TIPS on Use of your Cloth Diapers
The best tip to ensure you stick to cloth diapering is to make it easy! Use products that fit your baby well and are easy to clean. Also, try not to have any single-use diapers around so you don't make it an option. To reduce the chance of leaks change your baby's cloth diaper slightly more often (every 2-3 hours) when compared to using single-use diapers. And please always change your baby's diaper as soon as you notice there are any solids to prevent rashes.
Easy Washing - Washing your Sweet Pea cloth diaper is very easy to do!
Simply shake off any solids into toilet. If you are having trouble getting most of the solids off the diaper, we recommend investing in a diaper sprayer which connects to your toilet. Or you can use flushable liners that you lay into each diaper and flush down the toilet when soiled. Solely breastfed baby solids are runny and will wash out in the wash easily.
Put wet and soiled diapers altogether in a dry diaper pail that has a nice tight lid. No need to unsnap quick-dry soakers, but undo all closures for optimal cleaning. Remove absorbent inserts if using pockets. We suggest doing a load of diaper laundry every 2 days or so.
COLD water rinse with no detergent. This step will help reduce stains.
Normal/regular wash on HOT using low residue liquid laundry detergent. We suggest two tablespoons for front loaders and three to four tablespoons for top loaders. Decrease your detergent amount if you experience build-up and repelling and increase your detergent amount if you notice an ammonia smell in the diapers.
If the diapers are really soiled or smelly, we suggest having the diapers go through one more normal/regular wash on HOT with 1-2 tablespoons of low residue liquid laundry detergent.
Another normal/regular wash on HOT this time without detergent. This step ensures most of your detergent residues wash away.
Tumble dry on MEDIUM to HIGH heat for about 45-60 minutes. We use dryer balls to soften diapers and help reduce drying times. Use Low Residue or Residue Free Detergents Today's detergents have many additives that leave residues on your clothes. Because cloth diapers are made to be very absorbent, they hold on to the detergent residues more than our clothes and can lead to skin irritations, smelly diapers, and reduced absorbency. To prevent heavy residue build-up on your diapers, we recommend using only 2 - 4 tablespoons of liquid laundry detergent (if available, as we find liquid detergents wash out more than powders).
Low residue detergents we have used with success:
Rockin' Green Detergent
Just as most leading detergent companies add chemical fabric softeners, some of the main stream "natural" brands contain natural oils or natural fabric softeners that will also affect your cloth diaper's absorbency. Though these natural brands are great for your clothes and environment, we do not recommend some of them when washing your cloth diapers.
Do not use :
All Free & Clear (and other "Free & Clear detergents)
Dr. Bronner's Soap
Some versions of Bio-Kleen
"Pure soap" detergents
Adding Additional Cleaning Agents
You can occasionally add one tablespoon of baking soda to boost cleaning and help reduce smells. Adding ¼ cup white vinegar to your fabric softener dispenser helps strip the soap residue off your diapers and also naturally softens the fibers a little. If your washer does not have a built-in dispenser for fabric softener, you can use a downy ball. Works great! Be careful when using bleach, as it may damage the diaper's fibers and elastics. We don't recommend using bleach. Also, avoid the use of fabric softeners and dryer sheets as over use will result in reduced absorbency.
