1. Diaper Pail
Using this simplehuman Slim Plastic Step Trash Can, you can throw those smelly diapers right into this trash can. I especially love the secure slide lock on the front so you those mischief babies and pets are not getting into this mess! I also love the slimness so it can go right beside the changing table.
2. Spray Pal
Even though it’s not necessary, I would HIGHLY recommend it because after cleaning cloth diapers in the toilet it without it, poop splashes everywhere..onto the toilet seat, the floor, and everything near the toilet. Then your left to do additional cleaning up….yuck
3. Diaper Sprayer
This bumGenius Diaper Sprayer saves your hand from doing the original ‘hand dunking’ in the toilet. Before you throw the diapers in the diaper pail, BE SURE to rinse them off first. I only rinse them off if it’s poop, if it pee I just throw those right into the diaper pail. If you are breastfeeding your newborn you do not need to rinse the poop out since it’s water based. When they start eating solids be sure to rinse them out. Adjust the nozzle for the right pressure and you can easily get the stubbornness of stains out of your cloth diaper. Also great for when it’s that time of the month! Extremely easy to install.
4. Wet Bag
The Planet Wise Wet Diaper Bag is great for on the go! It come in 3 different sizes and tons of cute prints! The inside has a waterproof (PUL) layer so no worries about it leaking. To wash it, just throw it in with your cloth diapers load. After using it for over 3 years, this baby keeps all those nasty smells inside the bag.
5. Cloth Diaper Safe Detergent
I’ve had great success with Charlie’s Soap. OR you can make your own laundry detergent that is safe and gentle for baby’s clothes and cloth diapering here (this is what I’m currently using). Charlie’s Soap is great for cloth diapers, but for all the families laundry as well! It does not irritate babies skin, biodegradable, and safe for the environment. Does it get out the stains? YES! As long as you get out the stains before hand with a diaper sprayer you should have clean diapers. Use bleach every now and then but check your diapers manufacture because some advise against this. And MAKE SURE that NO wet bag with a print is with the cloth diaper wash if you’re using bleach or else it won’t be so pretty anymore.
6. Reusable Pail Liner
Every diaper pail needs a bag and this is the bag that you NEED to put inside. The Planet Wise Reusable Diaper Pail Linear has the same PUL fabric as the Planet Wise Wet Diaper Bag. You will get no leaks with this bag! I would recommend you get 2 of these so that when you throw a cloth diaper load into the washer you have a second one in the pail ready for the next diaper change.
That’s it guys! Those are the must need items for ultimate cloth diapering success!
What else would you add for cloth diapering success?
