If you lived in an apartment and had community washers...?

Would you think it was gross that some mom was washing cloth diapers in the washers everyone else uses? Just wondering, I though about cloth diapering for 5 seconds, but because we didn't own our own washer I didn't think it would be polite to do that at the apartment...

  • I wash my cloth in the machine. I am sure everyone else washes their gross stuff in there too. I just try not to think of it.

  • Nah, I really wouldn't worry about it. I'm sure people wash all sorts of nasty things in there...sex sheets, work clothes, and clean ups from their kids "accidents". I'm all about disposable diapers though.

  • I dont think it's a big deal. Sometimes accidents happen and all of a sudden there is shit all the way down a kids pants or whatever. or throw up on a shirt. all kids of things. besides, it's not like the mom just leaves the poop sitting in the cloth. Most of them have a system of getting rid of most of the poop before throwing it in with the laundry.

  • I'd worry more about what might be on top of the washers in a public laundry room...I'm just sayin...

  • I wouldn't worry about it. If you're really that concerned about what the other people who use the washers would think, just dunk the diapers in the toilet first, to get all the extra stuff off of it.
