I've just been listing some nappy nippas and bits and bobs for sale. I can't bring myself to sell my small size fab quality flat terry nappies.... I keep telling dp that they will comeinhandy for years and we should keep them.
I miss seeing them flapping on the line
They are too heavy to post cheaply so I'd have to sell them for pennies. I keep thinking they will pay for themselves in terms of dusters things!
He says we are moving to smaller house and that I promised to get rid of everything we don't need.
But I can't. I really caaaaaaaaaaaaan't.
So please tell me all the uses for old flat nappies that i can tell him tonight
Or am I 'just not ready' and I'll be able to let go of them at a later stage?????
I cant get rid of mine either! Although as you said some of them are being used as dusters now. Well done for having 2 over the age of 40 by the way, gives me hope that I could have another in the future!
Could you not just keep a couple for yourself and then donate the others to someone who would really love them and get lotsof use out of them but would otherwise not be able to have such nice washables - I'm thinking maybe someone at a womens refuge or homeless charity. That way you would still have a couple to be attached to, but you would know that the rest were helping someone else to do the best for their lovely baby and you could imagine them being all snuggly round another tiny bum and being used for their original purpose?...
-They could be used as hats/ear muffs in the cold weather -Wrap around feet and used as slippers -Wrap around toliet seat and dadah, instant cushioning for you bum on cold mornings -Attractive cushions for the back seat of your car -Travel cushions/pillows -Fold into oblonge shape and used a wrist rests for when your mning -Book covers -Oven gloves
How about donate them to a charity?? I collect nappies that get sent to Malawi to make up baby layettes (2 nappies, pin, wrap, baby grow, vest, outfit, hat) and distributed free of charge to people in need. Keep a few as a useful keepsake though!
my terry nappies are 13 years old. They have been used A LOT! but they are not needed any more, but, because I have kept them looking good (and more importantly VERY CLEAN!) I know use them as tea towels.
