Dirty Diapers …. Stink!

Do your diapers stink?  Guess what, all dirty diapers stink! Disposables just mask the odor. It's completely normal for dirty cloth diapers to smell bad. The longer you leave them sit, the worse they will smell too. When was the last time you sniffed a diaper genie that smelled good? You don't need to rush into stripping your diapers if you notice smells on dirty diapers. Tips: 1. While it's not necessary, prerinsing your dirty diapers before putting them in your pail or wet bag lessens the smell.  Be sure to squeeze out the excess water before placing them in the pail.  To make life easier, this step can all be done with a Spray Pal! 2. Open pails actually allow air to circulate and many parents notice...

The Ugly Truth About Cheap Cloth Diapers (Knock-Off Cloth Diapers)

The Ugly Truth About Cheap Cloth Diapers (Knock-Off Cloth Diapers)
Diapers can be expensive.  Disposable diapers aren’t cheap and many families are turning to cloth diapers as the solution.  When a family starts looking at the price of cloth diapers ($10-30 each) they question whether it’s really going to save them money.  It is estimated that the average family can save up to $2,000 per baby by switching to cloth diapers.  Cloth diapers can cost a family anywhere from $50, for the most modest and simplest stash of flats and covers, to upwards of $500 for a complete stash of 24 bumGenius 4.0 pocket diapers and accessories. Almost every day in the Kelly’s Closet Cloth Diaper Support Group on Facebook we hear questions and comments about brands of diapers like Alva, Sunbaby,...
