Are your cloth diapers starting to get stinky? After much use cloth diapers can start to retain the urine smell. There are so many differant opinions on how to handle this problem. What we do when we start to notice that our diapers are not coming out as fresh as they should is run a presoak with baking soda, followed by a cold rinse with white distilled vinegar, a hot wash without detergent, and a second rinse. If the weather is nice out try line drying your diapers in the sun. The sun does a great job of sunning out stains, and freshening up your diapers.
As I noted in prior blogs, if you rinse your diapers off with a diaper sprayer or in your laundry sink after each use before placing them in the diaper pail this will help keep the urine odor from building up.
For us natural ingredients are always the best option and almost always less expensive.
Wishing you a wonderful cloth diapering day! It is still chilly here in Franklin, TN., but we are looking forward to using our laundry line come spring!

- 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?
