Good Questions: Cloth Diapering in an Apartment?

Thinking about green things, Jill is wondering how cloth diapering would work in an apartment setting. "I really want to try cloth diapering- maybe G diapers, but I'm not sure if I could wash dirty cloth diapers in our building's shared washers...

Is that sanitary? And would they get clean? I certainly can't send them out to a service. Would the only real option be to use a diaper service?"

Good question Jill. Well, we did find information on washing cloth diapers in a laundromat, so we're not sure why you couldn't do the same in your apartment community laundry.

Something to think about is the cost and the effort of washing them if you have to lug them to a basement laundry room in the building. In that case, you may want to look into a diaper service. One thing is for sure - you're going to be doing a lot of laundry.

Readers- please fill us in if you've washed cloth diapers without your own laundry machine and dryer! We're eager to hear your solutions/strategies.
