Here's what I used:
- Lavender-scented castile soap (from Trader Joe's)
- Lansolin lanolin (bought at babies-r-us)
- 1 cup hot water
Yah. That easy! I heated 1 cup water in the microwave until hot. Dissolved a pea-sized amount of lanolin in the water, then added several drops of castile soap. Mixed it all up, added to a few inches of cool water in a plastic bucket and swished it all around. Put diaper in, allow to soak for at least 15 minutes. Drain water and gently squeeze diaper. Repeat soaking with only cool water. Drain and gently squeeze diaper.
Tada! A clean and lanolized diaper…on the cheap!
