How to Wash Cloth Diapers

Cleaning your diapering supplies is simple once you find a system that works for your lifestyle. When considering cloth diapers vs disposable diapers, many people are concerned that washing at home will take too much time or will not provide the thorough results that they want. Here are the basic steps that you'll want to plan for to keep your diapering materials clean and fresh:

  • rinsing dirty diapers with water right after removing from your baby
  • storing in a wet or dry storage pail
  • prewashing using your clothes washer's prewash cycle
  • washing with detergent
  • checking for cleanliness
  • drying thoroughly by hanging on a line or using your dryer

Once you've covered these basic steps, you'll know how to wash cloth diapers for the best results possible. For more detailed information, spend a few minutes browsing our helpful "how to" articles. Caring for your diapering supplies will become a normal part of your routine and will head off those last-minute, expensive runs to the convenience store to buy more disposables.

Cloth Diapers vs Disposable Diapers

People who haven't actually tried natural diaper materials may think it's too difficult to make the natural choice. But when you really examine the facts of cloth diapers vs disposable diapers, you'll see that disposables are the choice that cost more to make, cost more to buy, and ultimately end up in our landfills for years to come. In addition to cost and environmental concerns, a diaper made of cotton or other natural materials is better for your baby's skin. Instead of trapping in moisture that may eventually cause uncomfortable rashes, a natural diaper usually is changed more frequently, leaving only soft, smooth material on your baby's bottom. The result is a more comfortable, happy baby.
