DAY 2 NOTES:
- Last night went really well. I used two of the Hemp Babies Flat Weeds folded up into an origami fold. They were soaked in the morning, but absolutely no leaks! Oh, and I used a Blueberry Coverall on top.
- Washing yesterday went well. I washed 5 flats, 2 washcloths, and 3 diaper covers (some of these were from the weekend). They all washed up very nicely. The birdseye flats dried the fastest (1hr). The hemp and bamboo terry flats took 2 hours. The covers and wipes (double sided wipes) took three hours. Just for reference I live in CA with a dry temp of about 95 degrees.
- Today I plan on trying some different folds. I need to try more than just the padfold and the Origami fold.
