When I had my two daughters in the 60s, the only option was terry towelling nappies, to wash and wash, over and over again, and they were Persil white on the line.

This today might sound gruesome to some, but think about it: how much money could be saved?

I don't know, life has been made too easy by disposables with many thrown in the bin after one use.

A letter this week is in favour of bringing back Terry towelling nappies.

In our time it would have been a complete waste of money.
