So, apparently running a set of diapers* through the washing machine and dryer results in a dryer full of a substance with the exact consistency of perfect spring corn snow.

Maybe I'll market it to Killington for summer skiing on Superstar.

Sounds great but got to ask. Why were you washing and drying clean diapers?

I had run out to do a few errands yesterday with my 15 month old. I had put a clean diaper in the cargo pocket of my shorts in case he needed a change. Forgot all about it until I did laundry tonight and had a nice surprise! I opened the dryer to this massive amount of white material that quite literally had the exact texture of spring corn snow from a 60 degree day.

Quite the mess and the consolation prize of having to do the laundry twice!

Chuck, I think you've got a few years before you're skiing in diapers. Burrr, might want to stuff a couple handwarmers down there.

Considering the cost of disposable diapers, we won't be skiing on that stuff anytime soon unless you like the 5000$ daily lift ticket...

Yeah we know they would NEVER put anything toxic in baby diapers.

So ... how many diapers would take to make enough fake snow to ski on?
