OUR DAILY PINS

Alright, how about we post up some tips we might have stumbled across for cleaning our cloth diapers...Or just our cleaning routine. I'm sure we'd all appreciate some tips :-)

I'm about to strip my cloth diapers with vinegar...they've started to smell a bit even after a really good washing, so I'm hoping that washing them after adding a little vinegar might help.

For stains, there's just nothing like sunshine. Another Mama told me about that, and I didn't believe her. Here I am months later, and I just throw any stained diapers out on a clothesline for a few hours.

For pocket diapers or AIOs, I really believe that you've got to get them in the wash as soon as you possibly can have a big enough load. Otherwise, I swear they hold onto that stink a little too long.

How much vinegar do you use? Do you do a whole cycle with it? Just a rinse?

My routine is to do a cold rinse then wash hot with Maggie's Soapnuts. We've been cloth diapering for about 5 months now and have no smelly issues! I'm interested in how others do it, too!

When my son was a baby, I used a few drops of tea tree oil in the wash. I only used vinegar about once a week.

I live by Original Blue Dawn for stripping.

Also don't use fabric softeners or bleach.

I've been cloth diapering for almost 5 years now.

I agree to the sunshine! It really bleaches the stain away. For me (and don't be too shocked) nothing has worked quite as well regular Tide. I know. It is crazy. I have hard well water out here in the country and every "cloth diaper friendly" detergent leaves my dipes smelling like ammonia. Even with calgon. But with Tide I get stink free diapers. I want to try soap nuts, but I am afraid of the same thing happening.
