Day 5 – How to Wash
Flats Challenge 2021
May 17 – 23, 2021
Day 5 Topic: How do you wash
Everyone’s wash routine story is valid and deserves to be shared. I love learning what works and doesn’t work for people.
As a cloth diaper educator and consultant for years past, wash routines continue to be one of the biggest asked questions because they can be finnicky for some families.
As you share about your wash routine – avoid words like should, must, have-to. Focus on sharing about “this works for me” and sharing your experience as one possible solution.
Share a link in the comments to your content – blog, Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, or other.

Professional Cloth Diaper Educator
Bailey brings 5+ years of cloth diapering experience and conversation to the cloth diaper space. She's not just your every day mom blogger sharing her experience - Bailey is immersed in the cloth diaper community learning from other parents and growing as an individual. She wants to find the cloth diaper solution that truly works for you.
Bailey believes we need to stop and listen to cloth diapering parents. We need to recognize our own bias and preferences and focus on solutions that work for you, not us. The Cloth Diaper community needs to recognize the privilege of being able to cloth diaper, and provide spaces for more conversations and stories.
Cloth diapering is not about rules but about our own strength as parents to do the best we can for our children with the resources available.
