Learn how to effectively pre-wash and routinely care for your cloth diapers including washing routines, detergent and tips

sloomb Solid Lanolin

sloomb_lanolin_large-1Cloth diapers and wool covers are a great pairing! While you don’t need to wash your woolies after each use, you will have to lanolize them every once in awhile. sloomb Solid Lanolin is smooth and thick. It effectively lanolizes your woolies easily and a little goes a long way.

sloomb lanolin is 100% pure USP pharmaceutical grade solid lanolin with no additives or preservatives. It has very little natural scent and you could use it with a scented wool wash to make your woolies smell joyous and less sheepy. 

Use approx 1 tsp in very hot water to melt it down and mix well or shake in a closed glass bottle if you have one. Add to your water bath and soak woolies for approx 30 min. or longer.

Funk Rock Ammonia Bouncer

It targets funk at the source and leaves no prisoners.

Just 4 tablespoons is enough to de-funk up to 20 cloth diapers in one sitting.

A little to your pre-wash to keep the stinkies from coming back.

That’s right, this little 16oz bag will keep the cloth diaper funk away for over 2 months!

Bummis Fleece Liners

41ifOde6YXLBummis Fleece Liners are great for cloth diapering for many reasons:

  • They give a stay-dry effect with their moisture-wicking properties, which is especially good with natural fiber diapers and babes that are sensitive to wetness
  • They make cleaning of poop easier since they are easier to wash off instead of spraying the whole diaper
  • They help against staining the diaper
  • Act as a barrier if you need to use diaper cream
  • A nice reusable option instead of disposable liners
  • Easy to customize the size since fleece doesn’t need to have a sewn edge
  • Made from Repreve Fleece (recycled polyester)

The Bummis Fleece liners come in a 5 pack and can be used with any cloth diaper.

Eucalan No Rinse Wool Wash

eucalan-woolwashEucalan is a wonderful lanolin enriched wash that is perfect for wool covers for cloth diapering.

It makes washing wool covers quick and easy  – no rinsing needed! The delicate scents are not overpowering – eucalyptus, lavender, grapefruit and unscented.

Of course, Eucalan can be used on other woolly items and delicates and a bottle goes a long way. Plus, you gotta love that it’s made in Canada 🙂

Just Spray Away!

8052093_origSo, your wee one isn’t so wee now and is diving face first into the exciting world of solid foods. As the taste adventure begins, so too must your exploits in dealing with the “new” mess in the cloth diapers. Have no fear – there are lots of options!

You can do the “dunk and swish” in the toilet or use a bio liner….not so keen on those approaches? How about a diaper sprayer? The AMP Diaper Sprayer easily attaches to your toilet and lets you spray away any solids in a flash!

We also have the bumGenius diaper sprayer. Both of these are amazing quality and you can’t go wrong with either.

Bottom line: cloth diaper sprayers will make your life easy peasy when it comes to diapering a munchkin in cloth who is munching on solids.
