#1: Sell Them!

Just because those old cloth diapers are used, doesn’t mean they are worthless. After all, those services that pick up and deliver fresh diapers to your home have to sanitize those diapers too. You can sell them through a number of online ventures – and you can use the money towards the items that your child needs now.

#2: Donate Them!

Don’t feel like selling those old cloth diapers? That’s alright, there are a lot of people who could definitely use them. You can donate them to your local thrift store, women’s community center or a not for profit child care center that uses reusable nappies.

#3: Stuff Them!

Have a dog bed that could use a little more stuffing? Add those extra cloth diapers and give your pooch a super comfy bed. The best part, the cloth diapers can be easily removed and laundered whenever the doggie bed needs freshening up!

#4: Clean with Them!

Whenever I dust, I always choose a thick hand towel because the oil will soak through a regular dust cloth. Old cloth diapers are perfect for dusting because they are thick and when they get stained by oil, you don’t have to feel bad about tossing them after several uses if you have to.

#5: Mop with Them!

I love the idea of a Swiffer mop – but I hate the waste. Turn those old cloth diapers into your own reusable Swiffer mop cloths. Then, when you are finished cleaning the floors, toss them in the wash to be used again and again.

#6: Play with Them!

Have a little who loves dolls? Turn those old cloth diapers into miniature clothing and housewares for her friends. If you have colorful diapers they would be perfect for clothes and pillows. Regular old while cloth diapers would be ideal for pillow inserts, and undergarments for the dollies.

#7: Wash Spot with Them!

If you have a dog, you know how often they can get dirty. The worst part is trying to dry the dog with one of your towels – ugh, wet dog smell. Those old cloth diapers are perfect for drying Spike because they are super absorbent and easy to handle.

#8: Personal Care with Them!

If you use disposable pantyliners, you can transform those old cloth diapers into reusable ones. Again, since they are very absorbent they are perfect for your monthly guest.

Getting ready to make a move to a new home? Those old cloth diapers are perfect for wrapping your collectibles and breakables. You can also pad the boxes with them, they are thick and will help protect your valuables.

#10: Use Them in the Garage!

If your husband is like mine – making a mess in the garage is part of his job. Toss those old cloth diapers in a bucket for your hubby to use when he spills oils, paint or other sticky mess in the garage. They are also great for cleaning your hands after working on the car or greasing the bicycle tires.
