Fluff Friday 103 Winner!

Read the full story here...

Everybody likes free fluff, right?  Well, on The Cloth Diaper Whisperer, we like to give fluff away!  There are the "Fluff Friday" giveaways every Friday, and there are the random "30 Minutes of Fluff" giveaways.  It's always fun to enter for your chance to win, but if you're not sure HOW to enter, it kind of takes the fun out of it!  Well, we're here to help!

Q:  Where in the world do I post my entry?
A:  Right here on the blog!  When the Friday or 30-minute giveaways post, there will be a number of ways to enter listed.  There will be a "Post a Comment" button for you to click on- if there are already numerous entries, you may have to scroll down to find it all the way at the bottom.  If there are no entries, sometimes it will say "0 Comments", and that's what you'll want to click on.  When you click on these, a new page will come up with a box for you to write your entry in.  It will say, "Leave your comment".  An example comment may be, "I'm a fan on Facebook, my screen name is _____ _______."  Then you need to sign in with a Google account (it's free to sign up if you don't already have one).  Submit your comment, and then go back and post your next comment.

Q:  But wait.... Don't I enter on the Facebook DiaperShops or Cloth Diaper Whisperer pages?  It says to become a fan and leave a comment...
A:  Become a fan of the pages, yes, but still leave your comments here, on The Cloth Diaper Whisperer giveaway page- we can't take entries on the Facebook pages.  Entries are ONLY taken on the blog.

Q:  Okay, I posted, and I think I did it right, but my comment isn't showing up?
A:  We have to go through each entry manually to weed out any that show your email address.

Q:  Huh?  Don't you need my email address if I win?
A:  You must have your Blogger profile accessible to be able to win.  But it is the responsibility of the winner to contact us to claim your prize.

Q:  There are a bunch of options for entering... can I enter more than once?
A:  Yes!  You may use each of the options for entering!

Q:  Okay, wait.... where do I enter again?  Do I respond to the post on Facebook?
A:  Nope, we love to hear from you on Facebook, but only entries posted directly on The Cloth Diaper Whisperer blog will be counted.

I hope this answered all of the questions you may have had about the giveaways!  Once you get the hang of it, it's really easy to enter.  Practice on the Friday giveaways, since those are around for a week.  That way you'll be a quick-fire for the "30 minutes of fluff" giveaways.  Good luck everyone!  :)

Giveaway Q&A

Read the full story here...

"I just might need a new dryer. The older low end dryer we currently have is not drying our clothes! Literally, I have to run the dryer for 120 minutes to get our clothes dry. Even then, we may find a few damp items."  I recently found myself telling my husband this as I was browsing at the beautiful front loading HE dryers online. It was true though, I would have to run our dryer for a very long time before our clothes/diapers or anything was dry. It was causing our electric bill to rise and I'm sure it was not good on the dryer to be running that much either. $600...$644....Oh Oh! $475! I have to say, I was kind of excited to be shopping for a new dryer.

That was until I got a little smart. You see, I rarely use my dryer to dry my cloth diapers. I use a $9.99 wooden drying rack I found at the store so that I can sun them. Well after unloading another load of dry...but not really dry clothes...the rack caught my eye. I began to think...maybe I can kick it "old school" and begin drying our clothes on the racks and then tossing them in the dryer for a few minutes at the end to get the stiffness out. It should work until we get a new dryer- so I went out and bought a few more racks to have enough for a few loads of laundry and my diaper stash come wash day.

I have to say, while I was hanging my first load of laundry on the racks...I got a little excited about the money we were going to save in electric and the fact that we were simply not using electric to dry them. Even my two and three year old girls wanted to help me hang some clothes and it turned out to be kind of fun. We let our first load sit out overnight to dry and by the time we woke the next morning- they were dry and ready to "fluff" in the dryer. Ten minutes in the dryer, and I had clean, fresh smelling and dry laundry.  Just a few days of this routine and instead of getting tired of it, I was liking it more and more. If my diapers were out sunning, I'd throw a rack of clothes out there with them and got even faster results. By the time the week came to an end and it was time to go shop for a dryer, I told my husband I didn't want one. I know, I'm crazy. I have friends who are just waiting for something to happen to their washer or dryer so they can get new ones. But I love using my racks so much, that there is no need to go and spend hundreds on a new dryer when my $10 racks were doing a great job. The dryer was getting everything warm and fluffy during the ten minute sessions, and we were saving money and electric.

I can't help but owe it all to my cloth diapers!  Our house has literally gone through a laundry revolution. From hang drying to detergent- everything is different from how we use to do things and it all started with choosing how I was going to wash and dry my cloth diapers. I received an "its not the 18th century anymore" comment from a loved one who saw my racks of clothes and diapers- and I had to laugh, because I wouldn't change how we do our laundry around here- even when I had the chance. :)

The DiaperShops team was at the ABC Kids Expo a couple of  weeks ago digging up the "fluffy facts" on some of our best-selling and favorite cloth diaper brands. The ABC Kids Expo is the largest baby products tradeshow in the U.S. and is held annually each fall. We learned that the popular FuzziBunz cloth diaper company is launching two cool new products this year and we couldn't wait to share the exciting news with our loyal fans!

