What are the pros and cons of disposable diapers vs. cloth diapers? I know that cloth ends up being far cheaper in the long run but is it worth it? Has anyone in the CR used cloth for their kids?March 27, 2018 3:29 pm at 3:29 pm #1499816MenoParticipant

So you need a hechsher on the farm where the cotton grew then. How do you find out?March 27, 2018 3:50 pm at 3:50 pm #1499937Avram in MDParticipant
Note that you should tovel the disposables too if you use them more than once.March 27, 2018 4:04 pm at 4:04 pm #1499946

No, because, by reusing it, you are in essence the one who made it into a keli.March 27, 2018 4:59 pm at 4:59 pm #1500069CTLAWYERParticipant
We used cloth diapers for two of our oldest children because of allergies/skin reactions to the disposables.
We used a diaper service and they dirty diapers went in a covered pail in a shed next to the back door. Back then (about 40 years ago) it was $5 per week per child. Pampers cost about $25 per week per child.
We have 2 grandchildren using cloth diapers. Our daughter has a separate washing machine in the basement for the diapers (she bought it on Craigslist for $50).March 27, 2018 7:26 pm at 7:26 pm #1500072jakobParticipant

I take it you’re joking about toiveling diapers. Diapers aside, does anybody actually say this sevara regarding disposable keilim?March 27, 2018 9:09 pm at 9:09 pm #1500091👑RebYidd23Participant
My family has a minhag to try to avoid rashes year round, but I don’t think they’re chametz.March 28, 2018 12:06 am at 12:06 am #1500150
