28. I can remember helping my mother with little sister's diapers.

The part you described about rinsing them out in the toilet first was especially gross!

When you think about the resources that were used for the cloth diapers process, you wonder which is more damaging ecologically--cloth or disposable. The cloth ones were laundered everyday, using water, soap, electricity. Meanwhile, the Pampers are around for 550 years, so that's unacceptable, too!

It would be great if some smart person out there could invent disposable diapers that performed well, but were better for the environment!
