I get this question a lot; “How do I store my cloth diapers?” You may want to save your diapers in good condition for another child.
It is pretty simple, but very important to store them properly. Here are our recommendations:
- Make sure the diapers are thoroughly CLEAN and DRY. Any stains left on the diapers during storage will most likely be there to stay. If the diapers are not dry, they may form mildew which will most likely ruin your diapers. Make sure you have used a cloth diaper safe detergent, with no additives, including perfumes. Any odor on them could be intensified. Of course, do not use fabric softeners.
- Ideally, use bags, containers, or boxes that won’t degrade and will seal out dirt, dust, rodents, insects, and moisture.
- Pack “loosely”, allowing air to circulate. Wrap each diaper in white tissue paper.
- Tuck a lavender sachet or cedar block

named Kate in our daughter’s class. However, we tried to avoid names that seemed SO different that they bordered on weird. Unique baby names seem to be a must have in Hollywood. Check out the names these three celebrities chose for their children: Gywneth Paltrow, Jason Lee and David Duchovny.

Be that as it may, I think she should have stuck with either Blythe or Alison (her mother’s name and her mother-in-law’s name) and she would have had a winner. Maybe … Read More
