Washing Cloth Diapers with Extra Ingredients

We use cloth diapers where there is a rectangular cloth insert that goes in the washable diaper itself. They've been great for 12+ months but over the last few months, it seems like they aren't as absorbant. We're not sure if they absorb water in the washing machine and aren't getting a thorough wash or if they've absorbed a detergent buildup over the months and now don't hold the pee, or if it's something else.

We tried running a few cycles of just hot water, of adding vinegar to the laundry load, and using bleach, but they still aren't as absorbant as they need to be. These are a great product, so we'd appreciate anyone with a tip on how to get them back to what they were...

My daughter only ever washed hers in Baking soda - no detergent at all - in hot water and hung them out in the sun. The 'baby' is now 13 and the diapers are as absorbant as they were when new!

You can strip cloth diapers to help bring back absorbency. I use a simple method of washing clean diapers in the hottest temp possible with blue liquid Dawn dish detergent (1 teaspoon for HE washer, 1 tablespoon for older machines). I also add 1/2 cup bleach because it disinfects and sanitizes. Bleach has always been safe for me but im sure there are alternatives if you don't like bleach. Then a few hot rinse cycles and a regular dry cycle and diapers are more absorbent and odor free.

Will only start water when in wash cycle


  • The diaper pail we suggest using is the size medium Diaper Pail with Carbon Filter, or, if you want a really big pail, the American Diaper Association approved 54 QT Diaper Pail. We sell them at Diaper Safari! They are nice and big andboth have a slot for a Citrus Circle which helps eliminate odors.
  • Try using a mild and environmentally safe detergent like: Bi-O-Kleen, Allen' Naturally or ECOS. You can also use Arm & Hammer for sensitve skin or Sensi Clean - do not use Dreft!
  • A Citrus Circle or a little baking soda some tee tree oil in the bottom of the diaper pail liner will help against odors.
  • Diaper Pail Liners can be our re-usable waterproof pail liners or standard 13-gallon kitchen trash bags.
  • Sprinkle a few drops of BacOut Stain & Odor Eliminator on the diaper if "poop" got onto the diaper itself.
  • Adding a few drops of Tee Tree oil to the main wash leaves diapers smelling fresh and kills bacteria - not for pocket diapers.
  • Sun-dried diapers and covers become snow-white. Try this as often as the weather allows.
  • Use the dryer for a few minutes to soften sun-dried diapers that get stiff.
  • Wash and dry new diapers one to five times before wearing - for unbleached diapers this will remove the natural waxes and will fluff up the cotton, which gives the diapers their absorbency. You will only need to wash the covers, Fuzzi Bunz and AIO once or twice at the most.
  • Spray any solids off with the Mini Shower - it makes makes cleaning cloth diapers very easy
  • Don't let wet and clean diapers sit in the machine overnight.
  • For serious stain you can try something like Spay and Wash.
