Your link “how to prep cloth diapers” pops up a post on how to strip the diapers. I was able to find the prep post through the link “how to wash cloth diapers” but others may think that is what you advise for prepping the diapers. Just wanted to let you know :)

Thank you so much Carissa, I got the link corrected :)

Thanks for posting so much info. I am sharing it with new to cloth mamas.

I was wondering if you ever use Calgon water softener with your diapers? It was recommended for my very hard water and it seems to work really well. And I know this isn’t usually a recommended detergent but purex natural elements works fantastic for my cloth diapers.


Amanda Hearn October 21, 2013 at 1:09 pm

I have never washed with adding Calgon, but I do know people who have. If it works for you, and doesn’t harm your diapers or baby, I would go with what works :)

My hubby is, um -prissy? He turns his nose up at washing cloth diapers in the same washing machine his clothes go into, eventhough it’s new and has a sterilize cycle! He also squirms at the idea of cloth diapers sitting around smelling. Is there some way to pre-sterilize the diapers, or neutralise the odor, especially while they wait in the pail for laundering? Bleach is out, but maybe vinegar?

Help me address his concerns!

I can’t wait to have my first child and use cloth diapers. I think they will save us so much money.
