Dandy Diaper Service hopes to capitalize on cloth diaper rebirth
SOUTHWEST HARBOR, Maine - From a storefront just off Main Street in Southwest Harbor, Hudson washes, dries and folds parents’ cloth diapers and delivers fresh ones every week. Her service provides parents the option of using cloth diapers without having to do the messy cleaning in their own homes.
“You never think, ‘Oh, I’m going to be a diaper cleaner,’” the 33-year-old Georgia native said Saturday from her store, which opened in January. “But it’s something I would have loved to have as a parent, and there is definitely a need.”
Hudson’s two children, a 6-year-old and an almost 4-year-old, are out of diapers now, but she and her husband, a local lobsterman, did use cloth diapers with her youngest. There was no diaper service then, so they did all the work themselves.
