Adventures in Cloth Diapering, part 4...wet bag review/giveaway


So, I've mentioned the poopy diaper that was kind of gross but not too bad yet.
What do you do with a diaper once it is dirty? You are supposed to wash the cloth diapers separate from your other laundry, so you can't just throw it in the laundry basket.
You don't want it just hanging out in the baby's room (I tried...it starts to reek.)
So, what to do?
You get a wet bag and toss the dirty diaper in, where it can live until it is time to wash all those cloth beauties.
weeonesbyjajoc
let me review one of her medium wet bags. She's got an etsy shop full of cloth diapers, liners, nursing pads, diaper covers, etc, etc. She is a mom's best friend.
I reviewed a medium one and she gave me a small purple one to give away (more on tha tin a minute)

Bart is the one who got to open the wet bag package...I like to open the packages, because it is like Christmas, but alas, I was in Louisiana and not able to. He tells me, "It's some sort of purple bag thingie." I told him to bring it to LA with him so we could use it on our trip. He told me I had brought enough bags but after some convincing about how we could throw our swim suits in it, he threw it in his suitcase.
We went to Florida as soon as Bart got to LA. While there, Brennan got sick with what the pharmacist at WalGreen's called "Travelers Diarhea" Without going into details (b/c the name says enough), he created some dirty undies before we decided to just get the poor boy a pack of pull ups until he felt better. What to do with the dirty undies?
When on vacation you can't just throw them away...you will run out unless you packed way too many (which for once, i did not). So...I pulled out the wet bag and threw them in, zipped it up and put it away. Once we returned to my sister's house, I just threw the bag, unzipped, into the washer and gave them a hot wash. They were good to go and I didn't have to tear open a stinky grocery sack, spend a lot of money on new undies, or embarrass Brennan even more.

Now that we are back home, I have used it for my cloth diapers and it has worked great. I fit about six in and when it is full, I just shake the bag into the wash and they all come out. No touching of dirty diapers required.

So, I have a small wet bag waiting for one lucky reader to win.

I could use a wet bag in our diaper bag for clothes- Leo has started spitting up on everthing again. It would be nice to have something besides a grocery sack for gross clothes.

I love the Hydro Hybrid Cloth AIO Diaper and I'd love it in that cute monkey print. AIO's are starting to grow on me..although I do love a good pocket diaper too!

Put K's clothes in it when she decides to spit up at the most inappropriate times (especially on people's cute carpets...)

Swimsuits would go nicely in there too!
