You know all those online quizzes about being a parent? And articles about "you might be if?" We decided to talk about what makes moms and dads who choose cloth diapers a special kind of parent!
You Might Be a Cloth Diaper Service Parent
Are you still doing home wash?
We know a lot of parents believe in cloth diapers, but either don't know that diaper service is an option, or think it will be out of their budget. When comparing costs, remember to consider the real and important cost of your time!
Just thinking about washing diapers and how often are you going to have to wash them can make you tired! Many retailers suggest more than one wash; 3 cycles that include a short wash without detergent, a regular wash with detergent and an extra rinse to avoid smelly diapers.
But time is not the only issue. Home washing machines are simply not made to handle the high temperatures and multiple water changes needed to get your diapers as clean and fresh as possible.
So what’s the solution?
Use a cloth diaper delivery service
Our service is easy and convenient! Weekly pickup of your soiled diapers and delivery of clean ones and you don’t need to be there.
Our commercial laundry insures that your baby’s diapers meet a high standard for safety and cleanliness (over 11 water changes during washing). Our diapers are tested for pH and absorbency and are sent to an independent lab for monthly testing. We also abide by the RDIA guidelines for segregation of clean and dirty diapers and our clean processing area and the dirty sorting area in our warehouse are divided. Even our delivery van is divided to ensure that clean diapers never are in the same area or come into contact with dirty diapers.
Friends Still Think You are Crazy?
You know how amazing cloth diapers are (and how easy they can be when using a diaper service to wash them for you), but in case your friends still need some convincing, share these facts with them:
Environmental Impact – good cloth diapers can be used on 3-4 children and then recycled
Baby’s comfort – cloth diapers allow for better airflow. That makes it so the moisture that is next to your baby’s skin is more likely to evaporate which means less rashes.
Disposable diapers become hot and sticky inside, cloth does not.
Ease of Potty Training – Cloth diapering makes the sensation of wetness more noticeable to your child. This gives them the feedback they need.
Reliable – Cloth used with our recommended covers catches more blowouts because of the snug fit around the baby’s back.
Solid waste goes where it is supposed to not in our landfills (where viruses and disease can live and contaminate nearby water sources).
