Cloth diapers are an excellent way to ensure your child stays comfy without you having to shell out a big amount for disposable ones. They’re reusable, easy-to-clean and also environment-friendly.
Also, a good condition cloth diaper could come in handy for another child in the future if it is maintained right. Storing these diapers properly is fairly simple, yet essential. Here are some suggestions:
Storing Diapers The Right Way:
Please ensure the diapers are completely dry and clean before the next use. If you haven't cleaned your diapers during storage, stains left over from use will most probably be there for good. Mildew formation can occur if your diapers aren't completely dry.
Avoid using any perfume-based detergents or fabric softeners, especially if you plan on using baby cloth diapers. Their smell could be made stronger. Fabric softeners should never be used. This rule needs to be followed while washing the best towels for babies.
Bulk packing supplies that won't deteriorate, as well as sealable materials to keep dust, rodents, insects, dirt, and moisture out, are ideal.
Allow air to circulate while packing your things freely. To wrap each reusable cloth diaper in white tissue paper, wrap each diaper individually.
To help repel insects, add lavender sachets or cedar blocks in each container.
Maintain the temperature in the appropriate range to ensure proper preservation. Colder and drier locations are most suitable. If the attic is too hot, there is a chance the garage is also too hot; if the garage is too hot, the basement is also likely to be too wet.
High Humidity Regions:
It is very important to seal the diapers away from moisture. Wrap them in tissue paper and store them immediately after drying. To help the environment, always choose #5 plastic.
Corresponding to this, a tidy cardboard box should be placed in a dry and well-maintained location. But make sure that the box isn't contaminated by rats or insects. Bisphenol A, which is included in many plastics, may have an adverse effect on people and the environment.
Dampness, severe heat, and sunshine should be avoided. Sunlight exposure should be avoided wherever your diaper storage space is located.
With these tips, you can safely ensure that all cloth diapers are stored the right way!
