This Grandma Loves Grandma Els
Posted by Janice Bogott on April 10, 2014.
I cloth-diapered my three daughters back in the 70s and 80s. Back then, there weren't nearly as many choices for diapers! My babies wore cotton flats or prefolds secured with colorful diaper pins and covered by clear plastic pull-ons. To prevent diaper rash, I used petroleum jelly at almost every diaper change. I washed them on hot with a lot of bleach. I never recall having any problems with build-up.
Nowadays, I co-own Over the Moon Diapers with my middle daughter and it's fun to see the innovations in cloth diapers that have taken place since my children were in diapers. The one downside to modern stay-dry cloth diapers is the tendency of some diaper rash ointments to cling so tightly to the fibers that it's difficult to rinse them out completely, which prevents the diaper from absorbing properly.
To keep your cloth diapers functioning properly, it's important to avoid using overly greasy or heavy diaper rash ointments without a liner in between baby's bottom and the cloth diaper. However, Grandma El's Diaper Rash Remedy & Prevention isn't overly heavy, so you can use it without a liner (provided the water in your washing machine is hot - we recommend about 130 degrees).
