Quoting Halley Nicole:" I want to cloth diaper but it seems like its difficult and takes a lot of time to wash nf what not ? Is it reall as time consuming and hard as it seems?"no, it actually isnt as bad as what some people say(people who dont cloth diaper). its just like doing normal laundry, except u do a couple more washes. it just depends on your washer. mine takes a couple times before they really come clean cause i dont like when they still smell like pee when i put them into the dryer, so if they still smell then i wash them again. and depending on what type of diaper u use. i think pocket diapers are easier for me, i just wash and dry them then put the inserts in them and stack them on my changing table. if my son poops, most of the time its kind of firm so i can just plop it into the toilet, but if its a more runny poop then i rinse the diaper off before i put it in the basket. some people use a trash can with a lid on it, but i just use a small laundry basket, cause to me it seems like if u have a lid on it, there is no where for the smells to go so every time u open it, it smells really bad! and i keep the laundry basket in my sons room and i never smell it.

Quoting The Biscuit Farmer.:" What's the easiest and most effective way to wash (especially stripping) when you're using a laundromat and have to pay?? "
Quoting Ailey+Lennon+Renner's Mom:" id get all natural fabrics, synthetics like MF will hold onto funk. also a good detergent is key. alot ... [snip!] ... tide. you can hand rinse before going, use a long wash on hot/hot and then another short wash with no detergent then dry."
Quoting The Biscuit Farmer.:" Microfiber would be Bum Genius, Fuzzibunz... like everything, right? And by hand rinsing beforehand, ... [snip!] ... I just use a diaper sprayer and soak them really well, not using any kind of soap, and THEN do the hot wash with detergent?"
Quoting Jeiden&Ciana's Mami :" My diapers dont really smell when I take them out of the washer/dryer but once my daughter pees in them ... [snip!] ... smell. Does that mean I need to strip them. What is the best way? If i add vinegar to my normal wash routine will that help?"
Quoting Ailey+Lennon+Renner's Mom:" it means your getting ammonia. vinegar works good in some waters, and not good in others. what kind of diapers do you have? you could try 1/2 cup of bleach soak, or RnG funk rock."
Quoting Jeiden&Ciana's Mami :" i have alot of different brands. i bought all my diapers used ecept for my recent batch of 10 alva ... [snip!] ... babys. but its not really an ammonia smell, but there is definitely a smell and im not sure if i have hard or soft water."
