Many parents choose cloth diapers for their baby. If you don’t plan to use a diaper service, keep these essentials on hand to make laundering easier: a pail with a cover, Borax, baking soda, chlorine bleach and white vinegar.
Specific questions? Just ask here.
Fill the diaper pail with warm water and ½ cup of Borax.
Rinse dirty diapers before placing them in the Borax solution. The Borax will help remove stains.
Step ThreeWhen it is time to wash the diapers, run them through two wash cycles. In the first cycle, use dye and color-free detergent, hot water and chlorine bleach.
In the second cycle, just wash in warm water adding white vinegar to the final rinse. The vinegar gets rid of any detergent residue and whitens the diapers. You can also add baking soda to the final rinse to soften the fabric if needed.
