Water crisis & washing cloth diapers

Anybody in this situation and wondering what to do? I've heard it's ok to do laundry, but I'm hesitant to use the city water on something that goes right against DD's skin. She's only 3 months old. I always wash them in hot water.

  • I would be really hesitant too. Especially with hot water and she's only 3 months. Could you use disposables if this happens again? I should probably say when since algae season peaks in September. :(

  • Ugh, I so hope it doesn't happen again but know it probably will! :( A lady from church who has a well offered to let us do laundry at her place, so we'll probably do that if the situation comes up again.
