**I posted the post below back in 2009 and though it might be useful to repost this year since I get questions about this issue a lot!! :)
How much do you spend each summer on swimming diapers? It seems that every pool and waterpark now requires all children under age 2 to have them… and if you swim a lot during the summer the cost can add up pretty quickly (even when you buy them with coupons!)
I was talking to a friend a few weeks ago about the cost of swimming diapers and she said, “Oh, I just wash and dry mine and reuse them.”
So I thought about how the swim diapers really are more like thicker underwear since they don’t absorb at all very well. And since we are coming up on a family vacation to the beach where we will be going through LOTS of swim diapers I thought to myself, “What could it hurt to try it?”
So I did. And it worked. Exactly like my friend said it would. After a cycle through the washer and dryer they are pretty much just like new…and the elastic is still just as stretchy. Yay!!
