|Good Diaper Pail

Remove Solid Waste. Shake excess waste into the toilet and use a diaper sprayer that attaches to your toilet to remove the rest. If you don’t have a sprayer you can use a flat edged scraper to remove the rest. We also recommend our OsoCozy Flushable Diaper Liners. With Flushable Diaper Liners you simply shake waste into the toilet along with the flushable liner. Safe for household plumbing.

Easy Cloth Diaper Washing Routine
Wash Before First Use
Simple Wash Method
We recommend that you use no more than 1/2 cup of distilled white vinegar in the rinse cycle. Make sure it is distilled vinegar to avoid stains from vinegars with color.Vinegar may also be used in the rinse cycle to help neutralize the urine odor, equalize the pH balance, help prevent stains from setting in, and as a natural fabric softener.
NOTE: If you have hard water, vinegar may cause your diapers to smell bad once urinated on. In that case, we recommend you discontinue using soap and switch to detergent.

Hot or Cold?
Use Enough Detergent
If you find that you are getting detergent build up, you may need to add a second rinse cycle to your regular wash routine even if you don’t have a high-efficiency washer.

It is easier to remove a stain if you don’t hot wash, which sets stains.
Don’t Sit Too Long
Some caution that their children are sensitive to laundry products with enzymes, but many have used spray-on enzyme cleaner on diapers with no problems at all.
If you find that your diapers are a bit stiff after being on the line, try rolling them around in your hands a bit. You could also toss them in the clothes dryer for a few minutes to let them agitate against one another and soften up.
Cool or Air Drying
If you want to use a clothes dryer but still save energy, try cool or air dry. Since you are not heating the air, you will use less energy.
