Cloth Diaper Butler Review

When I made our abrupt move to a new home, I took no thought to pack up the diaper sprayer. So I spent a good several weeks doing the good ol’ dunk and swish. And you know what? It wasn’t that bad! But I did find that I had one gadget that really made it more worth my while: The Cloth Diaper Butler.

Let me tell you a little bit about it and then show you how I would fill out the Padded Tush Stats Accessories survey based on how it worked in our home.

Here is a quick video to walk you through the features:

The butler features this wooden rod here (more on that in a second)

Hanging from the rod are two stainless steel chains (brass is also available).

Each chain has a grabber at the end that grabs your diaper.

You can then have the diaper soak in the toilet, but the wooden rod hangs over the toilet to keep the diaper from falling in (yay, no fishing a messy diaper out of the toilet).

I personally used it quite often to soak diapers that were tough to clean with a simple dunk and swish

Another neat thing is you can avoid touching a diaper that has been drenched from a good ol’ dip in the toilet. Simply transfer it to a waterproof pail and unclip.

It also helps give you a better aim when spraying. This could be particularly helpful when you are spraying something larger like a prefold or flat that tends to fold in on itself.

It is also 100% made in the USA with eco-friendly products.

So here is how I would fill out a PTS survey:

Ease of Use: 3/5

Worth the Price: 3/5 (I’d say 4/5 if you can’t afford a sprayer)

Would Recommend to a Friend: 3/5 if you are a sprayer, 5/5 if you prefer to dunk and swish.

In Summary…

I think this is a neat product for those who prefer the dunk and swish method. It costs much less than a diaper sprayer, so you are able to save a little bit by doing this option. I personally think it is AWESOME when it comes to soaking a diaper. This will sound silly, but I like that you SEE that the diaper is soaking because you see the wooden bar hanging over the toilet. TMI Confession: A certain member of the house (ME!) has soaked a diaper without the Cloth Diaper Butler, forgot it was there, and errrrr….used the facilities. So it is also nice for that purpose!

If you’ve tried out this accessory, or any other cloth diaper accessory, please head on over here and fill out a Padded Tush Stats survey. It takes just 2 minutes and helps contribute towards detailed statistical reviews. Thanks!

Price: $12.95

Where to Buy: You can see who carries this accessory by going to Type in “Cloth Diaper Butler” and you can see who carries it and compare things like shipping, location, and even sales going on. It’s the best way to find the best deal on cloth diapers.

Cloth Diaper Butler provided this cover for a sneak peek, but that did not affect any of the opinions in this post.

    I have no idea how these diapers work but… you soak a diaper you put on your baby’s body in the toilet???? Is this correct?

    • says

      Any diaper (cloth or disposable) isn’t supposed to be put in the garbage or diaper pail until the poop has been disposed of in the toilet. With cloth diapers it is common to let the diaper soak in the toilet bowl or a bucket of water so that you can swish the poop off of it before you put it in the diaper pail to wash later. The Cloth Diaper Butler makes it so that you don’t have to put your hand into the toilet to pull the diaper out. So you don’t put the diaper onto your baby after soaking it, you’d put it in the diaper pail or washing machine :) Hope that helps!
