How to wash your own diapers

I am going to go ahead and chime in on the subject of ‘how to wash your own diapers’ even though I completely acknowledge that WAY too much has already been written about this subject online. But I would propose that washing your own diapers is much more simple than other cloth diapering websites would have you believe.

Here is what you need:
1) Zero-residue detergent (otherwise your diapers get stinky and don’t absorb well)
2) Your diapers (15 for every-other-day washing, more if you want to wash less)

Here is what you do: Put your dirties in the washing machine, and run a rinse cycle if your washer allows it. At this point you can add some other laundry if you want to make your load bigger. Then add your detergent, and run a regular load on HOT. Dry as usual, either in the dryer or on the line. That’s it!

If you have diapers that have a detergent residue build-up and need to be stripped, your best bet is to bring or mail them in to Bundle and have us run them through a professional wash cycle, the super hot temperature and strong extraction cycle will get them back to like-new.

If you have more questions, just ask us!
