June 11, 2014

13 Comments

Next up in cloth diapers at night series…Wool! In part one, we talked about fitteds. They need a cover to be waterproof. You can use a PUL cover, or even fleece. But I believe using a heavy duty fitted and a lanolized wool cover is your most bulletproof option. Wool can hold 30% of its […]

I ran out of Bac Out about a month ago. I thought I would try to make a go without it. But I have to be honest, I missed my spray bottle of Bac Out. I love using it on our cloth diapers. But I also love using it on our other stinky laundry (hubby’s […]

To bleach or not to bleach; that is the question! Many of us have been there. Something’s wrong with our cloth diapers…there is a stink…or a leak…or maybe a rash that just won’t go away.
