What type of diaper would you recommend to someone who has to pay every time they do laundry?When I first looked at cloth diapering, I eventually decided to go primarily the prefolds with covers route for this reason she gave:
Prefolds are a really “safe” bet for the laundry mat because cotton is really easy to care for. You don’t have to be as concerned about contracting build-up from someone else’s detergent left over in the machine. Cotton prefolds are also inexpensive to purchase, so you can add a lot to your stash for a small investment. So if one is ruined or left behind at the laundry mat, no worries!
