Hi ladies! I just got my first order of used diapers in the mail today and I'm looking for some advice on getting them ready to put on my kiddos. They are Kawaii blue label minky bamboo pocket diapers, with bamboo inserts. What should I wash them in? How should I wash them? I know bleach is bad for PUL, but I just want to make sure they're clean since they're used. Thanks!

Bleach isn't actually bad for pul. It will fade natural fibers though. I have used bleach in every load for 7 yrs and not a single issue other than some faded wipes and dyed pf's. Just mix it in the water before adding the diapers. I now strip ALL used I get because of an unmentioned ammonia issue with some dipes i got. I washed as usual with extra bleach on sanitary and must have trrown up 15X trying to get the dipe off the kid! I have a laundry thread if you wanna search my posts. If not, I can link you to it. It gives you the ups and downs of successfull diapering while getting to a simple routine. Please, don't buy into the crazy hype the manufacturers toss out there.They create those detergent's detergent fact sheets, warrenties, all ends in them with more money and you with ammonia or detergent buildup. LMK if you need the link.

Oh, and welcome sweetie!

Oh great! You did stop in to say hi! I LOVE Kawaii diapers. I actually live close to the lady that owns the company. They are made in China but she lives in Canada...
ANYWAY - I second a splash of bleach or oxiclean (oxi bleach WILL NOT harm diapers) for new used ones then rinse, rinse, rinse, rinse to strip them of any suds so you are left with clean and ready to roll diapers. Same with the inserts. I am a 100% pocket girl so if you have any other questions or just want to pop in and say hi - stick around

Happy Birth Day, Mom1mg!

I am an all-pockets Mama, too. When I was pregnant, I bought 24 Sunbaby diapers. When I was pregnant again, I bought 24 more. I have like, two Fuzzi Bunz that were a gift. I figure, they worked, and I'm cheap. If it ain't broke, know what I mean?

I am completely in love with Kawaii too! I bought two of the heavy wetters last year as the second type of diaper I tried, and they are my favorite! I was super excited to find 3 EUC bamboo minky diapers on here so that I could add to my stash. I also prefer pockets, except at stuffing time, lol.

Also, so glad to hear the allergy thing worked out for you. I'm pretty much allergic to everything, including a few foods, and it totally sucks. I wouldn't wish that on anyone, lol.

Thanks for the warm welcome ladies, I'm definitely sticking around, it takes a lot more than some silly drama to scare me off

Wow - new mamas WELCOME!

Sometimes this thread turns into one of us talking to ourself - lol. We've had many, many sweet mamas come and go from our little corner of DS. I hope you both stay and chat a while! Sarah and I have been here for a few months, Justina is a little newer and it seems like we lost Kris --- KRIS WHERE ARE YOU???

Thanks for all the birth - day wishes. Sarah it was DS's bday not mine but he's my oldest so his tenth birthday is also ten years of being a mom for me. (LOL I just realized how obvious that statement is BUT in my defence I am just getting over the flu and it's the middle of the night and I can't sleep)

So it is our Thanksgiving this weekend and I am going to make the 2nd turkey I've ever made. The first one was 12 years ago! I've tried a few times but either my mil or mom is around and they take over and chase me out of the kitchen. I really can't cook (!!) but I'm never going to learn without being given a chance either. I think when DH is done at school in March I am going to find some cooking classes - either then or maybe next fall. He is a great dad but the house kind-of falls apart when I am gone. Our youngest will be almost a year then though so hopefully he can keep it together for a few hours once a week. Right now if I go out I KNOW I am going to be walking back in to a disaster. I guess I need to talk to him about that actually it's just not worth the fight when I know it isn't on purpose he just can't keep up and at least they are safe - if filthy. I just never leave - lol 5 kids and 4 pets and 20 farm animals is REALLY a two person job.
