What To Do with Old Cloth Diapers

One common question about cloth diapering is what to do with old cloth diapers. Those that are hesitant about cloth diapering argue that you will eventually have to throw away old cloth diapers anyway, so there is no reason not to buy disposable diapers anyway.

This is not necessarily a valid point, though. Cloth diapers last a long while – some even up to a year. And then after that, there are more things that you can do with old cloth diapers instead of throwing them away. You can keep them and use them for a variety of other uses, some for your baby and some not.

Burp rags are the perfect example of what to do with old cloth diapers. Sure, you can buy burp rags, but no doubt, you will end up buying quite a bit, even if your baby doesn’t spit up that much, and you will always run out when you toss them into the regular wash and end up using something else as a burp rag. Instead, you can use old cloth diapers as burp rags whenever they are needed and you won’t have to buy more, nor will you run out of burp rags for your baby.

If your baby has outgrown the cloth diapers or been potty trained and you are wondering what to do with old cloth diapers when they are no longer needed for this reason, then you can always use them around the house as cleaning rags. You can always find a variety of different uses both inside and outside for cleaning rags because there is always a need for them. Instead of buying a new bundle of cleaning rags, this is the perfect example of what to do with old cloth diapers. That way, you won’t have to get rid of them.

If you want to know what to do with old cloth diapers, then this article has a couple great examples. These are only two examples of what to do with old cloth diapers, though. There are many more uses for cloth diapers that you can no longer use or no longer need for your baby.
