So I share a house with someone who doesn't know I'm AB. We have our own washing machine, and I'm getting to the end of my current nappy stash. I'd love to try cloth diapers because they're more eco friendly, but I don't want to be That Guy - you know, the perv who does horrible things while their housemates are out and leaves the place in a state that would freak them out if they knew. (I just want to be a responsible and mature perv )
I already know I'd have to keep nappies in a wet bucket if I wanted to wait and wash a load all at once - that's a bridge I'll cross when I come to it since I don't know how often I'd wear really. But the big thing for me is, if I have to do nappy washes, how do I make sure the washing machine is hygienic and clean afterwards so we can still wash things like tea towels that come into contact with food? I'd definitely be using liners if I was going to mess, because ew, quite frankly - is the wash itself enough to clean things through if you're not washing actual poop off things, or should I run the machine empty/wash something I don't care about afterwards to be sure?
And then of course I feel guilty because washing one nappy at a time or running the machine twice is hardly any greener than disposables... argh! Thoughts, anyone?
