How to Wash Your Cloth Diapers

Nature Bumz liked this post

Here’s a great Tip Sheet for washing your cloth diapers.  If you follow these basic tips / directions, you should be able to develop your own wash routine specific for your cloth diapering needs.

**Rule of Thumb: Unbleached Organic Cotton / Hemp / Bamboo & All Natural Materials must be washed 5-8 times prior to initial use.  Prewash all other synthetic fibers only once before use.  This maximizes absorbency.**

Washing101-TipSheet-Pinterest

1.  REMOVE solids with a diaper sprayer / flushable liners and place cloth diapers in a wet bag, or diaper pail.

2.  MAXIMUM water level.  Run the cloth diapers through a pre-wash / rinse cycle using warm or cold water to remove the nasties.  (use only cold or warm water for this stage as hot water may set stains should they form).

3.  HOT water wash.  Wash your cloth diapers in hot water following the detergent manufacturers guidelines on their package.  We recommend The Laundry Tarts Detergent or Rockin’ Green Detergent.  (if you have soft water use a little less detergent, if you have hard water use either a detergent formulated for hard water, or add a water softening agent).  (We recommend Rockin’ Green Hard Rock or Soft Rock Formulas for specific water types).  • Don’t know what type of water you have?  You can purchase a water quality test strip to determine if you have hard, normal, or soft water.

4.  SECOND rinse cycle.  Run a second rinse cycle to avoid detergent build-up should there be any.

5.  TUMBLE dry or hang your cloth diapers.  Hanging covers are the NatureBumz.com way of drying (usually takes a quick 1-2 hours depending on the brand / type of cloth diaper) and fluffing/tumble drying inserts help to maintain absorbency.

**Natural Stain Removal: Sunning a diaper (laying it out in the sun for 1-2 hours after washing and before drying) is a great way to remove stains naturally.  If you need a little more stain removing power, try the Bunchafarmers or The Laundry Tarts Sweet Spot Stain Removing Sticks (they work amazing!).**

Now a Great Diaper is Easier to Use!

We thought we’d seen it all, a great fitting diaper, excellent at preventing leaks & blowouts, a one-size version that fits birth to potty training in the AMP One-Size Duo Diaper!   But AMP diapers have a Stay-Dry All-in-One diaper that’s been on the market for a while now and is becoming one of our newest favourite cloth diapers.  It has a similar design plus everything is built into one.

cloth-pic

AMP’s absorbent micro-fleece protective layer, interior absorption built into the core of the diaper, and a waterproof Cover are all built into this one cloth diaper – no messing around with inserts or doublers.  Not only are these a great diaper, they are also available in 2 different sizes, which means a perfect fit for newborns and when they are ready to potty train.  This now easier to use design allows those who find cloth diapering a bit challenging easy to use.  These AMP Stay-Dry All-in-One cloth diapers will be available at Nature Bumz Co. May 14th, 2014!

We give these a 5 out of 5 for user friendly-ness, absorbency & perfect fit!
