family cloths update

curious about how we're doing with our pee cloths? or maybe it's really the last thing you'd like to hear about? *grin*
well, we're doing great. they were perfect. should i make more, i would maybe make them just a teeny bit larger. we keep ours in a plastic container just next to the toilet, and put the used ones in a small metal trash can - the pedal/lid kind. i sprinkle a little bit of baking soda in the bottom of the can, to prevent odour.
oh, and the trick to get your hubby on board? don't. make it a girl thing. that's what we do, as we only use it for pee (and my daughter is dead proud of it!). i'm not sure that washing poo-cloths on high temperatures is more enviro friendly than using paper. plus, i'm a chicken.

i've been sewing up a handkerchief for my swap-choo partner, and enjoying the sudden rushes of warmth that has come this way lately.

Good for you for trying and suceeding in this venture....we really should try it. I have to get started on my swap choo hankie too, so much to do, so little time. ;)

you are so brave doing the pee cloth thing. i do want to give it a go, but wonder about he mayhem the boys could create throwing them all over the place...hmmm?

love the photos. very pretty.

That's a great idea. My daughter is 9 1/2 and I have to start getting serious about menstrual products. I would like to set the example of using cloth.
