In the interest of keeping cloth diapering simple, it seems that extra accessories would just complicate matters. In some cases, it's true. It's not necessary for every cloth-diapering family to own every since available accessory. There are some accessories, however, that I absolutely recommend, and a wetbag is one of them.
What is a wetbag? It's a waterproof bag that you can toss any wet or soiled diapers and clothing.
When you are going out with cloth diapers, a wetbag is great for keeping the rest of your diaper bag dry and odor-free. Unlike the many diaper options, wetbags are fairly straightforward. Most close with a zipper or pull-string. I prefer wetbags with zippers. Mommy's Touch makes a great no-frills wetbag. For lots of fun prints, try Wahmies. Pull string wetbags from Natural Baby Company are a great inexpensive option.
When laundering, I simply toss the wetbag in with my diapers. I've never had a problem throwing them in the dryer either, but follow the washing instructions on your wetbag, as it may advise you not to.
I love using a wetbag with my cloth diapers, but wetbags are also great for families that don't cloth-diaper or don't have children in diapers. They make great bags for the beach or pool. Storing a wet bathing suit is so simple with a wetbag.
Such a versatile accessory is a must have! Between now and March 31st, save 10% (or more) on all wetbags and pail liners.
