We are frequently asked, “What kind of laundry detergent should I use on my cloth diapers?” Answer: You have lots of options, and we want you to find a solution that you feel good about.
Find what works for your family
First, what kind of detergent are you currently using? Do you use it on your baby’s clothes? How’s that going for you? If you and your baby are happy and your clothes are clean, try that detergent on your cloth diapers. Seriously, use what works for you and your family!
If you’re not happy and you need some pointers, feel free to call our Customer Service team at 888.332.2243. They are great at helping you find a wash routine that works!
Options for sensitive skin
If you or your baby have sensitive skin, you have some options. We recommend giving either a free & clear detergent or bumGenius Liquid Laundry Detergent a try. We’ve partnered with Better Life to create bumGenius Liquid Laundry Detergent. This all-natural laundry detergent is excellent for washing cloth diapers, but also safe to use on all your laundry.
A natural laundry solution
Our professionally-formulated detergent uses all-natural, non-toxic, plant based and biodegradable ingredients. It’s ultra-gentle, free of dyes, optical brighteners, fragrances, sulfates and phosphates – Perfect for those in need of a hypoallergenic laundry solution.
bumGenius Natural Laundry Detergent is a product we proudly stand behind. Some detergents contain ingredients such as perfumes, dyes, optical brighteners and fabric softeners that may leave residue on fabrics, and in our experience, this residue can be problematic – not only for cloth diapers, but for children with sensitivities too!
Fear not! We’ve created bumGenius Natural Laundry Detergent in order to provide you with an option you can feel good about using – not only on your cloth diapers, but on your entire family’s laundry! It will get everything clean, while keeping your clothes and sensitive skin safe.
