If you have a cloth diaper question, never fear; Monday is here! Each week, I answer a user question, and ask my readers what they think.
Questions don’t have to be cloth diaper related, just email maria at change-diapers.com with “Mailbox Mondays” in the subject, or fill out my contact form for readers, which you will always be able to find on my Contact Page.
What do you do with cloth wipes once your little one is past the exclusively breast fed point. I just started food with my little girl and am trying to figure out what to do with her new (quite disgusting) poops! Do you spray off the cloth wipe too once you’re done? Do you use a disposable to get the gushy part off the bum and clean up with a cloth wipe? Am I missing something? Help!
I use exclusively cloth wipes, and I do not own a diaper sprayer. I treat wipes the same way I do diapers (I’ll try not to make this too graphic/gross!) I shake off any shakable solids into the toilet, then the rest goes into the wash. If it is a really messy diaper that doesn’t easily shake off (common when you are first starting solids, a.k.a. peanut butter consistency) I may take a square or two of TP and scrape it a bit.
If I have a lot of dirty diapers on wash day, I might run them through a rinse and spin separately before adding the rest of the diapers, but I have only once had to clean a little poop out of my washer, and that was because I washed a poopy diaper that hadn’t been cleaned off at all (hubby had changed it and I didn’t realize it was full of poop before tossing it in!)
What do you do with poopy wipes?
P.S. Did I say “poop” enough? Wonder what kind of search engine traffic this post will bring me? LOL
