Cloth Diapering Wash Routine

One of the things that made me hesitant about cloth diapering was the dreaded wash routine. I didn't want to commit to an elaborate daily routine. I knew my hands would be full enough with taking care of the little one.

Like many other new moms I did a lot of research on cloth diapering. Weighing the pros and cons to determine if doing laundry every day was worth it. Searching for the best way to wash our cloth diapers without spending too much money, time, or energy.
