Life-with-toddler is frankly impossible sans Oxiclean. BEST STUFF.
Fuzzibunz even actually directs people to use it for stripping diapers! (Or at least they used to; they might not anymore, but it’s not like their diapers are hella different now.)
On a related note, I spent almost a year freaking out that ANYTHING I did to really totally deep clean the diapers would fuck them up forever OHNOES but then I decided fuck it, they’re cloth diapers, they’re reusable but they’re not IMMORTAL and it’s counterproductive to act like they should be. Washing stuff is never actually GOOD for it, no matter how durable the stuff is. At least with Oxiclean the diapers won’t leak from residue build-up and my kid’s clothes won’t be covered in lengthy spaghetti sauce tracks while they last.
I am excited that we’ll be able to hang them out to dry in the summer/early fall, though, since we have a nice big clothesline now. The inserts will still go in the dryer but it’ll be nice not to have to put the diapers in all the time.
Yesterday I tweeted that few things prepared me for having a child like spending the preceding decade getting semi-permanent hairdye all over everything I own, which is true.
I’m kind of a big deal when it comes to doing laundry. I have a lot of stain removal expertise. Boober is my favorite Fraggle for this reason.
So I’ve always had OxiClean around for pre-treating and whatnot, and I used it on a regular basis, but I never really understood why they push it as an “add to every load!” kind of deal because it’s still pretty harsh.
But now I have a full-fledged toddler who, as far as I can determine from the available evidence, rolls in her lunch every day.
So I think I get it now.

Hmm, I don’t know. I think I still hold Sixteen Candles closer to my heart in greatness.
To be honest I think it’s the practice kissing scene that really makes it for me. I mean, I also find both leads hot, but practice kissing is basically fake!dating squared and y’all know how much I love that trope.
Like basically my dream Tony/Steve fic would be like 87 chapters of Tony giving Virgin!Steve the equivalent of a 2-year masters degree in Make-Outs and Sexy Times.
Also I like the music and the fact that the Other Girl isn’t pointlessly horrible.
jennifer fucking lawrence doesn’t think that bisexual women can have sex with men or have kids, and then referred to bisexuality as a “lesbian phase”
but she said that she likes food! shes so quirky and relatable you cant criticize her! she makes funny faces sometimes! did i mention she likes food!
oh godammit really
This was also news to me although I already knew about her racist fuckery, so…
And then when I was looking this up I discovered a bunch of awful things she’s said about mental illness, specifically OCD and eating disorders—so a lot of her “body positivity” unfortunately comes with a gross streak of policing other people’s bodies and basically mocking their responses to social/institutional trauma.
Jeff Goldblum though. Jeff Fucking Goldblum.
Nelson Mandela died today. MEANWHILE ON TUMBLR…
Your addition to this post is the most disrespectful thing I’ve seen all day.
How shallow are you, that you’re taking the death of Nelson Mandela and using it to try to get some kind of “thoughtful deep serious person” cookie by shaming people for having feelings about pop culture figures on a day when human mortality is still a thing?
