    Default cloth diapers

    You can technically wash them in the shower, but that's realistically only good for pee soaked ones. Cloth diapers dry very slowly, unless you stick them in a dryer. You'll also need to invest in plastic pants, which do wear out and require their own separate care.

    You can use bath towels then just need plastic pants you want 6mil babykins sells those.
    The shipping adress say's BKN
    You can get blanket safety pins jo ann's fabricks.
    Then your just using and washing a bath towel safer for you
    Plastic pants hand wash in shower then dry by place in a towel fold towel over top of pants.
    Blot dry then turn plastic pants inside out repeat that will dry them mostly out.
    Hope this helps

    You can rinse out your pee soaked AIO's in the shower, but you need to use a detergent also.
    I rinse my AIO's in the sink and then soak them for 3 hours in my pail. I use Arm&Hammer with Oxi Clean and water to soak them.
    I then rinse them in the shower to get the detergent out. You can figure 24 hrs. if you air dry them to be dry.
    If you live with your parents that could be a problem laundering them and drying them.

    well i do live with my parents but i could wash them while i take a shower and other periods of the day and as for drying them i can dry them while they're at work outside or in my washing machine

    What foxkits suggests is a very safe option. These do work very well. And as others have said, AIOs do take ages to dry. So more chance of getting caught. If you want to add cuteness, there are some very sweet plastic pants.

    Well like most everyone has said cloths do take ages to dry even when you use the dryer sometimes they still take awhile.So since you still live with your parents and you said you aren't alone much foxkits suggestion would probably be your best bet because there would be virtually no evidence of what your doing;because I still live my parents too and even though I'm alone a good bit I still have trouble keeping my AIO clean and hidden

    When I got one AIO and a booster from dependeco, it came in a USPS envelope (via USPS) left in my mailbox. It is pretty bulky, it will probably just seem like a clothing item. Also, it was double enveloped, not sure if that was intentional but I imagine it would help reduce the risk of ripping.

    The different between the cotton flannel and pull is just the most outer material outside the PUL layer (though I am assuming the PUL outer probably is the only PUL layer). I honestly just went with the design I liked best to choose between the three.
