Diaper Tips Tuesday: Flushable Liners

Diaper liners can be a time saver for many families as it helps make cleanup of BMs easier and also allows for the use of diaper creams and ointments as they help create a barrier from buildup (liners allow liquid to pass through so it’s not 100% buildup protection, but definitely helps keep build up to a minimum). Diaper liners come in both disposable and reusable forms, but today’s tip is for disposable liners.

Remember that when using flushable liners you should only flush the soiled liners (you are responsible for knowing your own septic system) and they recommend that wet liners are put in the regular trash. Refer to the manufacturer’s recommendations as different liners may vary, but I have had success with the brands mentioned below.

Tip: Here’s a tip if you use disposable diaper liners like Bummis Bio-soft Liners, Imse Vimse Flushable Liners or Bambino Mio Mio Nappy Liners. Instead of throwing the wet liners in the trash, throw them in your diaper pail/bag and run them through the washer and dryer/clothesline to get another use out of them! I don’t recommend doing it more than once, because they are biodegradable and you don’t want them to get used to the point that they start breaking down and then you’ll have a mess in your laundry. Great for a second use though!!

  1. Are you starting a weekly meme? I'd LOVE to play!!!

  2. I don't like liners. They always seem to bunch up. I tried them since my sprayer isn't working but scraping worked better.
