, often via oxidation. Common chemical bleaches include household chlorine bleach, a solution of approximately 3–6% sodium hypochlorite (NaClO), and oxygen bleach..... Read more HERE.
It seems harmless. It's just something that whitens. It's also great for killing germs but it's bad for cloth diapers. Why is it bad? Well, it will eat away at your diapers. It will leave holes and frayed edges as well. So what does less diaper mean? Less absorbency! It's also bad for the covers, it may affect the waterproofing in certain cloth diapers.

So how are you suppose to get those diapers white and clean? Well... baking soda is a great substitute as is oxygen bleach. You can get baking soda for a few dollars at your local grocery store. Just add some to the washing cycle (or pre-rinse) as you wash your diapers. I add it about once a week to my diapers. It will save on money and save from having all those chemicals on your baby's bum and will make your diapers last sooo much longer!

Thanks for stopping by for my cloth diapering challenge tips for CBS's Natali Del Conte... stay tuned for more! Also visit Calley over at The Eco Chic as she also has some great advice for Natali as well.

  1. The sun is an awesome, all natural, whitener & bacteria killer! It's as organic as you can get! Thanks for this post about bleach, I just cringe when I hear people suggest it to get the stains out of CDs. www.ohsosavvymom.com

Ungrateful during Thanksgiving?

Hubby made me cry on Thanksgiving.... The usual share what you're thankful for, he just went all out talking about how we had one of the toughest years and we were apart from each other for six months and how much he missed us and it just sucked. Ohhhh, the waterfalls!! But yeah, it was the longest year ever. Speaking of Thanksgiving.... HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Reminds me of something that's been on my mind....

We just moved out of the valley and guess what?! The worst part moving to a new place was not the moving. Before we moved I scoped out our neighborhood, grocery stores, parks and I joined several mom groups. I knew negative Nancy’s were bound to share their troubles in Facebook groups but I’ve never heard so many complaints in one day.

I don’t know what it is but I don’t like when people complain. I just think to myself, “Did you really have to share that?” or about an easy solution to that complaint. There would have been a better way to spend your time than writing a n…
