Start with a Good Diaper Pail

For the easiest cloth diaper washing routine, start with a good diaper pail. We recommend a diaper pail with a secure lid such as the 54-quart diaper pail we offer. The flip-top lid makes it easy to open and close the pail with a dirty diaper in your hand.

CLOTH DIAPER LINGO: Dry Pail = no water added, no soaking. Your pail will probably be quite wet with urine, but you don't add extra water to a dry pail system.

CLOTH DIAPER LINGO: Deo Disk = deodorant disk. A 2" round disk of heavy paper saturated with odor absorbent oils. Fits in the lid of a diaper pail.

Odor Control

Remove Solid Waste. The best way to keep the smell at a minimum is to remove as much waste from the diapers as possible. This is not an issue with newborn babies and breastfed babies.

Shake excess waste into the toilet and use a diaper sprayer that attaches to your toilet to remove the rest. If you don’t have a sprayer you can use a flat edged scraper to remove the rest.

Wash Frequently. Wash at least every 3 or 4 days.

Avoid Heat. Keep the diaper pail out of the sun and away from heat sources.

Deo Disks & Diaper Pail Deodorizers. Use diaper pail deodorizers such as Citrus Circles deo-disks, which contain natural, scented citrus oils, or Diaper Buddies, which deodorize diapers and add a laundry booster to your wash.

Dry Pail

Soaking diapers in a wet pail---that is, adding water to the pail---is not necessary.

Everything Together

You can put the diaper covers in with the diapers, but be sure to close hook and loop fasteners before putting them into the diaper pail to avoid fibers collecting in the hooks. This not only keeps the hook from holding tight to the loop but wears out your diapers faster as it tears at the fabric.
