How i wash cloth diapers using the Laundry Pod

     When I first started cloth diapering i started feeling overwhelmed by having to wash all these cloths by hand! At first I didn't mind but after the 3rd or 4th month of having to wash them weekly I started feeling the strain in my hands. One day i was browsing pintrest when i came across a pin showing the Laundry Pod and it read "Portable washing machine for small spaces". I eagerly opened the page and i was excited about this Laundry Pod. For weeks i obsessed on it. I looked at pictures and watched videos all over the web. A month later i was able to save money to buy it. The original price was for $100 plus shipping but i was able to find it on Ebay for $80 with shipping included. 
     
     So when you look at the Laundry Pod it resembles a giant salad spinner. It has a little handle on top that is used to spin your clothes. Many videos can be found on Youtube on how it works. 

     I created this video with pictures and text on how I use my Laundry Pod to wash my cloth diapers and other baby items. Enjoy!

How to strip cloth diapers

When should I strip my cloth diapers? Strip your cloth diapers if your child is suddenly getting a diaper rash. Strip your cloth diapers when they start smelling like ammonia.

Why should I strip my cloth diapers? It is important to strip your cloth diapers to remove detergent residue. Detergent residue build up houses bacteria and causes diaper rashes. 

Stripping steps

Wash your diapers normally using. Either by hand or by machine

Fill your pot with water, 1 teaspoon of dawn soap and 1 tablespoon of vinegar

Bring to a boil and add cloth

Using tongs swirl the cloths around. Let them boil for 5-10 minutes

Dump them in sink and re-wash them the way you normally would only this time DO NOT USE ANY SOAP

Line, sun, or machine dry them and enjoy the smell :)!


Here is the my video with step to step pictures and text. Enjoy :)
