Last night I made a really bad decision… it sounded good at the time though.
I found a sample thing of Downy softener. We don’t use softeners for multiple reasons… I asked Tia Sallie if she wanted it, and she couldn’t use it either… but when I started to throw it away she gave me an idea that sounded like it would be great.
Cut it open and stick it in the toilet tank.
I knew I was gonna get annoyed with the fake smell… I can’t stand them anymore. But we had it and I hate wasting stuff and its the bathroom so I figured I’d deal with that. And I am, it just gave me a headache when I walked in there… but that’s ok.
What’s not ok is it means there’s softener in the toilet water! HELLO… I rinse the diapers out in there… Baba has not gotten me a diaper sprayer and the shower head to the toilet trick does not work in the new place (oh how I miss that). I don’t mind dunk and swish too much so I’m not throwing a huge fit over that… yet… but now I can’t! And Zavier has started solids so I have to clean them out in there!
I didn’t even think about it until Kalila had an accident (first in 3 days?) and I cleaned them out, gave myself the headache and as soon as I put them in the diaper pail it hit me… Thankfully just a plain pair of panties, but they’ve touched the diapers so I don’t want to pull them out… meaning it’ll get in the wash with all the diapers even if they haven’t been washed in the toilet since then…
Guess who gets to strip the freaking diapers today. All other laundry is now out the window.
Except the sheets. The one thing that saved me from washing a diaper out in there before this was someone exploding on our bed during a diaper change today.
So not happy with myself right now.
