How to wash cloth diapers. Step 1: Remove any solid waste. If your baby is solely breastfed, their poop is water soluble and technically doesn’t require any special Step 2: Put the dirty diaper into a pail or bag, until you’re ready to wash. Washing cloth diapers. Wash dirty diapers and diaper covers in a load separate from your other laundry.
You can wash the diapers and the diaper covers together unless they have different washing instructions from their manufacturer. Don’t overload the washing machine, or the diapers won’t get as clean and the friction between them will cause pilling of the fabric. Before You Wash Cloth Diapers You don’t have to make a big effort to clean up cloth diapers before you put them in your diaper pail or wet bag. Some parents swish them in the toilet or use a sprayer hooked onto the toilet water supply to spray off the mess.
Diapers that are just wet can get tossed into the bag immediately. Step #2: Wash a Load of Cloth Diapers First, dump all the dirty diapers in the washing machine and run a cold cycle to loosen up and get all the gunk out of the diapers. Once that first cycle is done, just turn the washer back on and add detergent. Wash the diapers in a washing machine.
Use hot water, and do not add fabric softener. Fabric softener can reduce the absorbency of the diapers. Use 3/4 of a cup of vinegar, instead. It will keep your diapers soft and absorbent. Put the diapers through a hot wash cycle.
The water temperature needs to be between 110 and 140 degrees Fahrenheit. If you have used detergent. Use your washer’s highest water level. Pre-rinse with cold water and no detergent.
Use a regular warm water cycle and cloth-friendly detergent (a detergent that rinses clean and cleans well!). Dry diapers in the dryer or hang dry or a combination of both. Clean poop from diapers according to instructions mentioned above.
Do a cold water rinse Do a hot water wash with Tide + Oxi Powder (I fill the scoop to the #1 level. Depending on the hardness/softness of your water, you may need to adjust this, but start there). The basic steps to washing cloth diapers include: Remove any solid waste from the diaper, prefold, or insert by spraying the diaper down with water.
Or you can also swish the soiled diaper around. Stripping cloth diapers, which removes mineral build-up from leaky, smelly diapers, is also recommended once in a while. Stripping diapers is as simple as running them through several hot, detergent-free washes.
To remove diaper cream residue and stubborn stains, rub some dish soap onto the diapers and rinse thoroughly before washing.
