I Went SIX Days Without Washing My Cloth Diapers…Oh The Horrors!

December 8, 2014


My poor cloth diapers! I am a bit of a baby-er when it comes to them. I use loop fabric on the tabs to keep them from forming chains in the wash. I hang to dry. I’ve even been known to use a lingerie bag when washing my ‘special’ cloth diapers. How could they survive […]

January 8, 2014


I recently brought up OxiClean on the All About Cloth Diapers Facebook page. And oh boy, did we get a big response. I wanted to know how people felt about using it. Is it a big no no? Or do many moms secretly get their cloth diapers squeaky clean by using it? There was an […]

The Point of No Return

March 28, 2012


Guest post by Michelle. An idea was subtly suggested to me by someone a few months ago; to consider stopping the use of cloth diapers because of the time I invest in their cleaning and such. This suggestion was presented not in a negative way but in a sympathetic way, trying to help me find […]

Cleaning Your Diapers the HARD Way!? With Hard Water that is!

July 11, 2010


What type of water I have was something that I never bothered to think about until I started cloth diapering.  It turns out I have hard water and it really makes a difference in how I clean my diapers.  I never noticed it before because I’ve always used Tide and Gain to clean my clothes. […]

Ammonia cloth diapers burning your baby?

June 21, 2010


We all chose to cloth diaper because it was better for our children.  But, what do you do when the cloth diapers are hurting your baby? I am so sad to say that I am in this boat.  Sterling’s nighttime diapers leave him screaming in the morning.  Not good. I soaked every insert and fitted […]

Washing Cloth Diapers in a Front Loader

May 17, 2010


I anticipated much struggle.  I’ve read the bazillions of stories of moms saying they wish they had a top loader just for their cloth diapers. I went back and forth over whether to buy a TL or FL when my old-trusty died. In the end, a FL made more sense (and they looked prettier :) […]

Cloth Diapers Clean as a Whistle

January 23, 2010


While I was on vacation this past week I saw a video posted on Facebook that I couldn’t wait to get home and share with you! I don’t endorse any one detergent as “the” cloth diaper detergent.  However, Kim of Rockin Green Soap is doing a fantastic job of proving the efficacy of her formula. […]

How The Laundry Ball Changed The Way I Wash Cloth Diapers

July 16, 2008


In the middle of June I wrote a post about removing buildup from your cloth diapers. In that post one of my suggestions was for the Laundry Ball. At the time of writing I didn’t have a need for any of the items. But after spending a weekend camping with no laundry facilities, I came […]
