Quick Tip – Don’t Forget To Wash Your Swim Diapers When On Vacationhttp://www.paddedtushstats.com/2014/08/13/quick-tip-dont-forget-wash-swim-diapers-vacation/ http://www.paddedtushstats.com/2014/08/13/quick-tip-dont-forget-wash-swim-diapers-vacation/#comments Wed, 13 Aug 2014 13:00:01 +0000 http://paddedtushstats.com/?p=15715 I was recently on vacation with my family at a lake for a week, and I followed my usual approach to swimsuit care (unless they get something nasty on them, hang them up to dry and wear them again later!).

I was recently on vacation with my family at a lake for a week, and I followed my usual approach to swimsuit care (unless they get something nasty on them, hang them up to dry and wear them again later!). On day 5, though, I was walking down the stairs towards our room and was hit by an unmistakable blast of ammonia. I followed the odor to it’s source, which was …. Emily’s swim diaper. It smelled FOUL!

Quick-Tip---Don't-Forget-To-Wash-Your-Swim-Diapers-While-On-Vacation4

Once I thought it through, it made sense. She had been wearing her Blueberry Freestyle swim diaper, and while I had been treating that like a swimsuit, I had forgotten to take into account the very fine layer of absorbency in the diaper. Who knows how many times she had peed in the diaper while we were at the beach, and over the week enough urine had accumulated to finally reach epic ammonia levels.

And that’s why I found myself, late at night, working very hard to handwash a week’s worth of ammonia buildup out of the diaper when I should have been going to bed. It was so gross (though all I had to work with was baby shampoo, so it was a very FRUITY kind of gross at least!). It actually took 5 or 6 handwashing sessions and then 2 normal laundry cycles to fully remove the odor. I have DEFINITELY learned my lesson!

So I thought that as a public service announcement, I should make very obvious what most of you were probably already aware of: even if you’re on vacation and wearing a swimsuit all the time and not doing any laundry, don’t forget to wash the swim diaper on occasion! Your own swimsuit might be totally fine, but your baby’s swimming attire might not be! :)
