Whats the best way to prep my diapers?
Im very new to this.



I have bamboo, mf and charcoal inserts. Theyre pocket diapers Im using.




Also do you know if I can make my own powder detergent that is safe for cloth diapers?

SO CUTE!!! :)



My newborn fluff stash is finished already. :( I want to buy more tiny stuff.



I just got 6 thirsties size 1 diapers, 4 thirsties duo size 1 covers in aplix, 3 thirsties duo size 1 in snaps, 1 bumkins newborn (it was only $5 so I figured why not try it out...), 50 infant prefolds (I think diaper rite), and 20 newborn gmd red edge organic prefolds. Plus I ordered 4 newborn bum genious seconds all in ones. lol. I spent a total of like $170 so I think that's pretty good. :) Especially since I'm using the infant prefolds on my son too...

They say u can use the borax, washing soda, and zote or fels naptha mixtures. But I've read reviews that say they can cause buildup. One cd safe detergent list said u can use straight borax (gave it 4/4 stars as safe) but idk for sure.

Are they new or used? Because my new stuff (I don't have much lol) comes with instructions on how to prep... When I buy used, depending on what it is, I just do a regular wash or I got a bunch of prefolds and things that I used RLR on because I had to try something else for my stinky microfiber. Took the stink right out of them!

I don't think there is much prep to do but they should each have their own instructions.



As for detergent, I'm afraid to make it because I have an he washer... But I did just start using Allen's and I LOVE it.

I made some and I'm worried too. But I read the worst that happens is it can gunk it up. But I use vinegar as fabric softener so I'm praying that keeps it healthy haha

Detergent: I found this recipe I've been meaning to try:

I need to invest in some 5gal buckets for detergents and such.

What I have always been told is that washing soda is too caustic for cloth. I am sure people use it with success though. There are cheaper options out there. Hell, Sun F&C is $6 for 100something loads at Big Lots, and that's regular loads not diaper loads which needs less, and is perfectly safe since it is plant based, NOT petroleum. It is rated 4 gold stars on pinstripes chart as well.

Ah, thanks for warning me. I book marked it but didn't look too far into it. DD1 has been potty trained for a while.



Did not know that about Sun. I'll have to look into it.

I have used it many times without any issues. I use it on my clothes when I cannot get to Sams for Eco's since Big Lots is right down the street.
