Fluffy Friday! Bum Genius Detergent

Ok so we've mentioned a few different brands of cloth nappies and have a whole lot more coming soon but I know you must be wondering about the WASHING part of it.

Well I'm here to tell you that it's not as hard as you might think. It's actually pretty simple. Make a routine of it and you will never go wrong!

There are many detergents that you can use as long as you use half of what they recommend on the box or bottle and that you stay far away from fabric softner. Softner stays on the fabric and coats it which then repells any liquid which = a leaking nappy = miserable baby and unhappy mamma.

We will be chatting different ways and products to use when taking care of your cloth. Lately we've been using BUMGENIUS DIAPER DETERGENT and it's working pretty well.

It is free of dyes, optical brighteners, fragrances, enzymes and phosphates. There are 66 loads (based on front loader usage) per box and the scoop has been specially designed for cloth diapers. The product is packaged in an award-winning, environmentally certified box. It is certified for use in HE washers. It is approved for use with bumGenius diapers.

I do a wash with this and then do another rinse with either vinegar or bicarb to make sure all the detergent has rinsed off and won't result in build up.

We'll be reviewing more detergents soon.
