My Wash Routine #Updated

photo 1 (3)t

I have been cloth diapering our girls for many many months now and I have always followed a simple cloth diaper wash routine that I thought was working good for us. I have been hand-washing all of their clothes on Sundays. But a month back I decided to quit hand-washing because it was eating up all of my time and energy. And that’s when I decided to tweak my wash routine so that I could do but cloth diapers and clothes at a time, which would directly save me a hell lot of time and water!

I thought many mommies might be struggling with this just the way I did, so here’s my updated wash routine for all your lovely moms! 🙂

This is how I do:

  1.  Start with rinsing the diapers with cold water to avoid staining them.
  2. Then I do a second rinse also with cold water. Each rinse take 19 minutes approximately.
  3. Then I throw in all of their clothes and wash them on 40 C for about 45 minutes.
  4. Once that’s done, I give two extra rinses to the whole load so there’s no residue left behind.
  5. Then I line dry all the clothes and diapers in Sun.

I bleach all of my inserts once in four-five months. Also I use a very little amount of detergent for every wash.

What’s your wash routine?? Am I doing mine right??? Tell me in the comments below. 😀

  1. Hey Haajra!

    I just toss ’em into the wash every alternate day. If there is an poopage on them, I rinse it off before putting the diaper into the pail.

    I only strip them once they start to “keep” the odour even after they come out of the dryer. I think you know what odour I’m talking about! This happens only once in about 4 months or so.
