How to store cloth diapers that will keep you organized

How do you store diapers once you have potty trained?

Cleaning your diapers

The first thing you will want to do is wash them in warm water a few times to get all the detergent residue off. This will also avoid having the elastics and fibers being eaten away during the storage time. Once you know the diapers are free from detergent you can then dry them. I recommend using the dryer for this one time to ensure they are completely dry. This will prevent mold. If you prefer to hang dry make sure to leave them outside on a hot sunny day so they can completely dry.

What do I store them in?

Once you have completely washed and dry your cloth diapers you will be ready to store them away. I'd recommend using Rubbermaid type containers they offer dry storage. It will also protect them against dust, bugs and if you have an unforeseen accident due to a broken pipe.

The next thing you'll want to do is put them in a climate controlled area of your home. I'd avoid your shed, attic, and even your garage.
