Economical Diaper Laundering

Clean White Cotton Diapers

After emptying diapers in washing machine, rinse on a cold cycle. Then wash on a warm or hot cycle. I use a bar of Ivory soap to wash my laundry, rubbing it against a scrub pad under the water to dissolve a small amount. It is the cheapest "detergent" I know, and does not contain harsh chemicals. It can leave a deposit in your drain, especially if you, like us, do the rest of your laundry with cold water. An occasional hot water load should prevent this, however, and if a clog happens, it's not too hard to put your garden hose down there and clear it with a strong flow of water.

To dry them, hang them in the sun until they are almost dry, then pop them in the dryer for a few minutes to finish them off. This will prevent them from getting too stiff, although if it is a warm, windy day, you might not have that problem.
