You can also use this for clothes it just doesn't smell pretty (it doesn't smell like anything). Which I am totally fine with on the diapers and Rhett's stuff because typically things that smell good irritate sensitive skin. On our clothes, when I use this, I just add some of the Purex crystals or something similar. You only have to use 1 TBSP of the detergent per normal load or 2 TBSP for heavy loads. When I can't get detergents for free or next to free with coupons and sales I use this stuff all the time and it works great.

I invested around $220 for our cloth diapers. I bought a few used, some on ebay new for super cheap, and others brand new. I had four given to me for free. We have 22 diapers so this averages about $10/diaper. This means I made up the cost for our diapers in just 4 months of cloth diapering. I am planning on keeping him in cloth until he is potty trained and using them on whatever future Buettemeyer babies may come. The cost of cloth diapers really deterred me at first from doing them but I was very frugal when buying them and have already seen the cost benefits since starting last July.
Anyways, those are MY cloth diaper thoughts. Everyone does things differently but this is what works for us! I promise it isn't as hard as it looks and they are SO cute!
