Misconceptions of Cloth Diapers: “What It Isn’t”
The Experience of Cloth Diapering: “What it feels like!”
The 101 Basics of Using Cloth Diapers
Spray off the Poo Dude
Load Em Up, Throw Em In
The reality is, I do a load every day or every other day, as needed. I have 18 total diapers, 2 are white and I have them only as backups and so the other 16 I rotate. Which if you change 13 diapers in 24 hours, that’s to be expected. I only clean one poopy diaper a day as I’m breastfeeding and she only has movements every 1-3 days right now. When she begins eating solids, my job only get easier because it’ll be more solid poo. Not this liquid goo I’m dealing with right now.

Diaper Cleaning Supplies You Will Need:
To clean your cloth diapers easily invest in a diaper sprayer and toilet splash bucket set, and some good clips to hold the diapers in place. A claw tool should come with the bucket or sprayer so that you can easily move the wet diapers about to spray easily and quickly. To ensure they dry some before I throw them in with the other wet pee pads, I squee them with a rubber glove over the toilet.
- Toilet Sprayer
- Splash Guard Bucket
- Claw Tool (to manipulate the diaper during spray cleaning)
- Rubber gloves
- Dedicated trash bit
- Washable liners to keep dirtied diapers between washes
Conveniently I just purchased all of these in this awesome little bundle for about $100! It took my husband 10 minutes to set up. Couldn’t be easier. (Not to mention it can be used as a bidet…)
I recommend the bundle because the sprayer that comes with this package is $60-70 by itself, and so is the bucket and tools sold separately. So for $100 you can get everything or buy separately, you’ll spend more like $150. I really do like the Aquas sprayer because of its nozzle for water adjustment on and off, is a thumb slider. I can gently wet the diaper or I can use the water at its full power, full force! Other attachable sprayers require you to hold down a lever with only one setting. Plus, with the number of diapers I clean, I really don’t want to have to hold down a lever to control the water. I’d much rather slide my thumb and go about my cleaning. It makes using cloth diapers make sense right from the beginning. The easier the better when your putting in the extra effort to save yourself hundreds of dollars a month.
