Flushable Diaper Liners ... making clean-up a breeze.
Flushable Diaper Liners make cloth diapering clean-ups a breeze to handle. They also aid in preventing stains on your cloth diapers, decrease the chance of detergent build-up or cream residue (reduces odor retention!), and provides a light barrier between your baby and wetness. A real time-saver!
These cloth diaper liners can be use as flushable diaper liners or disposable diaper liners, depending on your water system. If you are on a septic system, or have old or damaged plumbing, it is highly recommended that you simply dispose of these liners in the trash, rather than flush them down your toilet. This is our personal recommendation with ALL biodegradable, flushable (disposable) cloth diaper liners, although these are labeled as septic-safe on new systems. Disposing of these liners in the trash still makes cleaning up just as simple and easy!
How to use Biodegradable Flushable Liners:
Simple! Place the bio-liner on top of any cloth diaper against your baby.
When diaper is soiled, remove liner and put into toilet.
Allow liner to absorb water and become softer for easier flushing. Only flush one liner at a time!
If on a sensitive septic system, remove liner and dump solids down toilet. Dispose of liner in the trash.
Wet liner only? Rinse, hang to dry, and reuse a second or third time.
Our biodegradable, flushable diaper liners are constructed from plant cellulose (soft wood pulp) and are whitened using Hydrogen Peroxide rather than chlorine bleach. Providing a layer between your baby's bottom and a cloth diaper, these disposable liners protect your cloth diapers from staining, as well as protecting your baby's behind. They allow wetness to pass through them, onto the cloth diaper, but not back again. This helps keep your baby feeling dryer had no liner been used at all. They are designed to retain solids, making clean up easier. So durable, these cloth diaper liners are can be washed (if only wet) and re-used more than once. Soft plant fibers are less scratchy than other paper liners available on the market. A great choice for parents that want less mess!
Our Biodegradable Flushable Diaper Liners come in an average roll of 100 perforated sheets/changes per roll. Constructed of 100% Viscose, the size small measures approximately 5" x 11.5" per sheet and are recommended for newborns or with prefolds or fitted diapers. We recommend the size large liners for pocket diapers to minimize shifting and bunching on the fleece fabric. If you are on a septic, or would like a STAY-DRY, economical option for your baby, check out our reusable, washable microfleece cloth diaper liners. The perfect choice to keep your little one feeling dry all night long!
Caution: Flushing of liners in old or damaged drains and in sensitive septic tanks may cause blockage. These and any other "flushable biodegradable" liners are only recommended for use in city systems. If you are on a septic system, please use with caution.
Cloth Diaper Liners for Septic Systems
Christopher from Barrie, Ontario (Canada) asks us...
Q: My family is on a septic system. What are my alternatives?
A: Just as you should not flush tissues or paper towels when you have a septic system, flushing biodegradable cloth diaper liners is not recommended. These flushable diaper liners are labeled as safe for new septic systems, however, we would still suggest using caution, if you choose to flush them. You should only flush one liner in the toilet at a time. Additionally, we recommended that you let the liner sit in the water for a few minutes before flushing it so that the pulp absorbs water and becomes softer and easier to flush.
Alternatively, you can also use these liners as disposable liners, and once the solids are dumped into the toilet, toss the paper liner into a waste receptacle instead. This will still help save time and make cleaning up after baby easier and less messy.
For parents that want to save more money, or are concerned about the waste left behind, cloth diaper liners that can be re-used and washed in the washing machine along side cloth diapers are an excellent alternative.
