Two things I failed to mention...you cannot use any ol' detergent. It has to be safe for cloth diapers, regular laundry detergents contain ingredients that will cause build up on your diapers and will eventually repel moisture and cause leakage. So, look for detergent that is cloth diaper friendly. The same is true of most diaper creams. Check to be sure it's safe for the diapers.
I am currently selling cloth diaper detergent, and I am working on a new diaper cream. Hopefully I'll have the cream available in a couple of weeks. I'll let ya know!
