Recently, I wrote of the Cloth Diaper Essential Accessory - a Mini-Shower Spray! We use it regularly in our home for cleaning soiled cloth diapers.
Another one of our essential cloth diapering accessories is our 32 oz. bottle of Foaming Action BacOut Stain & Odor Remover. BacOut contains natural enzymes and citrus/botanical extracts that help remove organic stains and smells.
Here's how we use BacOut Stain & Odor Remover in our home:
Cleaning Diapers: After rinsing the soiled diaper with the mini-shower sprayer, we wring the excess water out and then douse it with the Foaming Action BacOut Stain & Odor Remover. Then we throw the diaper in the diaper pail, washing the diapers upon our next laundry cycle. Sometimes really tough stains will leave a mark, but these can be naturally removed by laying the diapers out in direct sunlight for a day.
Cleaning Covers: When we change a diaper cover (we use separate cloth diapers and diaper covers, as opposed to AIO diapers or pocket diapers), we place the cover in a small bucket, spray it with BacOut, cover it with warm water, and leave it for an hour or so to soak. After a good soak, we rinse the diaper with warm/hot water and hang it to dry. If the diaper covers get soiled, we wash off the soiled area before soaking them in the bucket.
Clothing and Linens: It is rare for our cloth diaper system to have leaks, but when it happens, we have safely used BacOut on ours and our baby's clothing or bed linen stains. I have also used BacOut on cloth menstrual pads with success.
Potty Training Accidents: We are currently potty training, so our daughter is often diaper free around the house. As you can anticipate, accidents do occur; when they do, we clean up the liquid and wipe the area with a cloth soaked in BacOut. This has really helped to control urine odors on the furniture and carpet.
Pet Stains/Odors: BacOut successfully cleans up stains as well as neutralize odors from pet accidents.
BacOut removes odors and stains, keeping our cloth diapers fresh. We use it to clean cloth menstrual pads, clothing, linens and remove pet stains and odors. Our family would certainly recommend the Foaming Action BacOut Stain & Odor Remover as a cloth diapering essential for any home.
