What Is A Diaper Sprayer Good For
Cloth Diaper Kids Blog
by Stephanie Planchak
6d ago
A diaper sprayer is an optional cloth diapering accessory that many families find helpful.  If you haven't had one before, they are a simple spray nozzle and hose setup that attaches to the water line of your toilet allowing you to spray fresh water with an adjustable flow head.  You don't need any tools to install them and they are easy to add to any bathroom toilet.  Generally a diaper sprayer is used to spray poop off of the diaper so it can be flushed away and then the diaper is ready to wait in a wet bag for wash day. But besides serving as a way of deal ..read more

In case you haven't noticed, we carry a lot of Kanga Care products... I carry their bamboo prefolds and flats, the EcoPosh fitteds, Lil Joey Newborns, Lil Learnerz Training Pants, and of course the full line of infamous Rumparooz pocket diapers and covers.  But beyond their products, we've continued to carry Kanga Care for many years because of who they are as a company.  Let me tell you more about them.

New parents shouldn't have to explain their parenting choices to nosy friends and family, but they always seem to have an opinion if you say you're using cloth diapers for your baby.

What Makes The Outside Of A Cloth Diaper Waterproof
Cloth Diaper Kids Blog
by Stephanie Planchak

What makes the outside of a cloth diaper waterproof? GOOD QUESTION. The outer material of a diaper cover, pocket diaper, all-in-two or all-in-one diaper is made from PUL or TPU. Most brands today use TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) which is a thin film of polyurethane laminated onto a polyester base fabric. TPU uses high heat to bond the film to the base fabric.  Older style PUL (polyurethane laminate) used heat, pressure and other chemical solvents to bond the film to the fabric.

It's that time again and Earth Day, April 22, is around the corner.  Why is Earth Day important?  It's a time of year when we can all reflect on our choices and evaluate what we can do to help leave Mother Earth better for future generations while improving our own quality of life too.  While I don't think paper straws are the solution, I do think high quality reusable items, fixing things that break and moving towards slow fashion solutions could reduce lots of needless waste in our communities. Getting a handle on countries with large manufacturing industries and few envi ..read more
