Washing Diapers 101 – The Best Way To Wash Cloth Diapers

1 Comment

Washing diapers should be simple.  Really.  You shouldn’t need lots of special rules or excessive rinsing or stripping to keep your diapers clean and functional.  Follow these quick and easy steps to worry free cloth diaper washing.

#1) Rinse – Do an initial rinse or short wash cycle without detergent.  Cold or warm is fine.

#2) Wash – A HOT wash with detergent.  Use the proper amount of detergent for your load size and type of washing machine as recommended on the package regardless of whether you use a commercially available brand or a cloth diaper specific brand.  What detergent should I use.

#3) Rinse – This additional rinse is somewhat optional as all wash cycles are followed by a rinse anyway.  So, this ends up being a rinse on top of that rinse.  It’s generally a good practice to make sure all detergent residues are gone, but, if you don’t do one and you aren’t having smell, repelling or rash issues, then don’t worry about it.

*The above applies to any washing machine whether it be a top loader, front loader, high efficiency (HE) machine or not.

There you have it.  Easy peasy.
