We’ve been cloth diapering our son from birth and it’s been really lovely! 100% easier than we expected and we’ve saved buckets of cash. Of course there is poop involved, just like with disposables. Whether you decide to do cloth or disposables, there’s still poop. You can’t escape it! And to be perfectly honest it’s not that big of a deal in the beginning. Our son ate both breast milk and formula and the smell was never a big deal.

But a strange things happens around the six month mark. You start adding food to your baby’s diet and that food starts to come out, sometimes not fully digested. Our son feeds himself chunks of food and has since he was 6.5 months. This is referred to as Baby Led Weaning. This poop needs to be rinsed off before it goes in the washing machine. Don’t make the same mistake I did!

We have a diaper sprayer hooked up to our toilet that makes our lives a lot easier for rinsing diapers before washing. Some moms believe in the dunk and swoosh method but I on the other hand love to stay as far away from toilet water as possible, thank you very much!

That’s where the Spray Pal (c/o) comes in. This handy little tool has revolutionized poopy diapers & laundry for me and our family. If you are pre-kids or haven’t cloth diapered you may think I am over exaggerating but I’m not. This genius little piece of cloth diapering equipment holds the diaper in place with a big, strong, clip and closes shut with heavy-duty snaps to create a little tent so you can use your diaper sprayer as strong as it can go all while protecting your bathroom and yourself from getting sprayed with poop water. It’s a beautiful thing!

The Spray Pal is made from heavy duty plastic. I was really impressed with how stiff and sturdy it was because that stream of water that comes from the diaper sprayer can be very powerful! For the first time I was able to use the sprayer full blast without spraying water everywhere, thus getting the diaper nice and clean! In the picture I only have the top snap done up so you can see all three snaps. There are also snaps to keep it shut in the closed position.

The clip that holds the diaper in place is giant and strong. The only thing falling into the water is the poop!

The snaps used on the Spray Pal are incredibly strong. They are like the snaps on cloth diapers but feel even stronger, especially when used in conjunction with the firm plastic of the Spray Pal it’s self.

In this photograph I am ACTUALLY spraying an ACTUAL poopy cloth diaper. I’ve never got a poopy diaper this clean before. My husband was actually saying, “OK, Steph…I think you’re done…ok…seriously…you were done 5 minutes ago!”. It only took about 1 minute to spray the diaper off completely. Once I was done I unclipped the diaper and wrung it out so there wasn’t a big soaking wet diaper in in our pail and TA-DA! All clean! Well, clean enough that when it goes through the wash, you wont get any nasty surprises when you open up your washing machine.

Once I’m done with the Spray Pal I hang it back on the hook for my sprayer in a wet bag. Every time we do a load of diaper laundry, I take the Spray Pal out and put it in a new clean wet bag and wash the dirty one. It’s a pretty good system and we haven’t had any issues yet.

Now it’s your chance to score the Spray Pal to use on your own diapers. This contest is open to residents of Canada & the US only. The contest runs until February 6th 2015. Pssst…You can come back every day until then and use the free entry 😉

    Having a Spray Pal would mean cleaner diapers and less staining.

    • You got that right, RJ! Staining is my worst nightmare because I like to think I can keep my cloth diapers for the next baby or at least sell them and get something for them!
      Best of luck 😀

    How would winning a Spray-Pal change your life?

    Winning a Spray-Pal would change my life for the better in so many ways. I hand wash my diapers so having this would not only make the washing process easier but it would also give me more time to spend with kiddo. (Also thank you for doing this giveaway.)

    • It does make the washing process just so easy! No gross surprises in the washing machine, either! Best of luck, Sara! 😀

      Stephanie

  • I had a sprayer on the side of my toilet but never a guard/splash protector thingy like this. Wow… this would have made cloth diapering that much easier. Unfortunately these inventions come out after I’m out of that stage with my children. Although, fortunately we ARE out of that stage with our children.

    Thanks for sharing!

