Supplies I'm Using #Flatschallenge
Day - 2

I am taking part in the Second Annual Flats and Handwashing Challenge hosted by Dirty Diaper Laundry.  For 7 days I will be using only flat cloth diapers and handwashing them in an effort to prove that cloth diapering can be affordable and accessible to all.  You can learn more about the rules and why this challenge was started by visiting the announcement post.  This year there are over 450 participants from all over the world!  

 I didn't have much money to spend on new flats, so I figured I could trade some diapers for some flats which I did on Diaperswapper.com . That being said I did go to Walmart and bought a set of 2 flour sack towels for $1.98 which was great.

So here are my fluffy details:

Flats : 
I will be using a variety of Osocozy, Walmart flour sack towels, WAHM flats.

2 Fleece Liners for night time (Stay Dry)

Flips, Thirsties, Blueberry, Oeko Popo, fleece soaker want to try a few to see how each and everyone works with flats.

Snappi size 1

Diaper Rash:
(that's) THE BALM

Wipes: 12 Swaddlebee, 12 Thirsties

Rinsing: Water hose

Washing Board that was given to me by my mom because she loves me so much :) She mailed it out to me before the challenge. She's a great supporter!!
Gloves, trash can bought at the dollar tree, Eco- Sprout detergent, Water.
I will be using my Clothes Line outside that hubby made for me.

Be sure to check out and follow other blogs participating in the #Flatschallenge!!!


  1. A washing board...wow..impressive! I wish I had one of those:-)Instead I stood outside in the pooring rain with my bucket:-(

    1. aww julie.. why don't you put the bucket inside the bath tub??? i think Kim had it in her bath tub. I can't wait to read your post.

  2. You go girl! I am looking forward to participating next year when I only have 1 in diapers and trip planned in the midst of it.

    1. You totally have to, its so far been a great experience, granted i only have 1 in diapers. But for sure you gots to try this next year.

  3. The trash can is a good idea! I bet it works better than my tiny bucket.