First, FuzziBunz is launching the FuzziBunz Hemp cloth diaper. We are thrilled that FuzziBunz is offering this greener alternative. The diaper comes in a rich Vanilla color and includes a hemp insert that absorbs like the microterry insert would. The FuzziBunz Hemp cloth diaper inserts are made of 55% natural hemp and 45% certified organic cotton. The hemp is biodegradable too, making FuzziBunz ultra-green! Hemp requires no pesticides to farm and it doesn’t deplete soil like cotton. It also has natural anti-microbial properties, which may aid in deterring mold, bacteria and fungus. The cotton helps to keep the insert soft and flexible. We will have these diapers in-stock shortly - so stay tuned!

Second, FuzziBunz also launched a brand new cloth diaper detergent called FuzziBunz Cloth Diaper Detergent. The popular cloth diaper laundry detergent company, Rockin' Green, has created a detergent specifically formulated for sale by FuzziBunz. FuzziBunz is the name many moms know and trust in cloth diapering, so now they can trust that FuzziBunz's new cloth diaper detergent will make their lives easier and their diapers a little cleaner too! We will have FuzziBunz Cloth Diaper Detergent in-stock in the coming weeks too.

If you haven't checked out FuzziBunz lately, you should! It continues to be one of our most requested and popular cloth diaper brands. Visit www.FuzziBunzOnline.com to see our complete FuzziBunz selection.

Lafayette, Louisiana (October 8, 2010) – FuzziBunz® cloth diapers today announces at the 8th Annual ABC Kids Expo in Las Vegas its new FuzziBunz Diaper Detergent, specially formulated by popular cloth diaper detergent manufacturer, Rockin’ Green.
Tereson Dupuy, the founder of the first modern cloth diaper, FuzziBunz, and the woman who started the modern cloth diapering movement, says she is thrilled to be able to offer this popular detergent to FuzziBunz customers.
“Rockin’ Green offers an amazing cleaning agent that leaves no soap-scum residue and leaves diapers so clean and fresh. FuzziBunz Diaper Detergent was carefully formulated by Rockin’ Green to ensure we are only offering the best cleaning solution to anyone using and washing FuzziBunz’s award-winning diapers along with any other cloth diaper made with fleece too,” says Dupuy.
She adds, “The new FuzziBunz Diaper Detergent has been tested by hundreds of moms, many who have struggled with soap-scum, cloth diaper stink, and residue build-up caused by other so-called cloth diaper detergents."
Kim Webb, founder of Rockin’ Green adds, “We have taken special care to come up with a formula that works extremely well for FuzziBunz cloth diapers and that gets them clean and fresh without any residue build-up or synthetic chemicals or scents. Plus, FuzziBunz Diaper Detergent can cut through minerals and hard water like no other and uses only biodegradable, eco-friendly ingredients… period!”
FuzziBunz Diaper Detergent will be available for pre-sale at the ABC Expo. It is unscented.
Lafayette, Louisiana (October 8, 2010) – FuzziBunz® cloth diapers today announces at the 8th Annual ABC Kids Expo in Las Vegas the launch of its greenest diapering solution yet, the FuzziBunz Hemp™ one-size cloth diaper. This latest addition to the award-winning FuzziBunz cloth diaper line will include a super-absorbent hemp insert rather than a cotton, microterry insert.
FuzziBunz Hemp cloth diaper inserts are made of 55% natural hemp and 45% certified organic cotton. The hemp is biodegradable too, making FuzziBunz ultra-green! Hemp requires no pesticides to farm and it doesn’t deplete soil like cotton. It also has natural anti-microbial properties, which may aid in deterring mold, bacteria and fungus. The cotton helps to keep the insert soft and flexible.
Tereson Dupuy, the founder of the first modern cloth diaper, FuzziBunz, and the woman who started the modern cloth diapering movement, says that adding a hemp insert was a natural decision and one in-line with her mission to provide eco-friendly diapering solutions to new moms.
“Hemp is one of the unique fabrics that can elevate the eco-friendly conditions of the already eco-friendly cloth diapers. Hemp is truly an effective absorbing agent and is very breathable and durable by nature. These factors made hemp an irresistible addition to our line of cloth diapering products and accessories,” says Dupuy.
FuzziBunz Hemp cloth diapers will be available in a One-Size option in the color Vanilla. The diapers are available for pre-ordering at the ABC Expo. FuzziBunz Hemp will retail for $21.95.

About FuzziBunz®
The patented FuzziBunz® pocket diapers are a convenient and sustainable diapering solution for today’s busy parents.  The reusable diapers ensure no leaks, no rash and no waste. FuzziBunz® diapers include three layers: 1) a waterproof outer barrier to keep wetness contained, 2) a soft microfleece inner layer that touches a baby’s skin and pulls away moisture, and 3) a unique, pocket-style opening that enables a parent to customize the absorbency using super absorbent micro-terrycloth pads. Stay-at-home-mom, Tereson Dupuy, invented FuzziBunz® in January 1999 in response to her infant son’s chronic diaper rash and her overall dissatisfaction with all available diapers.  Tereson stitched the first FuzziBunz® in her home and a short time later, the FuzziBunz® diapering movement was born.  For more information about FuzziBunz® cloth diapers and accessories and to find a list of retailers, please visit www.fuzzibunz.com.
