I wouldn't get all one brand with all the same inner. So, I would probably get the 12 alva then 20 alva.

No doubt. Lots of ladies have good experiences, Rachel seems to get hers from China to OK within days of ordering, but mine always takes weeks on end, and then lost for a month or two before showing up, IF they ever do.

Ok ladies I want to clean my diapers soon.



They are all pre-owned, but I know I need to clean my washer first since I was a HEAVY fabric softener user. I've read something about vingar and bleach on a hot wash? I have a regular top loader.



And for my pre-owned dipes I have
12 GMD pf
1 BG pocket
1BG NB AIO
1 Sunbaby
5 DG Alvas
2 charcoal baamboo inserts
2 hemp inserts
1 bamboo/micrfiber blend
2 snap thirsties covers
1 velcro thirsties cover
1 NB Rumparooz
1 Flip



Do I just wash/dry one time? Or do I need to prep?

Dont bleach them. Vinegar maybe for a sanitizer. But if they're used they should be ready to go.

I would strip your machine with TTO. TTO is VERY effective in doing so, but it does take a good day. And if they are pre owned, just a wash is fine. However, I always stripped new used diapers if I didn't know the source.

Thats what I thought I just didn't want to be wrong. Two of my covers a NWOT though, what do I do with those?

Tea Tree Oil? What exactly do I do?



And what stripping routine do you use? They were all bought online/craigslist so I do want to wash then first.



Also I use dryer sheets, do I need to clean my dryer?

For your machine, drop a few drops everywhere. Do not do more than 5 drops though. Do a drop in the tub, then in each compartment. Then do a heavy wash cycle with nothing in it. Then rinse until you smell nothing. Most likely you will smell a cross between a wet dog and skunk and dead fish at some point. If you do, no worries, it's working. Just keep rinsing until it's gone. As far as stripping diapers, I stick with the method in the OP. Lots of people use dawn, and I use it in a pinch, but the only time I have found it to work as good as the strip method in the OP was when I had to remove oily diaper cream.

Oh, and dryer, I am not sure. To be on the safe side I would just clean the inside of it with vinegar.

I sometimes use dryer sheets on my regular laundry and have never had an issue.
