  • heck yeah! my cloth diapers were used on all 4 of my kids. every time you wash them is in bleach, which kills all the germs and bacteria anyway. go for it! good luck!

  • No. But then I can't do used underwear, either.

  • Sure, it is the ultimate way to recycle and preserve the environment. You save money, you help save the planet, and your child has the benefit using cloth diapers. It is a win-win situation for everyone. Nay sayers are not being very practical. So, yes, I would used used cloth diapers. I can afford to shop at high end stores but I choose not to. I choose to show, by example, to my child how to shop responsibly and be kind to the earth and others. Used does not mean poor quality.

  • ONLY if they were from my previous children, but likely not. I do NOT buy used undies or socks either. Im just not going to do it.

  • I did. If they are washed, bleached, and otherwise properly taken care of, there is absolutely no reason not to use them.

  • I was given about a dozen. I never cloth diapered and honestly don't know how to. They are the old fasioned ones that you have to pin. Anyways, I kept them and use them as rags. They are great for that. But I just didn't understand how someone could give them away and expect me to use them on my kids. I just can't bring myself to use second hand undies of any kind. I know they are clean once I wash them but I just can't do it. I'm really shocked how many of you would use them...
