No matter how well you care for your baby’s clothing, and no matter how many bibs you use, you will end up encountering stubborn stains that will not go away no matter how you treat them. As I was preparing for baby number 4, I found a handful of cotton onesies that had not made it through to the fourth baby.
Since the onesies had stains they did not make it into the yard sale box, but I felt bad about just throwing them out. Instead I decided to reuse them by cutting out fabric squares for washcloths.
I do the same thing with my boys t shirts, because old cotton t shirts make great cleaning cloths for dusting and cleaning glass surfaces – especially televisions and mirrors.
I usually say that having a baby can be as expensive as you want it to be, but it does not have to break the bank. Choose where you want to spend, and save where you can.
