I was recently asked if I could go for a week without my washing machine. Beany’s nappies are cloth so my first reaction was what? But I’ve never been one to shy away from a challenge and I think it would be an excellent experiment to see exactly how much more environmentally friendly it is.
So, next month I’m going to pick a week to go without the washing machine. I’ll use a week in this month as a control to compare it to, so I can see how much difference there is. I’ve also been researching old techniques and tips for hand-washing nappies. I’m wondering if I should invest in a good old-fashioned wash board to get me through the week!

Look out for more posts on this challenge and I’d love to know if you’ve tried to go without your washer, or if you always hand wash. Any hints and tips are gratefully received.
