    Diaper Pail and Detergent

    Hi all,
    Informative thread, thanks.
    Any luck finding special cloth-diaper detergent in HK? Also, a diaper pail?

    The Bumps to Babes outlet in Ap Lei Chau sell special detergent and many types of diaper pails. Not sure if the detergent is specifically for cloth diapers, but I've been using it to wash baby's clothes and cloth diapers (flats) and it seems to work okay.

    I bought washable diaper pail liners by Planet Wise on amazon and I plan to use it with a regular step trash can like Simple Human. You can wash the liner along with each load of diapers. Saves on cost and less plastic waste!

    Would you mind sharing with us which nappy liners you use?

    I found a Tippytoes diaper pail at Bumps2Babes in Ap Lei Chau. It's white in colour (that's the only colour they had in stock at the time) and comes with a lid which I hope will minimise smells!

    I'll be washing BumGenius and FuzziBunz...

    Thanks!
    Here's a link to the care instructions on the FuzziBunz website: https://www.fuzzibunzstore.com/stati..._for_fuzzibunz

    The two brands of detergent that they recommend, 7th Generation and ECOVER, are both available in ThreeSixty in the Landmark.

I chose them for the price (around $750 for about 6 diapers and inserts) plus they have a disposable system option (disposable inserts instead of cloth inserts) and they say to wash them in cold water or water less than 40 C. We only have cold water at home and some cloth diaper brands recommend warm to hot water. I figured out that we'd pay for them in around 2-3 months by using them in place of disposables.
    Ozmerc, it's encouraging to hear that you're happy with the CB diapers. I also bought the one-size diapers. Are you using cloth diapers exclusively? How many CB diapers do you go through a day for a newborn?

    As I've said, I've not yet had a chance to try mine out yet because the baby has yet to arrive. However, I've already run them through the cold water wash and have found that the diaper shells dry very quickly on the washing line. The liners take a little longer to dry. Do you use a dryer or line dry?

    I just read up on the fuzzibunz vs Charlie Banana drama. FB owner has made a huge retraction and vehemently denies CB stole their product. They had a parting of ways but it seems it was a business dispute, not intellectual theft. Quite easy to find the information if you google it. Now I know why I was able to buy so many hugely discounted fuzzibunz last year! I have to say I personally have worked with Gaelle as a product tester when she was with fuzzinbbunz and she absolutely backed the product up when there were issues. I am sure that her customer service would be even better with her own brand, though I have not ey had the chance to use CB diapers.
