What about the poop…?
One of the biggest obstacles for parents is the poop, and we're very sympathetic to your plight! A strictly breastfed or formula-fed baby's poop is water soluble and does not need to be rinsed off prior to washing. Simply throw the soiled diaper in your AppleCheeks Storage Sac and your pre-rinse (see our downloadable washing instructions) will wash the poop away. Some mild staining might occur. If this happens and it bothers you, please see our recommendations for getting rid of stains.
Once your baby is on solid foods, the poop does need to be disposed of prior to washing. If it does not bother you, you can shake the solid bits off in the toilet and dunk and swish to get the rest off, and then pop the soiled diaper into your AppleCheeks Storage Sac. If it does bother you, a few companies offer a flushable diaper liner which catches the poop and can then be dumped directly into the toilet and flushed away. This is a life-saver for a lot of parents! If you would like to know where to buy such products, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
