Tea Tree oil helps with yeast. I add it in the wash cycle. My DD has a very sensative tush and sometimes gets some chafing every so often. Do you know for sure it's yeast? DD has never had it but I've heard good things from the tea tree oil as far as yeast goes. I also add it to her wipes solution.
If it is for sure yeast I would go ahead and strip your cloth diapers and let them hang dry on a sunny and hot day. This should kill what's left in there.
When I strip my diapers I rinse them in cold (so stains are prevented and it gets any left over solids off) wash like normal then rinse, rinse, rinse in HOT water (I sometimes boil a pot of hot water and add to the rinse cycles). You may want to add baking soda and vinegar to the wash cycle too. It helps with the Ph balance of the diapers. HTH!View Thread
I live in Arizona where it's SUPER hot. I planted a mini veggie and herb garden about 3 weeks ago. Now mind you I DO NOT have a green thumb lol. DH and I put up a shade screen on the sunniest side of the porch so the plants wont fry. WELL it was windy yesterday and the sun screen flew off which must have left the plants directly in the sun for too long. I went to water them last night and my basil which used to be so pretty and full was pathetic, wilted and dry. My tomatoes, oregano and bell peppers were kind of limp but other wise I think they'll make it. I watered them ALOT because the soil was dry.
I feel so bad for my garden. I was so excited to have finally picked up a hobby and in one day they're on the verge of death
Any suggestions as to what we can do to revive them again?View Thread
I know it's really hard. I too work FT and am gone 11 hours a day. I have to then come home, try to make dinner, spend time with DH and LO but handle some nightly chores as well.
What I have learned is... stressing over a messy house is a total waste of time. I now know my house will always be messy. I just really try to avoid my house getting dirty though, which I think are totally different.
I prioritize. Laundry, dishes and vacuuming are my #1 priority. I don't stress over toys laying around. I want to spend ALL my spare time with my LO since I work FT so I usually wait to clean when she's sleeping/napping. If I absolutly need to get something done around the house and she's awake DH and I rotate. He watches and entertains her while I do some cleaning and vice versa.
Also, I would recommend getting DH involved in cleaning ASAP. There is no need for all the stress of maintaining a household to be put on you, especially since you work as well. I give DH specific chores in the house to do. Those are HIS chores. I have learned that men (most men I should say) are not programmed like us and will NOT take an intiative (sp?). WIll they wash dishes if they see them piling up with fruit flies buzzing around? NO. Will they usually give LO a bath when they are all sticky with out you asking ? NO. SO I assign duties to him. He actually likes it that way. It prevents me from becoming a major NAG. LOLView Thread
