Thanks to Tami for this Frugal Baby Tip!

My great grandma and Madelyn's great great grandma was going down memory lane one night last week with us and she was talking about how she used to have to hand diapers outside in the freezing cold, with snow and frost everywhere because there were no dryers back then and their house was too small to hang them inside.

I was shocked and asked if they ever dried that way and she said that they did, they would usually frost up and get hard as a rock she said but they dried. Then she would just bring them inside and they would sort of thaw and finish drying while they were folded up. So I guess it must work, how else did people back in the "olden days" wash and dry their diapers when there was no such thing as a washer and dryer.
