Sure the wet bag is a “must-have” cloth diapering accessory; there are few that would argue with that statement. I, however, want to show you the unconventional ways to use your wet bag. Okay, so these are my ideas, no one else’s, but I think they’re unconventional. You’ve heard that you can use them for your wet and dirty diapers when you’re out and about.
