Since so many women are grossed out by reusable feminine products, is cloth diapering gross too?

I posted something earlier about reusable sanitary pads and the vast majority of those who commented were grossed out. What do you say about cloth diapering? How are the two ideas different?

  • I have used, preferred and will continue to use cloth everything. If for no other reason because I have very sensitive skin (and so does DD), so disposables aren't very pleasant. Plus, that smell in the trash is not nice, either,whereas the cloth ones get rinsed out and it takes forever for there to be much of a smell (from my experience).

  • Both are fine. They can both be cleaned so nothing bad about it.

  • Carrying a used pad/tampon around is gross to me, but worse is washing and reusing something of that nature. I'm sure it's hygenic and all somehow, but definitely not for me. That being said, I am not into cloth diapers either. I wouldn't want to have to scrape or rinse anything off just to wash it. The two are so far apart. Cloth diapers are atleast somewhat common.

  • I dont know how those pads work but that just seems odd.. its harder to get blood out of things than other bodily fluids i would think.
