Flats - Day Five...

It's been raining...

Raining a lot.

No break long enough for me to dry diapers.

So tonight, I washed and hung them in my laundry room with the hope they will dry by morning. The temperature is still cold enough to be running the heater unit. This will hopefully assist in the drying process. We'll see come morning.

These flats are big. Really big. I could use a couple of them as a table cloth for my 6 seat table. As you can see from the photos, I used up most of my laundry room real estate. There is still the counter top space but I did not think they would dry well laying flat.

I am NOT enjoying the handwashing component of this challenge but I really like the flats. After this week, I am planning to switch all my microfiber inserts in my pocket diapers to flats. My hands are really starting to dry and crack from all the moisture and the washing. I have one more wash before this is complete.

It's late. I'm tired. But the diapers are clean. Now pardon be me while I go use my favorite hand cream to soothe my aching cracking hands.

What are your remedies for cracking hands?

I never thought about this aspect of handwashing. My hands would be a mess. As it is, I already apply handlotion several times a day! It's raining here too. Since Deaglan was signed up for soccer they've cancelled every single game. Last week the coach had it in her backyard - no room to sit, no shade. Again today it was cancelled and the coach is holding it in her tiny backyard. Deaglan doesn't want to go but I'm insisting we go.

Hope you have a great day!

oh wow rain = no good!
I am impressed by all your hampers! Look at them all lined up in a row! And such a nice laundry room. We have a basement - and everything just starts to look messy! :)

I commend you fo keeping on despite the obstacles. I am not having the cracking issues - I get tight skin for a while after washing but it goes away. I hope your hands are healing up!

I've been using a pad folded flat plus a Baby Kicks or is it Hemp Babies insert in my 3 y.o.'s overnight diaper. It works great!

Regarding the weather, I'm hoping there is a nice dose of spring before the hot summer comes barreling in. =)

I am not brave enough for flats, that and I have a full stash having 3 kids.
