- The nursery actually smells good again. I am asthmatic so I can't use any faintly strong smelling air fresheners or things like that or it closes my chest up so I was very happy when I noticed as soon as we switched to cloth, the smell in his room improved a lot. I know it is because the poo goes in the toilet and not just sitting in the trash can till later that day when I can take it out. It might also help that I only have enough diapers for a full days use so I do laundry every day.
- I feel as though my detergent lasts longer. I have to admit I am doing a no-no and using a not so highly recommended detergent on my diapers but the way I see it is I have been using it for almost 3 months now and not had any issues so I might be ok. But back to the point, one would think that with all the laundry that comes with cloth diapers you would run out of detergent faster. Nope. I mean, maybe slowly but to me it feels like it lasted longer.
- No more trips to the store for diapers. I never realized how much time was wasted taking those trips for diapers. Now they can be washing while I do my cleaning. Easy.
- Last but most certainly not least, no more trips to the trash can/dumpster. Granted I got exercise from it, I think that was the only good to come of all those trips. Making multiple trips to the trash got real old real fast and I LOVE not needing to do it any more.
