Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. Hey cloth diapering parents! We haven’t chatted about cloth wipes in quite a while. Do you use cloth wipes? I have been using cloth wipes for diaper changes for almost four years, and I must say they are so much better for nasty diaper changes. I have tried flannel wipes, cotton wipes, hemp terry loop wipes, and more. For extra ….
*detergent c/o BALM Baby Have you ever tried soap nuts? Of course, they aren’t really soap or nuts for that matter. Soap nuts are really dried berries from trees in the Himalayas. These berries contain high levels of sapponins, providing a detergent free way of reducing water surface tension, so fabrics can release dirt and grime. You can actually use a handful of soap nuts or berries as a detergent ….
Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. What’s in a diaper cream? Does it matter? You bet it does! We research diaper brands and types, laundry detergent ingredients, fabric origins, but not diaper cream? It would be silly not to! Whether your baby is just a bit red, or has open sores, you likely care about ingredients in your diaper rash cream. Especially if your child has ….
With the popularity of cloth diapering rising more and more, there comes a huge boost in information and opinions about it as well. One area that creates much debate in the cloth diapering world is washing your diapers. With so many opinions about detergents and their ingredients, which do you use? Well, not all detergents work for all households due to water mineral content, filtering, washing machine model, load ….
I would like to talk about one of my favorite cloth diapers today. Tiny Tush is a brand that often gets ignored in the cloth world for reasons unknown to me. Perhaps because they tend to not do glitzy ad campaigns. What is great about Tiny Tush? The brand is completely made in the USA! Even the PUL (polyurethane laminate) used to make the diapers is made here. Not very ….
*Diaper c/o Glowbug Cloth Diapers Pocket diapers are incredibly popular. As much as I like other styles of cloth diapers, our home stash is made up of at least sixty percent pocket diapers. They are easy and straight forward. They consist of a fleece inner lining(or similar stay-dry fabric), a water-proof PUL (polyurethane laminate) outer layer, and an insert for absorbency. Inserts can be purchased in a wide variety of ….
More detergent. Yeah, yeah I know. There are a few detergents I never tried since I heard they worked terribly with hard water, or just plain didn’t work anywhere. Well, our new place has slightly softer water than our last apartment, so I decided to give Charlie’s Soap a whirl even though I have *never heard good things. I am sure Charlie’s is a fine company. I might even ….
*Sample Diaper c/o Organic Caboose If you are new to the cloth diapering world, the on going list of terminology and acronyms can be overwhelming. Flats, prefolds, pockets, Snappis? AIO? AI2? PUL? For those needing a starter sheet, feel free to browse the Cloth Diaper FAQs, the Cloth Diaper Info & Troubleshooting, and Diaper Laundry pages. Otherwise, let’s talk about fitteds. Like any other type of diaper, fitteds have strengths ….
I see a lot of people looking for wipe solution recipes or even just all purpose cleaner recipes. I have done the internet search myself or even asked around and more often than not, the answers are far more complicated than they need be. What do you need in a wipe solution? Water. And if you like, a way to reduce the tension in the water to make it ….
