I grew up on cloth diapers AND disposables so did my cousins. I remember fondly being sent to the bathroom to wet one edge of the "nappie" i think it would be used as a wet wipe. My coworkers explain that it is a mammoth task to wash the nappies but you do it anyway the hard poo goes in the toilet the mushy boo you can leave to soak. Culturally this was accepted practice until diapers took over (cloth nappies are backwards etc etc )and now I find it hilairious that backwards azz nappies were in again. Cloth= no diaper rash

Best thing for whites is the sun. Not even blue cake soap (which will tint you whites blue) or even white cake soap which keeps them real white.

I remember when my helper would hand wash EVERYTHING. no lie clothes be looking like they just been purchased. then she got lazy SMDH. I could still find a washer woman to really wash the clothes though. I mean these ladies bring clothes back from the abyss!

I hand wash my underwear and certain blouses too. but not with a device like TC but my two fists alone.  Generally Jamaicans will call you nasty lazy and worthless if you put your undies in the washing machine. This has changed over the last say decade and a half though

diane i agree that the sun is the best whitener and sanitizer...if i lived in a all year round sunny environment, i'd definately hang dry outside all the time.  but this here hawk in the chi is no joke...Cry
 
at one time, i was using a old fashioned wash board and my hands...but it wreaked havok on my hands/nails...so, i couldn't have that...lol

oh and i agree with bringing clothes back to life with hand washing techniques.  i now realize that the washing machine/laundry detergent combo was resulting in so much soap residue being left in the clothes which in turn makes them look dusty/used up and requires the use of fabric softner...

I don't care to wash my good jeans in a washer, but jeans are harder to handwash imo than shirts...

TC it was such a shock when my helper stopped washing by hand about 3-4 years ago! Clothes and bed lines were so dingy  looking. I think we all use too much soap powde/detergent as well plus i know my machine's gentle cycle is a joke! it still tore up the delicate fabrics.

My mother can wash everything  by hand, she does that with her dry clean only pieces but she's from teh country. I'm a spoiled city kid only undies and blouses for me.

Soaking also helps and i use Ariel detergent leave your items for 20-30 minutes and when you come back everything is out!

KK denim is a heavy fabric so yea it is.

I need a washer womanCryCryCryCryCry

If you took a massive sh*t in your panties, wouldn't you prefer to throw them away though?

SN: how do people wash cloth diapers? scrape the sh*t off in the toilet? throw the sh*t in the washer? rinse in the sink?

I would gag and die, but more power to yall green gals Thumbs Up


IA.

I just found out how cloth diapers really work this year and...no. Just no. I ain't scraping poo from a diaper in a toilet, then washing the diaper in the wash machine or hand washing it. I can barely stand seeing someone elses hair in the bathroom y'all.LOLCry

I know some families with small kids get it for formula and cereal but I'm not sure what the cut off for that is.  I remember back in the day when my folks were going through the struggle we had it. They also gave like beans,rice, fruit,powdered eggs, gov cheese and canned meat BBQ pork and chicken....



Wic has a cut off age at 5 years old I think. You can get it while pregnant and until your kid is 5.
