How To Clean Cloth Diapers And Keep Them Looking Brand New

By Law / September 12, 2017

In this video I’m showing you how to clean cloth diapers so you can keep them looking brand new.

Krystal and I chose to invest in cloth diapers with the intentions of saving money. I think that was a great decision on our part because so far we have saved 100’s of dollars.

When considering investing in cloth diapers you have to put up a few hundred dollars up front. We bought ours here for $186. If you think about how much disposable diapers cost per pack (depending on the brand too), they can range from $25-50 per pack.

When you have a newborn, you can end up going through 5-8 diapers a day. That adds up pretty quickly. I remember buying a new box every other week. That’s about $50-100 per month. See how that added up so quickly?

With cloth diapers, you may have to buy disposables for emergencies, but I’ve bought a box for Nona maybe once every 2 or 3 months (depending on how lazy we’re feeling haha). Also, you have to wash your diapers regularly. We have 30 diapers (we were given two free) and we probably wash them twice a week. When we get down to around half the diapers used, we start washing.

Many of you may wonder, how do you wash cloth diapers? Do you throw them in the washing machine? Does poop get everywhere?

Well, in this video I will show you what we do to keep them not only clean, but keep them looking brand new as well. I won’t say this is the ONLY way to wash cloth diapers, but it works for us. I just wanted to share this with you in case you may want to try it.

If you have a baby on the way, and you’re interested in getting cloth diapers, here’s a list of places where you can buy them (some of these are affiliate links and are meant to support Law TV):
