Today is the first day of the flats and handwashing diaper challenge hosted by Cloth Diaper Revival.
I think most of you know by now that I love cloth diapers. Last year we did the flats and handwashing challenge while doing a thousand mile road trip. It was REALLY a challenge. This year I’m hoping to see what a normal daily routine might look like when handwashing.
We use flats and covers on a regular basis, so that bit isn’t much of a challenge. They’re easy, especially since I usually pad fold these days, they’re effective, and they’re a system I can use and only use natural fibers. (Last year we used bamboo flats, this year we’re mostly using hemp).
I’ve also voluntarily handwashed last year and while camping before, so that part isn’t new either, but this is the first time I’ll be handwashing at home where the lure of the washer is ever present. Let the challenge begin!

Beautiful Sweet Iris flats ❤ I admire all the mama's who do flats all year round, folding will drive me batty in a couple days!
I admit to mostly padfolding. I like a nice kite fold, but the wiggly toddler isn’t always that patient. Plus, my husband is a strict aio user.
Now that I’ve been introduced to flats I’m all about it! I want to get hemp ones but there are surprisingly (?) not many options 😦 Bamboo would be nice too, but I really want to use hemp.
That’s one of the reasons I do DIY flats. I’ve like the Truly Charis ones as well, but I haven’t tried anything else. Hemp is t as soft as bamboo so even though it absorbs more I think companies are reluctant to try it.
