How do you clean them? Contrary to popular belief, washing cloth diapers isn’t any more difficult than doing laundry; it can even be enjoyable (haha I’m such a jokester). When I was cloth diapering the first time around I’ll admit that I was a bit crazy about the diaper cleaning thing. I dabbled in both wet and dry diaper pails, a diaper sprayer, and diaper liners. This go-around I’ve made things much more simple. In my opinion, a dry diaper pail is the way to go. With fancy scent seals and re-usable liners, they’re just like disposable diaper pails. Many people use diaper sprayers that are like mini showers that attach to the toilet. When your child poos, you can take the diaper to the potty and spray it off to help keep down the smell and lingering residue. I still have my sprayer, but rarely use it these days. Honestly, I haven’t noticed a big difference in the diapers either way. Another popular option is to use diaper liners to aid in clean up and help keep the diapers from staining. I always keep some on hand, but rarely use them. What I found most of the time was that they were wasted on wet diapers. All-in-all, they can be useful, and for the price it’s worth it to have some in your stash. All of my diapers go through 3 wash cycles when they are dirty. The first cycle is a cold rinse with no soap just to clean off any residue. The second is a hot/cold wash/rinse with a special soap made for cloth diapers. The third and final cycle is a cold rinse just to ensure you’ve gotten everything. After that I throw the inserts into the dryer, and let the outers line dry. Simple!
