Hahaha. He's 14 months. It was just 2 days of poop in one. lol. But I just rinsed it in the sink and it was fine. :)



And you can get flour sack towels at Target, Walmart, or stores like that. I got mine from Meijer. Usually they are in packs and come to about $1 a piece.

eek! lol sometimes i wonder how on earth people do this!?!(rinsing out stinky poop) I stopped rinsing in the sink, and started scraping the poop with a plastic fork lmao nasty! im going back to rinsing in the sink with gloves. *whispers* do you want to know something nasty?? i left the fork rinsed on our "dipaering stuff shelf" it wasn't washed just rinsed(i was in a hurry) and today i told hubby i hope you didn't use this fork for anything(while i was throwing it out) he made this face :shock::o why?! im like "oh, no!" he said "i was using it to scratch my back and head" lmfao! :(
if only there was a washing machine that took care of that! like an ALL IN ONE washing machine*sights*

Lol! I'm only rinsing that one because I'm doing the handwashing challenge with flats this week. Otherwise I scrape what I can (usually everything) into the toilet then toss into the pail. Lol.

Herm, after some searching, I guess I'll make wipes out of flannel and terry. Now if I could get my serger to stitch right. Why I thought I could just open it and sew like a pro I'll never know. haha

I'm jealous, I want a serger! I sewed mine front to front, then flipped and top stitched em. Works great, but it made the whole process take far too long. Speaking of which, I need to make more wipes! DH keeps taking them to use for who knows what, and DD steals them for babydoll blankets and diapers. :?

Hubby got it for me for xmas as a "I'm a super douche and suck at gifts and suuuuper owe you" gift. haha Then he effed up the budget and had to take it back and waited a few months to rebuy it for me hahahaha



But yeah, I got so tired of turning and top stitching for my craft business.

Mine got me a Bernina 1300MDC serger for my birthday. Love that thing!!! Of course, it wasn't a huge deal for him to do since he owns a sewing and vacuum store. I wanted one and he got tired of me making him bring one home all the time. Or I'd go in and hang out in his store all day with my projects. I already had an awesome sewing machine, but needed the better serger for my diapers.
