treat me as if i'm a newb.... prep question.

Okay - stupid prep question, but my friend and I are on opposite sides of this, and I want to make sure I don't screw up my brandy new glistening Twinkie Tush, that i just de-nipped.

I was going to wait to wash it until I do my diaper laundry tomorrow night. (I do an ovenight soak.). ALL of my diapers are natural fiber. She only wears bamboo and the very rare organic cotton. 

Can i wash the Twinkie with my existing already in rotation diapers, or does it need to be washed by itself so the oils don't crud up the already prepped?

Thanks ladies!

  • I prep all my natural fibers completely on their own when they're brand new. The ones already in rotation are oil-free, I personally wouldn't chance mixing them.

    Hold your horses. I gave you a quote earlier and she gave another method, I just didnt include that part.

    No!  Boiling might damage the snaps and shorten the life of the elastic.  Don't hurt your pretty TT that way! lol

  • You can wash that diaper with your clothes and just use CD safe detergent. It is ok if those oils get on your clothes. Thats what I do when I get a couple new CDs.
