To soak my cloth nappies I add about 5 drops of T.Tree oil to the soak bucket (I have a toddler and newborn in cloth naps and this is enough for both sets of nappies – could use less for just one set of naps). This saves on more expensive nappy soakers, is natural, and a bottle that costs under $15 will last me a year. I also have made my own nappy liners, instead of buying the chux cloth like supermarket liners. Just buy a metre of microfleece and cut to size. I got 16 double folded liners out of a metre piece and have used these now for over 2 years and they are still in great condition. Waste falls off easily into toilet and anything left comes off with a quick scrub.
