Posted by Bridget on 1/7/2013 to Cloth Diaper How-To

Cleaning cloth diapers is a lot easier than people think. It actually only requires three steps. This article will explain to you the three easy steps to cleaning cloth diapers so that you will know what you are doing and will make the least mess you possibly can when cleaning your baby’s cloth diapers.

The first of the three easy steps to cleaning the cloth diapers is the removal of the diaper. Now, different diapers require different methods of removal, so how you do this will depend on the type of cloth diaper you are using for your baby. Some of them require the removal of an insert and replacing it with a fresh one, but others require the removal of the complete cloth diaper.

The next of the three easy steps to cleaning cloth diapers is getting the diaper ready to go in the wash. There are a few parts to this, depending on the mess the baby made. Especially soiled diapers need to be sprayed of with a sprayer of some sort. Some people invest in a sprayer that will spray right into the toilet. Secure all of the Velcro pieces on the diaper and it is ready to go into the wash.

The third of the three easy steps to cleaning cloth diapers involves the actual wash that it goes in. You actually have to wash the diaper twice – first in cold water, then in warm water. This ensures that the diaper actually gets clean and doesn’t get damaged or worn out. Just remember when you are washing the diapers to use the recommended detergent for them. Hang the covers up to dry and put the liners or cloth diapers on cool in your dryer. If you prefer, you can hang everything up to dry. This is much easier.

If you are cloth diapering, then you need to know how to wash your diapers. This is a very easy process. The three easy steps to cleaning cloth diapers that were introduced in this article are all that you have to do in order to clean your diapers completely for reuse.
