Tuesday's Tip... Uses for cloth diapers
All mothers have used cloth diapers or burp cloths. When our triplets were born, we used so many burp cloths each day it wasn't even funny. I mean, just maybe I can laugh about it now, but the spitting and spurting was relentless. Gerber and Carters owned me. I couldn't buy enough of their soft cotton burp cloths. These cloths were what some of our mothers used for cloth diapers with the little diaper pens. Interestingly enough, they do not create a lot of lint and are a fabulous way to go green.
You can use old burp cloths as cleaning rags. I love using them to wash and dry windows or glass top tables. My favorite idea is to throw one in your beach bag. How many times have you been to the beach and found someone crying because they have sand in their eyes? For us, it's every single time we go! Sand seems especially attracted to little eyes. If you have a cloth diaper/burp cloth in your beach bag, you can wipe those little eyes and faces without wetting an entire big towel. They are soft and easy to use! You have helped save the earth by re-purposing something you may already have in your home! So don't throw those babies away, keep them for your beach bag or for cleaning cloths!
