Flats and Handwashing Challenge Day #4

My Wash Routine
I've been trying to make my wash routine as simple as possible. I figure if we are doing this challenge to prove that it is a viable option for those less fortunate it has to be easy enough to do it full time. 

I keep my dirties in a pail without the wet bag. I remove the diapers, liners and wipe then fill the pail with hot water and two tablespoons of Laundry Tarts detergent. I rinse and unfold each diaper and throw them in the pail. I swish them around for a minute and then leave them to soak until the next nap. While I'm waiting every time I walk by I give the dipes some more swishes. Once Naptime comes I rinse each diaper in the sink. This is where I'm still unsure about whether I'm fully rinsing...my water doesn't seem to suds up. So I just rinse til I feel there is no more soap. Then I wring each one as much as possible and hang them on the line. 

This isn't easy, I would never want to do this full time. I cannot wait to be able to use my washer again!
