If you frequent my blog, you know that we love cloth diapering, you can even check out some of the past reviews I’ve done on cloth diapers. Cloth diapers are one thing, but have you ever wondered how you clean them? Before I started cloth diapering this is probably one of the things that kept me from doing so, and why we used a service with our first child. But along came baby #2 and our friends who owned the cloth diaper service closed their doors, so I dove into washing my own cloth diapers.
Almost a year ago I wrote a post about must-have cloth diaper products. Well – I have a new one. You see at that time we really hadn’t had to deal with difficult poop because thanks to my son’s FPIES he didn’t start actually eating food regularly until he turned 2 years old. Then came the poop – and the struggle with how to clean it. Thankfully, there are genius people out there that have already done a lot of the hard work for me. They invented Spray Pal!
About the Spray Pal
So if you are wondering how you should handle cleaning your cloth diapers, you might want to check out “The WHAT DO I DO WITH THE POOP? Bundle.” I was super excited to have the opportunity to do a Spray Pal review because I’d heard SO many amazing things about this product I had to check it out for myself! So what makes the Spray Pal so special? The Spray Pal fits right onto your toilet and it doesn’t require a plumber (trust me – I installed my own Spray Pal – not my husband – me!) or any special tools. You simply clip the dirty diaper and hold it over the toilet, from there you add water pressure and spray the poop off the cloth diaper.
My Spray Pal Review:
It does take a little bit to get used to placing the cloth diaper on the clip and then spraying to get the poop off, but once you get the hang of it, it’s super easy. Since my son is getting older and finally eating real food, this is a must have for those solid poops. We actually ventured into the “potty training” territory shortly after I got my Spray Pal. But guess what? It’s great for that too. Trust me, accidents will happen even in underwear, so it’s nice to have something to help clean up the mess.
I think when you have something like the Spray Pal, it makes cloth diapering easier. It’s easy to be afraid of a huge mess. Now using cloth diapers is one step easier. If any of my friends are curious about how the “cleanup” process of cloth diapering works, I just invite them over and introduce them to the Spray Pal. I’ve definitely won over a few cloth diapering skeptics this way. (Yep – you read that right. I have actually shared the poop spraying processes with my friends!! What can I say – once you become a parent, you just kinda get used to ALL.THE.POOP.)
Don’t worry – I know you aren’t in my bathroom – no poop on this diaper – just a “to get the general idea” image.
I could go on and on about the Spray Pal all day, but I’ve got cloth diapers and some training pants to clean. If you’re interested in owning the Spray Pal, you can purchase it here. Here’s what you get when you order the Spray Pal bundle:
- Spray wand holder with clip
- 25” stainless steel spray hose with EPDM braided inner hose
- Solid brass T-connector
- Brass ceramic shut-off valve, allows for adjustable water flow
- Spray wand with adjustable lever
- *Toilet must have a flexible supply line
What if you already have a sprayer, you can purchase the Spray Pal splatter shield separately too. I hope you enjoy the Spray Pal as much as I have and I also hope it makes your cloth diapering experience that much more pleasant – or at least a little less messy!
