Flats challenge 2013

Why did I decide to take the Flats and Handwashing Challenge? #FlatsChallenge


I’m participating in the Flats and Handwashing Challenge hosted by Dirty Diaper Laundry. This event is going to be an interesting learning experience.

There are a few reasons I decided to do this challenge.

First and foremost, living in Florida means one thing… hurricane season. This brings the challenge of power outages and evacuations. Having flats is so much easier than using all in ones and any of the thicker diapers. Also, when you pack to evacuate, flats take up much less space than others. I remember going months without power and living off of a generator. Washing all my regular pockets, aios and hybrid fitteds would be such a pain in the butt.

Another reason is outdoor activities. We like camping and going out to the woods. I cannot imagine handwashing my regular diapers. At least flats are thin and dry quickly. Covers can be used multiple times, so that helps as well.

I have been practicing several of the folds, but I have my favorite for now. I plan to try a new one each day but may just go back to my favorite.

I cannot wait to tell y’all about my experience.

Are you going to be participating? Why or why not?
