What To Do When You’re Finished With Cloth Diapers
Give them to friends or family
Do you know anyone willing to tackle cloth diapers? Consider giving your unused cloth diapers to friends or family. Just make sure to tell them you want them back if they end up not using them! That would be a waste!
If your diapers have PUL in them, then you can use that to make cloth nursing pads, menstrual pads, and snack bags. If the PUL has cracks in it, you can use them as swim diapers still! Prefolds can be used as rags or burp cloths, or cut them up for the absorbent part in the nursing or menstrual pads!
Donate to a cloth diaper loan program
There are several programs that send out cloth diaper loans to low-income families. They are always in need of gently-used cloth diapers and accessories! The Rebecca Foundation’s Cloth Diaper Closet is a great one to donate to because they aren’t picky about what you send. You can even send t-shirts and sheets with the diapers and they will use them! Check out their list of what is accepted here.
Give away free-for-shipping
If you don’t know of anyone who would use your cloth diapers, but still want to give them to a family, you can always post them in the free-for-shipping section at Diaper Swappers. They just pay you the costs of shipping the diapers to them.
Keep them for an unexpected pregnancy
Hey, it happens. And you know you’ll be kicking yourself in the butt if you got rid of those diapers because you thought you were done with kids!
