Flats and Handwashing Challenge Day 5

Day 5- What Have We Learned So Far?

Day 5 of the Flats and Handwashing Challenge Hosted by DirtyDiaperLaundry. Its been 5 days of using only flats and handwashing them. Its getting old. Using the flats isn't so bad, washing them by hand is.

 I have learned that I like just strictly padfolding. I love trifolding my prefolds, so why would it be any different with flats?! When its in a fancy fold, and #3 poops, there is so much more poop to get off the diaper, from every corner of the diaper, than just in 1 strip in the middle.
I have learned that using a plunger gets your diapers cleaner, but using the grapestomp method is easier.
I have learned that wringing out diapers is a big pain in the butt.
I have learned that I really REALLY appreciate my washer and dryer.
I have learned I am stronger than I think.
But most importantly, I have learned that as long as my child is in cloth, I am a happy mommy :)

About to grapestomp it with my feet :)
