This time, we have put together a summary of how to prepare for admission to a nursery school designated for cloth diapers.
Cloth diapers that can be washed and used over and over againCloth diapers that can be washed and used repeatedly.
Some people choose cloth diapers instead of paper diapers because of the benefits of reducing the cost of diapers and making potty training go more smoothly.
However, in Japan, the majority of people currently use cloth diapers, and those who have never used cloth diapers may have a negative impression of cloth diapers as ``time-consuming and troublesome.'' yeah.
The nursery school specified cloth diapers!If you have never used cloth diapers and send your child to a daycare center that uses cloth diapers, won't it be more troublesome and burdensome to do laundry? I can understand your feelings of wanting to avoid using cloth diapers, and your concerns about using cloth diapers for childcare.
Some nursery schools that specify cloth diapers have contracts with companies that rent cloth diapers.
This is a system in which the nursery school collects money from each family for the number of sheets used each month and pays it to the vendor in bulk.
In this case, you will be asked to do the laundry, but you will be charged a fee.
Although it doesn't cost a lot of money, it's important to check in advance as there are differences in costs and effort depending on the daycare center, such as a daycare center where you have to do everything from preparing cloth diapers to doing laundry.
Among these, we have compiled a list of frequently asked questions regarding preparations for entering a nursery school where children will need to prepare and wash their own cloth diapers.
If the nursery school specifies cloth diapers, what and how much should I prepare?
Prepare the number of cloth diapers specified by the nursery school + diapers for washing.Most nursery schools will ask you to prepare the specified number of cloth diapers.
Prepare the specified number of sheets + one for washing.
For example, if you need 20 cloth diapers every day, it's safe to have at least 40 cloth diapers, including those for washing, or 60 if your home doesn't have a dryer.
In the case of diaper covers, if the specified number of diaper covers each day is 3, the minimum number of diaper covers for washing is ``3 diaper covers x 2 = 6''.
Many manufacturers do not allow diaper covers to be dried in the dryer because the waterproof function will peel off, but considering the time and effort it takes to dry them after washing, it is better to have more diaper covers.

Things to prepare・Rinenna#1
・Bucket for soaking *An omniutti bucket with a lid is recommended.
Make cloth diaper soaking liquidPut 2 tablespoons of Rinenna and 4 liters of hot water at about 40℃ into a bucket.
Adjust the amount of detergent and hot water in the soaking solution you prepare depending on the amount of cloth diapers you are soaking.
If the concentration is low or the water level is low and the cloth diaper protrudes above the water surface, bacteria and mold will grow there.
Make sure the cloth diaper is completely soaked in the soaking solution.
Put a dirty cloth diaper in it and leave it overnight.Flush solid poop down the toilet.
If your baby has loose poop from a younger baby, either flush the poop gently in the toilet or shower, or wipe it with paper towels before placing it in a bucket.
Rinenna does not require massaging.
Put the cloth diapers in the washing machine along with the bucket of water and give it a spin.First, use the washing machine's dehydration function to spin the clothes for 3 to 4 minutes, then wash them as usual using the wash button.
Since the diaper is not massaged, poop residue often remains on the diaper during the soaking stage, but dehydration removes the poop residue.
Rinenna also has the role of cleaning the washing tub, so if you add Rinenna to your washing machine like you would regular detergent, the washing tub will gradually become cleaner.

Washing cloth diapers is easy with Rinenna!Even if you weren't aiming for a daycare center that designated cloth diapers, don't worry if you have no choice but to do so.
All you have to do is soak the diapers before your regular laundry, so even those using cloth diapers for the first time can easily wash them.

Another benefit is that you can wash the clothes without touching them, minimizing the risk of infection from the baby to the mother.
Also, as toilet training progresses smoothly, the number of clothes you need to wash will gradually decrease.
When it's time for full-fledged potty training, we often hear from people who say, ``I'm glad I used cloth diapers after all.''
