There are a variety of reasons families choose to use cloth diapers versus disposables. It’s better for the environment, costs less money over the long run, gentler on baby’s skin, exposes our families to less chemicals and plastics. However, most families get these benefits by sacrificing time and effort. It’s true that without a great system cloth diapers can be a lot of work! It can be much more difficult than just wrapping up a dirty diaper and tossing them in the bin! (unless you just moved to a small island where you personally have to haul all your trash to the recycling depot..). Part of an efficient and easy cloth diaper experience is a quality diaper sprayer. I have cloth diapered with and without one and it’s easier and less messy when you have one. It also makes laundry day less smelly.. A diaper sprayer can also be used to clean your bath tub, water your plants, and as a bidet for all the Family Cloth friends out there. A multi use tool that families will use many times each day. We tested out the SmarterFresh Cloth Diaper Sprayer and loved it !
What's To Love?:

- can be used for diapers or as a bidet
- all stainless steel (no plastics)
- fits on any flush toilet
What’s Not To Love
- isn’t compatible with composting toilets
Switching to cloth diapers is a huge benefit for your babies health when you look at the ingredient list of many standard disposable diapers. Including but not limited to polyethylene film, polypropylene plastic, bleached paper pulp, petrolatum, stearyl alcohol, glue, elastic, cellulose tissue and perfume. These also are not necessary to mention on labels.. !
This can lead to serious rashes and absorption of toxicity. There is also evidence of disposable diapers releasing VOCs and polluting your nurseries indoor air.
Bleached toilet paper and diapers make look white and clean, but they contain trace amounts of dioxin, and have surely contributed to larger volumes of dioxin being release into the waterways near the plants and factories where they are manufactured.
Throw-away diapers and toilet paper decrease health in our bodies, homes, and the environment. Getting a sprayer is a step towards reducing or eliminating our need for disposables.
SmarterFresh access way ahead of competitors in the design department. Smart, Sleek, Strong… the SmarterFresh Sprayer is made entirely of stainless steel, leaving breakable toxic plastics out of the equation and upping style points at the same time. The sturdy design mean that you can use the sprayer again and again without fear of a break or breach. We especially love the 3-way valve and pressure control handle which means that you can have a gentle trickle (if you are using it bidet style) or a strong stream if you are getting major gunk out of a dirty diaper.
It’s also very easy to attach to your existing toilet, and you don’t need experience or special tools. It only took me 10 mins to get it up and running.
Getting a diaper sprayer and switching to cloth is a great solution for cutting down diaper waste and toilet paper usage in your home. 9.1 million trees are cut down per year on average to create toilet paper! And many disposable diapering families can attest to how their garbage volume quickly doubles when dirty diapers are added. Reduce your waste now with one easy adjustment!
However, they still use (and potential waste) fresh water. If you have already adjusted your lifestyle to include a water free composting toilet you cannot use this diaper sprayer. You might want to consider using a Smarter Fresh Warm Water Bidet that connects to your bathroom faucet.
$38.99 is a nominal price for such an indispensable and multi-use bathroom tool, that will save you money in the long run. It’s estimated that families in the USA collectively spend over 6 Billion dollars a year on toilet paper! By investing in a sprayer you can drastically cut your families diaper and toilet paper costs. SmarterFresh also gives a full 1-year warranty incase you experience an issue and need your money back.
