Re: What makes diaper rash ointment NOT safe for cloth. What about powders?

Pure lanolin is CD safe. I use it instead of DR creams and it heals in 24 hours. It washes out easily in hot water.

ERA: veggie based ouls are ok and washout easily in hot water.
That is so confusing! I thought lanolin was used to make wool waterproof? And I thought I knew a fair amount about cloth. Always something new to learn!


SAHM for my little girlies!

I hateeeeee cjs (although it smells great!). I just use a&d with a flushable liner and any rash we have had has cleared up by the next diaper change.
