Cloth Diaper Washing Tips


I have been using cloth diapers for my daughter practically from birth. When she was very small, washing the diapers wasn’t much of an issue because she was only nursing and not eating solid foods. The diapers came clean pretty easily. Now that she is almost 16 months and eats a good amount of solid foods it’s different. I wash the diapers on the longest possible cycle, including a pre-wash, heavy soil setting, hot water, and an extra rinse at the end. This method was working fine for a while but as she got older I noticed that when the cycle was done they still smelled a little funky. I started experimenting with different things in the wash and have finally found something that works…

Cycle:Pre-wash, heavy soil, hot water, extra rinse at the end.
Detergent: Shaklee Get Clean Powdered detergent (this is both effective and safe for the baby’s skin). Use a full scoop in the section for the main wash and a full scoop in the section for the pre-wash


First Addition:add 1 tablespoon of baking soda to both the main wash section and the pre-wash section
Second Addition: add a tablespoon of Shaklee Get Clean Nature Bright to both the main wash section and the pre-wash section

This method has been working great. This way I only have to run one long cycle which saves me time and money on the electric bill. I have tried a lot of different detergents and different things added into the wash but this has gotten the best results.

Cloth Diapers: Why I Love Them

It’s better for your baby.  Whenever I have a choice to make for my daughter my first thought is always – what is the healthiest choice for her? When I was pregnant I thought it would be great to use cloth diapers on my baby. I didn’t know anyone who used them and had no idea where or what to buy. The first month or two after Giulia was born I used disposable diapers because I didn’t have the first clue about how to go about using cloth diapers. After a few weeks of Internet research I decided to give it a shot. I found a lot of reasons why using cloth diapers are better but the reason that resonated with me the most was that it was better for her. Babies who wear cloth diapers get less diaper rash and aren’t exposed to the chemicals used in the diapers. Disposable diapers are made with sodium polyacralate. If you have ever changed a REALLY wet diaper and saw those little tiny crystals on the baby’s bottom, that is sodium polyacralate, which can cause a lot of skin reactions. In addition, using cloth diapers instead of using disposable diapers will reduce your baby’s chances of getting asthma. The Archives of Environmental Health tested 6 leading cloth diapers and 6 leading disposable diapers and discovered that the emissions from one disposable diaper were high enough to produce asthma-like symptoms in mice.

It’s better for the environment. I read an article in Mothering Magazine that explained how there are landfills FULL of disposable diapers and I couldn’t get the image out of my mind.  I don’t want to be a contributor to the mountains of garbage caused by disposable diapers. It is estimated that 10,000 tons of disposable diapers are added to landfills EVERY day.  That’s a lot of diapers!

It’s MORE Convenient then disposables.  Yes that’s right, I said its more convenient then disposables.  Whenever I change a diaper in front of other people, they are shocked to see that I am using a cloth diaper.  “Wow, you use cloth diapers??” or “How much extra laundry do you have??”  Most people can’t even comprehend using them.  I usually do a load of diapers every other day.  Having a baby there is a lot of laundry anyway – it really doesn’t make much of a difference.  I always have diapers on hand, I never have to run out to the store at 10:00pm because we ran out of diapers or wipes.  I also don’t have nearly as much garbage to carry outside to the curb.  I find using cloth diapers much easier and more convenient then disposables.

It saves money.  When I was using disposables I spent close to $100 per month in diapers and wipes.  After my initial investment in the cloth diapers (about $300), I have no monthly cost.  After three months of use the diapers have paid for themselves.  Since I purchased the one-size diapers I won’t have to buy anything else again.

I’ve tried a number of different brands of diapers.  Some of my favorites are GrowVia, Fuzzybuns, and BumGenious.
