When it comes to cloth diapering, parents tend to stress about a routine when it comes to washing & drying. When I was new to cloth diapering, I was so nervous that if I had washed them the wrong way, it would ruin my whole stash! However, as I learned a simple routine, I stuck with it and everything has been simple and fabulous ever since. The main thing to know when washing and drying cloth diapers is to treat them with lots of care. If you treat them well, they could possible last to your next child!

Caring for cloth diapers also means washing them with the right detergent. Unfortunately, when it comes to cloth diapering, not all detergents are made equally. Some detergents can clog the pores on your diaper’s inserts which could potentially ruin the diapers, if not decrease the lifespan of them. Who wants to risk that? Luckily, there are specially made laundry detergents out there for cloth diapers! We sell Charlie’s soap, which can be found on our website and that you may purchase here. It is gentle, chemical free, and all natural. Do not use bleach or fabric softeners on your diapers during the wash.

Here is the easiest & most widely used method to washing your cloth diapers after each use:

  1. Cold rinse without detergent.
  2. Hot wash with detergent. NO BLEACH or FABRIC SOFTENERS.
  3. Second cold rinse after wash.
  4. After wash, tumble dry on LOW in the dryer or hang them outside to dry.

Happy washing!

  1. This is the same method that I use. I usually do my pre-rinse on hot though. I’ve been considering whether to just do it on a cold though because that would be nicer for the electric bill. I have very hard water, so I have to add calgon to all of my rinses! It’s a pain in the butt!
