My Green Nappy Discovering Modern Cloth Nappies and Eco-Friendly Disposable Nappies

White Nappies: 3 Reasons Why White Nappies Can Be Your Smartest Cloth Nappy Choice. (+ 1 More for FUN)

White Nappies are the quintessential image that comes to mind when we think of nappies, cloth nappies, disposable nappies – any sort. They are everywhere.

Let us have a look at 3 reasons why a white nappy is still a must have in your cloth nappy stash:

1. Re White Nappies: One colour, a common colour = less cost.

Some colours of nappies are more popular than others, and sell out more quickly. Unlike red, orange, green or pink nappies, it is likely you will always find white nappies in stock at your favourite nappy shops and retailers. White is such a stock standard colour in nappy fabric (all types of materials) that you may well find they are cheaper.

2. Re White Nappies: Baby’s clothing often covers their clothing…

When you have good old white nappies worn under clothes you are not covering up the beautiful design, embellishment, embroidery that you took so long to choose! During winter for instance a cheaper white nappy will be simply under clothes. Pricier prints and more boutique fabrics will cost more; but you may ask yourself what is the point if it isn’t nappy and t-shirt weather!

3. Re White Nappies: Easy to Clean and Sun…

You can whiten and brighten your white nappies simply by hanging them in the sun. Pretty nappies won’t fade in the UV light; stains will magically disappear. Solar power is the friend of the white nappy and allows you to be most environmentally friendly in it’s care.

What’s the +1 About White Nappies?

Naturally unbleached or white nappies are often made of cotton, hemp or bamboo – natural nappies that can be hand dyed to give them new life, as a fun craft activity for you, or to cover stains when the sun will no longer get them out! There are special dyes that are environmentally responsible and do not run when put in the wash.

  1. We have a few white or light coloured (creamy coloured) nappies and white covers in our stash because some of our bub’s clothing is white/light coloured. These clothes show everything through them, so white underneath was much better.

  2. I have opted for plain white nappies.

    I have used nappies with pictures and I had to laugh when people on noticing the wombat design showing through the bodysuit commented that my daughter had done a poo!

  4. Hi Evie,
    What a hoot! I’ve been having a chuckle about your story – I hadn’t thought about that aspect before!
