Laundry, laundry, laundry

Do you ever feel like it is never ending? I had 2 sick kids today so I have now washed all the blankets in my house. I feel like I have been doing laundry all day! Seriously I think it was 8 loads today. I can't wait for summer again to be able to hang stuff on the line.

One load was cloth diapers and as I was filling the machine I was noticing how many different brands and types of diapers I have. I have enjoyed using cloth diapers and I think they are so great for Wyatt (not to mention they are sooo cute!).

Seriously how cute is that bum :)

I have made my switch to natural laundry last year. I use Rockin' Green laundry detergent (sometimes Nellies) and I switched to dryer balls when I can't put clothes on the line. I find I get a lot of static with dryer balls and have been researching some natural ways to avoid all the static in the winter. Any hints would be greatly appreciated!

Well I should get going and put away 8 loads of laundry.

Vinegar will take care of static for you. Use it in your rinse or spray static filled clothes lightly with a mix of water and a small amount of vinegar. Add some lavender oil as well if you like. :)

Thank you! I will have to try that. I have a queen size comforter on my bed that has been static filled since we brought it home and I have not been able to get rid of all the static, I think I will try this today :)
