Diaper Explosion! (Not The Poopy Kind) – Diaper Shortage Possible
An explosion in a factory in Japan has the ability to create a shortage in Diapers. The factory is one of the primary suppliers for one of the super absorbent materials found in most diapers. The explosion killed 1 emergency responder and injured 35 others. According to the Telegraph, the water-absorbing polymers soak up an infant’s waste through hydrogen bonding with water molecules.
I’ve been having a hard time trying to decide what type of diapers I’m going to use. I imagine this explosion isn’t really going to cause that much of a shortage, it’s probably going to increase the price of diapers. What do you think? Would you change over to clothe diapers to save some money? Let us know.
