Do you cloth diaper to save money? I started that way. (Don’t tell my husband, but I might not finish that way.) Isn’t that one of the biggest benefits of these things? Saving money? You seriously will want to check this post out. It’s packed with tips that will put more dollars in your pockets…pants I mean, not the cloth diaper, lol.
You can make something at home that works almost as well! When to use RLR on your cloth diapers…
- You have hard water. Washing soda is a water softener.
- Cloth diapers smell nasty and unclean.
- Cloth diapers smell of ammonia.
- Leaking or repelling. There are many causes of leaking, buildup can be one.
- You purchased used cloth diapers and want a “fresh” start.
Gather ingredients, mix, add to your favorite spray bottle and you are ready to go! Inexpensive and easy!
