Use the Right Cloth Diaper Laundry Detergent

Posted by Bridget on 1/7/2012 to Washing Cloth Diapers

If you have cloth diapers for your baby, they can last a very long time if you follow the proper care instructions. One of these is making sure that you only use the cloth diaper laundry detergent that is recommended by the manufacture of the diapers you are purchasing. This may seem silly, but it is important.

Cloth diapers are a little expensive when you buy them outright, but you can get your money’s worth by taking good care of them. They can actually last a very long time – sometimes up to a whole year. That is only one diaper purchase for a whole year, and some serious money saved over that year.

But, the only way that you can make sure that your cloth diaper lasts as long as possible is by making sure that you follow all of the care instructions. This means that you should only use the cloth diaper laundry detergent that is recommended. Sometimes, there are some choices of special cloth diaper laundry detergents to choose from, but you should always follow this instruction.

If you don’t use the right cloth diaper laundry detergent, your diaper could actually fall apart after only a couple washes, depending on how harsh the detergent actually is on the diapers. You don’t want to pay for something only to have to buy a new one a week later. That is not the point of having cloth diapers at all.

Another reason that you should use the right cloth diaper laundry detergent is that some diapers actually come with a warranty on them. This warranty guarantees full replacement if the diaper falls apart within a certain amount of time. But this is only if you follow all of the proper care instructions, and part of this is using the right detergent to wash them in. If you want your cloth diapers to last, you should follow the manufacturer’s instructions and use the proper cloth diaper laundry detergent. If you don’t do this, your diaper may not last and you are violating a warranty if one is present on the diaper that you have.
