If you've decided to use prefolds, then you've taken the first step toward keeping your baby fresh and comfortable with a minimum of expense. Prefold cloth diapers are wonderfully soft, absorbent, and will last through use by more than one child. Even after your diapering days are over, you'll find these cloths to be amazingly handy around the house for cleaning and soaking up kids' drips and spills. Based on our many years of experience, we carry 100% cotton, heavyweight prefolds that are diaper-service quality. We also carry hemp prefolds for our customers who want a product completely free of pesticides. Either choice will give you many years of service. We also carry the diaper pins and other accessories that you may want to assure that you'll be incredibly satisfied with your choice to cloth diaper your baby.

Cloth Diaper Pail: Wet or Dry?

There have always been two choices for storing your diapering materials until wash day: the wet method or the dry method. Some people prefer to keep a wet cloth diaper pail, in which you fill the container about half full with water and a pre-soak such as vinegar. However, we have found that dumping and replacing the water every day, keeping curious kids safe from the potential drowning hazard, and dealing with a heavy, sloshing container of water on laundry day just isn't necessary. Today's powerful washing machines are completely capable of cleaning prefold cloth diapers and other styles even if they are stored dry. If you're really worried about stains and odors, a little pre-rinsing before tossing the diapers into the storage bin will help with those issues.

Diaper Junction offers a convenient pail with built-in carry handles, perfect for storing your dirty cloths until laundry day. It even has a slot in the lid to hold your deodorizer. Little things like choosing the right storage container will make your diapering days even easier.

Diaper Pins Secure the Fit

While a pin is not completely necessary if you use snug-fitting covers or secure folding techniques, many people do still prefer the added assurance of a pin or fastener. Diaper Junction has diaper pins designed with your baby's comfort and safety in mind. Choose attractive, colorful pin styles with locking tops to keep the point well away from your baby. For all your accessories, such as a cloth diaper pail or diapering fasteners, you can rely on Diaper Junction.
