What is your top tip to Mums about washing their cloth nappies?

Lara from Extremely Nappies (closed):

I have a home-made water trigger gun in the toilet, for spraying off solids. Best trick ever though, was to take bub to the toilet every time she grunted or got that glazed look.  I take off her nappy above the toilet (if she’s already pooed it’ll fall into the bowl), then I sit her on the loo, hold her hands and she does her business.  She only pees in her nappies, which makes cloth nappying super easy for me.

(Lara is of course talking about Elimination Communication: You can get a free eBook about how to get started here, or a $2.99 eBook here…)

Susan from Nifty Naps:

Bio degradable liners!

Kate from Bouncing Sprouts:

Don’t be scared to only use about ¼ the amount of detergent you would normally.  Our thumb of rule is ‘less is more’, less detergent = more absorbency.

Sarah from Billy and the Bow Wow:

If my nappies are getting a bit smelly and I don’t have time to do a strip wash, I just add 2tbsp of bi-carb soda to the wash with my laundry detergent and this keeps them going a little bit longer.

Angie from Piggy Tails Nappies:

One trick I love is placing a cotton bud dipped in Eucalyptus Oil stuck to the bottom of the nappy bucket lid with masking tape. It makes the bucket smell so lovely and freshens up my laundry.

Rebecca from Bean Sprout Bubba:

I can’t be without my nappy sprayer! Not only useful in rinsing out soiled nappies, but also good to rinse inserts with teething wee, and to clean up little toilet-training botts.

Therese from Bumbly Bootique:

Liners! Forget sprayers, scrapers, stain removers; liners will help make removing solids a fast, easy and mess free job!

 Helen from Ezy Peezies:

Wherever possible reduce the amount of time nappies spend dirty! I was doing everything ‘by the book’ in washing my nappies but still finding that they had a lingering smell. Since changing to washing every second day at most, this has gone. I recommend leaving nappies dirty no longer than 48hours and if a nappy is particularly messy (and we all know what they are!) rinse as you normally would, then before putting the nappy in the nappy bucket, pop in the machine with the contents of the nappy bucket and run through on a plain rinse cycle. Once done, you can put the load back into the nappy bucket until you have your usual amount to wash, but I found that this really helped with smells, stains and just generally making the nappies feel cleaner.

Jenny from Baby Bare:

Use a clothes horse. Its easier to hang the nappies on. You can hang them the night before and quickly pop them out in the sun in the morning before work or the mayhem of having children starts again! You can bring them in and leave them hanging overnight. If I had to use the washing line I’d be less keen on cloth nappies.

Jodi from MCN Lovers R US:

Buy sunlight soap, its cheap and it works so well! If your nappy still has a stain after a day in the sun wet it, scrub it with sunlight soap, rub the fabric against itself to really get some friction happening, rinse. If its still visible, repeat. I LOVE it!

Erin from Rascal Rumps:

Definitely my nappy sprayer is the thing that makes cloth nappying so much easier.
