There are a variety of different ways to wash cloth diapers. People have developed and altered routines to fit their personal needs. Overall, you want to use a cloth diaper friendly soap, rinse with cold water first, then wash them with soap and warm water. I recommend washing every day until you have fully gotten into your own routine. I strongly recommend keeping your wash cloth diaper day as simple as possible when you are first starting out.
Breastmilk is water soluble; which means that you can get away with not doing the first step of my wash routine that you see in the video. I used to hose them down with a diaper sprayer, but it didn’t feel like they were getting as rinsed as I wanted. Therefore, I moved into a pre-rinse routine before putting them into the washing machine. I wash every 1.5 days, but before I got into my flow it was everyday. I primarily use pocket diapers and covers. My pockets are LBB (the Amazon version of Alva Baby) and my covers are from Nicki’s Diapers.

I use Tide Original powder to wash and baking soda to combat stains. Click the video below to see how I wash cloth diapers. If you have any questions on how to wash cloth diapers, please leave a comment below!
