I have heard SO many Moms tell me horror stories of their babies getting horrible rashes with cloth diapers. Some poor babies were left with scarred bottoms. Many Mommies gave up cloth and returned to disposables because of the rashes. I have heard many stories, many differant diapers brands, but the one common factor is their detergent. They used Bi-O-Kleen detergent or Bi-O-Kleen Bac-out.
If your baby developes rashes with cloth diapers run your diapers through several hot washes without any detergent, then run them again with white vinegar in the rinse cycle, then run them again with just hot water. Then switch detergents!
I'm sure that many people have great success with the above detergent, but many have had problems so keep this in mind when choosing which detergent to use. At the first sign of problems change detergents.
Babies heinys need tender loving care.
Wishing your babies soft fluffy happy bottoms,

- Hello my name is Marie. I have four healthy, beautiful children. When our latest blessing joined our lives in November 2008 we decided to do the best thing for her and our planet. We went the cloth diapering route. During our search for cloth diapers we found limited availability in our area. We knew that we were not the only family facing this dilemma. Together we decided that we were going to help bring the green trend of cloth diapering to Franklin, TN. So here we are! We specialize in American made cloth diapers and baby products. Spreading the love of cloth diaper fluff and American made stuff one baby at a time. www.greenpixiebaby.com won’t you join us in saving our planet and parenting green?
