Cloth 101: Washing your Wet Bag

Prepping Your New Cloth Diapers

BGwetbag_banner

Let’s talk about washing your wet bag. But first, if you’re not familiar with a wet bag, you can learn more about this cloth diaper accessory here.

Most people who use cloth know that a wet bag is used to tote and store soiled diapers and/or clothes, which means it can get gross. Especially on the inside. Just think about all the smells, moisture, liquid(s), and BACTERIA a wet bag contains. Or don’t… because YUCK!

Washing your wet bag is just as important as washing your cloth diapers. Wet bags can create a warm, damp and dark environment that is perfect for mold and mildew to grow – though it doesn’t have to be with regular washing and sanitation! As a general rule of thumb, we recommend washing your wet bags the way you would cloth diapers. Just keep the following in mind:

  • WASH REGULARLY!
  • Turn the bag inside out if washing in a machine. This will ensure you’re rinsing away all the goodies.
  • Do not use the sanitize cycle on your wash machine. It is TOO HOT for the PUL like it is your cloth diapers!
  • Tumble or line dry. Do not expose your wet bag to high temperatures.
  • Use the same detergent as you would for cloth diaper laundry. Always choose one that works effectively for your family. Remember, some detergents contain ingredients such as perfumes, dyes, optical brighteners, and fabric softeners that may leave residue on fabric.
  • Follow all manufacturer washing instructions for best results.

PS: Don’t forget about your pail liner. It needs some cleaning too. Wash it every time you do your cloth diapers, and keep two on hand so you can rotate.

If you have any questions, or need help with your wash routine, give us a call at 1-314-892-1855.
