Ohhh boy! This weekend was fun and tiring! As you may have noticed with the lack of updates for the #FlatsChallenge! But I did upload a video about my handwashing routine!
And that brings me to the topic.... “How I’m Doing- My Thoughts on Handwashing”
GREAT! To sum it up, just check out my YouTube video on how I washed this week (just once)!
Then, I'm going to squeeze in Day 5 into this post! “What Tips I have Learned So Far”
- Use a PUL Cover
- Learn a new fold
- Tuck everything in!
Using a PUL cover is much easier than using a pocket because the pocket will usually get wet. The PUL cover you can just wipe down and can reuse if it wasn't too wet (or you can just switch out every other cover).
I learned like 5 new folds and they all came in hand in different situations.... that way you can see which fold you like best. I used the pad fold and the diaper bag fold most often. Both the diaper bag & pad fold is great for on the go, because you can pre-fold and won't get too unraveled when you are ready to put it on the baby.
And yes.... TUCK & TUCK! I had one t-shirt leak because the top flap of the diaper fold was sticking out. This can easily happen with the leg gussets!
Pre-rinse just helps with the smell before you start washing, haha. As you see in the video, I had one very good pee'd flat that was a good one and that was one reason why I rinsed two times and the smell went down drastically!
So, stay tuned for days 6 & 7!
