At first, I would do a hand pre-wash, which was way too much considering that I was not alive enough in the middle of the night to do that and I was going through too much soap washing them individually. But, I thought I had to do a prewash or they would stain and ohhhh boy, being meticulous the way I am, a stained diaper would about drive me over the edge. Anyone who knows me, knows this to be true!
So I began using Noah's bathtub as a makeshift soaking bucket. Initially, that worked well because all I had to do was a rinse off the diaper and then let it soak in the tub with some OxyClean and there were no stains! However, this presented a problem when I wanted to give the little guy a bath and it was full of diapies. Ack! So, hubby, came up with an ingenious idea. Recycle our empty kitty litter container for use as a soaking bucket!! Yessss! It is big enough to fit all 20 of our chunky monkey's diapers and it has a lid and a handle! Best of all, it was free...score!!
