You've done a great thing by using cloth diapers on your little one, saving the environment from a mountain of trash that takes over 500 years to biodegrade! However, now that she is potty trained, you have that large stack of cloth diapers just gathering dust in your closet. There are many clever ways to reuse cloth diapers, some that you may never have even considered. Start by laundering and sterilizing the cloth diapers, then read on for our 10 favorite ways to give new life to those old cloth diapers.
#1: Sell Them!
Just because those old cloth diapers are used, doesn’t mean they are worthless. After all, those services that pick up and deliver fresh diapers to your home have to sanitize those diapers too. You can sell them through a number of online ventures – and you can use the money towards the items that your child needs now.
#2: Donate Them!
Don’t feel like selling those old cloth diapers? That’s alright, there are a lot of people who could definitely use them. You can donate them to your local thrift store, women’s community center or a not for profit child care center that uses reusable nappies.
#3: Stuff Them!
Have a dog bed that could use a little more stuffing? Add those extra cloth diapers and give your pooch a super comfy bed. The best part, the cloth diapers can be easily removed and laundered whenever the doggie bed needs freshening up!
