Cloth Nappy Care Tips: Keeping Your Cloth Nappies Sorted and Organised Ready to Use…

What’s a helpful tip for keeping my nappies sorted after washing and drying?

Many Nappy Experts are invited to contribute to these cooperative questions so that you get a range of informative and experienced responses about the topic. Enjoy and discover something new, and share with us in the comment box below.

Let’s see what tips our Nappy Experts have to offer about sorting cloth nappies:

How do you remove stains from modern cloth nappies?

Katerina from Twinkle Lily:

I usually keep all the shells hanging with booster next to it, so if hubby needs to pack up washing he knows which is the booster which belongs to which nappy.

*** A good hint when purchasing nappies is looking for a coloured or print inner, making it almost impossible to mix up boosters due to their colours/prints.

Michelle from Sustainable Hemp Products:

Put them together straight after washing, and if you can’t remember which goes with what -don’t be too worried if you use different boosters in different nappies as long as it works.

Rebecca from Bean Sprout Bubba:

After washing and drying I reassemble the nappies: Stuff pockets, snap down one size nappies to appropriate settings and snap in inserts for AI2s.

I usually keep nappies that are used for night time separate from the day use nappies.

If I used daycare, I would store daycare nappies in my daycare bag/daycare prep area.

Yoland from Bumbino:

A husband like mine is pretty good. He is a champion at sorting nappies!

Nyssa from Snow Pea Nappies:

This can be hard if you have a lot of brands in your nappy stash but it’s easiest to sit down and put all the nappies together at once, and most brands have some way of reminding you which bits go with which nappy, e.g. colour coded snaps, labels sewn on the inserts.

Nat from Little Diamond Bums:

Dry them on a clothes horse all together. Clothes horses can easily be moved outside on a nice day or put over a heating vent in wet weather. If you use prefolds hang them on their first fold. So you can fold them up as you take them off the line. Wicker baskets or boxes are great to keep under your change table; one basket can hold complete nappies (easy for hubby to grab and use) the other with inserts/ prefold / covers.

Liz of Real Nappies NZ:

A great way to keep everything simple is to fold your nappies and pop them under the change-table so that they are ready to use as soon as it gets to change time. This makes change time quick and easy every time.

  1. We have a number of different brands, with various inserts and boosters. I normally just bring everything in when it’s dry, and put the nappies together, so that they can just be grabbed from the drawer and put straight on at change time.
    Once set up, I normally sort into fitteds needing covers, covers, AIOs/pockets, and AI2s, extra inserts, boosters, wipes. So each type has its own section in the drawers, so we can grab whatever it is we want for that particular change with no hassles.
    My husband rarely sorts/folds the nappies, and is quite happy for me to do this, he just wants the nappies ready to go at change time!
