Then, my older daughter spilled her juice. No towels were handy, so I grabbed a prefold that was in a pile of too-small diapers. It cleaned up the spill quicky and effectively. I really shouldn't have been surprised-they are diapers after all-but I was. I quickly moved the prefolds from my "sell" pile to my cleaning cabinet.
After that, I thought about other products I'll likely keep when our diapering days are over. Here are 4 more items to round out the top five:
2. wet bag- I've always known that wetbags are wonderful for many uses. For the gym, beach or pool, they are great to keep wet clothing away from dry items.
3. doorknob diaper pail- This handy bag from Knickernappies makes a great laundry bag in tight spaces and small bathrooms. It's also great for storing small laundry articles, like socks!
4. dryer balls-I don't think I'll ever go back to dryer sheets. Dryer balls help our laundry stay soft, and they never "run out."
5. rash sticks-In addition to keeping our daughters' bottoms rash free, diaper sticks are great for chapped skin and rough skin patches.
Take a look at the diapering products around your home. Chances are, you'll realize that cloth diapering has opened your eyes to some great items you can no longer live without!
