You Can Clean Your Cloth Diapers
The number one reason families *do not* choose cloth diapers as an option for their growing family is hesitancy about laundry and getting their diapers clean.
Let’s debunk this a little and talk about how we can overcome it! If you are in cloth diapers part or full time, you probably have seen a plethora of differing opinions and misinformation when it comes to keeping these pieces of fabric clean. Something previous generations did without issue is now a hot mess of confusing jargon, “approved” wash routines and clean “tests” that take time and open Pandora’s box of fixes with the added bonus of worry that your diapers could actually be harming your baby with trapped bacteria.

When you hold your tiny little baby in your hands, you will spend countless hours marveling at the exquisite detail of their little body. The toes, the fingers, the ears, the nose…And you will also spend countless hours marveling at how that perfect little body can produce SO MUCH POOP! An absolute machine dedicated to not only generating copious amounts of it, but also being able to project it across a room and into your master closet across the hall (true story). The good news is, even at this stage, diaper laundry is incredibly easy. Until your baby’s bowel movements change form from liquid to semi-solid (meaning it isn’t completely runny and has some texture to it), absolutely nothing needs to be done with it.
