How often do you wash?

I don't know that much about CDing, so I'm no help...sorry.

What made you decide to switch? What kind of diapers did you get?

I use Rockin Green to wash with. I used to use Charlies Soap. You can get both on amazon. Definitely use cloth diaper soap or your cloth diapers will have build up issues. I wash every three days. I put them in the washer and then do a cold rinse, a hot wash, and then an extra rinse. Once a month I put a splash of bleach in there and do some extra rinses. HTH! Let me know if you have any questions.

After a poopy diaper, do I just clean it off in the toilet? Should I buy a spayer that hooks to the toilet?

What do you hold the soiled diapers in?

I was told to use Tide Free and Clear for the diapers. Will that work? Or should I try a wash strictly for cloth diapers?

I need a manual. Like one from you Kristen. Step by step.

I have an unused sprayer... its yours for 20$ (including shipping), if you want it.

Stick to a cloth safe detergent. Rockin Green and Crunchy Clean are good. Laundry Tarts smell really nice too

As for wash routine, it's cold pre-rinse, hot wash, and double rinse on cold. I do a load every 2days, no longer than every 3rd, or stains and smell get horrible.

For poopies, you use a sprayer, or get an old spatula and scrape off the poo into the toilet.

Not weird! I have purchased many used for my other kids. Belita sold me two of Sean's diapers a few months ago. Check out diaperswappers.com. They have a for sale or trade section with tons of diapers.
