Got smelly diapers, but you are afraid to strip them using the bleach method? Don’t worry I feel your pain! Having spent hundreds of dollars on cloth diapers, I am sometimes afraid to strip mine, too. Bleach can be so harsh and should only be used in bad cases of odor, staining, and build up.

Here is a better and less invasive way to sanitize your diapers! I like to sanitize mine every season-so about every 3 months or so.

How do I sanitize my diapers safely with peace of mind?

I use baking soda and vinegar!

Here’s how:

  • Do a cold rinse.
  • Use your regular amount of detergent.
  • Add 1/2 cup baking soda and a Downy ball filled to the top with distilled white vinegar.  Start your washer’s hot cycle.
  • After the diapers have agitated, but before the hot water has drained, stop the cycle (this can be done on some washers by leaving the lid up).
  • Let the diapers soak overnight.
  • Close the lid in the morning to complete the cycle.

That is all, folks!

    1. Sarah, you can soak your diapers inside your bath tub! This is a great alternative for mamas with front loading machines. Sometimes, I will even skip the soak and just run a wash in my front loader with vinegar and baking soda alone, for my diapers! Whatever works best for you.
