Using cloth diapers as cleaning cloths

For this cloth diaper deep cleaning process, you'll need a sturdy brush and original blue Dawn dish soap. I know Dawn is good for removing grease but it also works very well on diaper stains and removing diaper cream residue. Diaper cream isn't recommended for use with cloth diapers, but sometimes I've had to use it (and have paid the consequences with crusty buildup).

I recommend doing this process for deep cleaning cloth diapers at least once a year. It does require a time investment, especially if you have a lot of cloth diapers to clean, but the results I achieved significantly impacted the lifespan of my cloth diapers. I'll definitely do this again to create a clean slate when passing on diapers to our next child.
