Ways To Reuse Cloth Diapers

Posted 07-1-2014 at 09:24 AM by Matrivine


You have your last child potty training now and it’s time to get rid of those cloth diapers. Don’t just throw them out! That would defeat the purpose of those eco friendly diapers. Besides they can have so many other uses.

Pass Them On
If you know you are done having children and now all your children are potty trained perhaps it’s time to pass those diapers on to someone who will need them. Perhaps you know an expecting mother or someone who is being eaten alive trying to keep up with the cost of disposable diapers. Or perhaps you have noticed your little one has a friend with sensitive skin and could use cloth diapers. Whoever you choose to pass those clothies on to it will help save them a great deal of money.

Sell Them
That’s what our For Sale or Trade Forum is for! Sell your cloth diapers and other child rearing supplies. You’ll make some money and the buyer gets a great deal buying used. It’s a win-win for everyone involved!

The Covers As Training Pants
Cloth diaper covers make great training pants when it comes time to potty train your little one. Without the inserts they don’t absorb as much moisture so your child will get used to the idea of using the potty. It’s great for those children who don’t yet want to transition into underwear but are ready to move on to potty training. They can keep the familiar look of the diaper and eventually move on to underpants. This can also help save money during the transition between diapers and toilet training.

A Cleaning Supply
Let’s face it. Your diaper inserts have seen the worst messes known to motherhood and yet we can get them clean enough to put them back on our children. After that last cleaning why not use them to clean up household messes. They are made to be absorbent and are great for cleaning up spills. These are particularly great for cleaning the bathroom. Let them transition into the bathroom with your child. Just let them have a different purpose.

    great ideas! my youngest is potty trained and I have 2 overflowing laundry baskets of diapers to list. Some I just can’t part with yet but the thought of listing them for sale is such a daunting task!

    Yep, we also used covers as trainers with some heavy duty panties for our little girl and it worked great for naps!