    • Oh, and please stop by the giveaways page of my blog and feel free to link up your giveaway there.
      xoxo

    • Isn’t that always the way, Jennifer? I’m sure as soon as we are out of the baby stage the coolest inventions ever will be invented!

      Thanks for stopping by 😀

    Cleaner diapers so it’ll make it easier for this soon to be first time mom!

  • Monica Geglio

    I don’t have a diaper sprayer and I’m on my second baby with cloth diapers!! I’ve looked into it but I just didn’t think it was necessary. However, after swishing poopy cloths by hand in the toilet when I forget to use an additional throwaway/flush liner, I see how this could be very convenient! I still have over a year left of cloth diapering, so this would be a handy little tool to add to our bathroom!! 🙂

    • Wow! You’re a trooper! Good for you for sticking it out so long. You’re super mom! Best of luck with the giveaway!

      Stephanie

  • Jamie

    If I win this, then my husband will finally let me buy a sprayer!!!

    • woooh! Best of luck! A sprayer needs a Spray Pal, that’s for sure!! It’ll make your life a whole lot easier.

      Stephanie

  • Kristyn Jean Demuysere

    Baby is just starting solids! I NEED this!! haha

    • It’s essential! Like another commenter said it should be on every cloth diaper gift registry! Good Luck! 😀

      Stephanie

  • This thing is AWESOME!!! I’m sure this makes the life of cloth diapering mamas so much easier!

    • SO much easier! It’s like a little shower stall for your diapers haha! Best of luck if you entered! 😀

  • Morgan Schwall

    If we won this, we’d invest in spray & my life would be SO much easier when it came to soiled diapers!

  • Kristina

    It would make it easier to get my husband into cloth diapering. He’s very sensitive to poo!

    • Yes, I hear this a lot from other moms! It is nice to have their support so anything that will make it easier to get them involved is awesome!

      Thanks and good luck 😀

    All of the poop….I have a sprayer and the poop gets everywhere.

    • ugh, I had no idea there would be water spraying everywhere! Especially POOP water! Best of luck!

      Stephanie

  • Christie

    We just started solids and failed to grab one ahead of time… This should be on every baby registry!

  • Candice Balser

    Winning a Spray Pal would change my life because I would be able to avoid constant icky poo messes.

      Stephanie

  • Sarah Bown

    Because the poop is only going to get worse…

  • Ok thats awesome! I use a liner with my almost 2 year old son and we just throw the waste in the toilet and I put the liner in a scented bag to be thrown out with wipes!

  • Amaranth

    If I won a Spray-Pal, it would make learning to cloth diaper easier and my husband would be a lot happier with using this idea, since he’s a little unsure about the whole poo idea. Haha! We are expecting our first in April and are trying to get set up with cloth diapering, so this would be awesome to win! Thanks for the opportunity!

  • Marthe Bishop-McDonald

    I was just outside spraying my little one’s diapers off with the hose while holding them on the back of a sterilite bucket lid. As I did this I was literally thinking and asking God for the Spray Pal Shield and Sprayer. I know people did without them for centuries but it would truly make my life a whole lot easier. Thanks for the opportunity to win the set!

  • Bethany

    I’m definately going to need one! Planning on cloth diapering with my first baby, due at the end of May! This is definately on the list 🙂

  • Elizabeth

    So glad you joined us for “Tuesday Talk”!

    Stop back by today for “Pincrazy Thursday” – We just went live! 🙂

  • Chalene Alic

    Baby is EBF right now but turns six months soon and is really starting to eye our food, so you know what that means!!!!

  • Karen Waldorf

    I already have a Spray Pal and absolutely love it! I would be hard pressed to continue cloth diapering without my sprayer and Spray Pal, but with them even the worse poopy mess is no big deal! A friend of mine is expecting and planning to try out cloth and borrow some of my stash, I’d love to win this and be able to give her a sprayer & Spray Pal too!

  • That would have been a great gadget to have when we were CD’ing. Much less clean up after cleaning up.

    We have just started cloth diapering and will soon be starting solids. I think I will need this for sure once we start solids. Will definitely make life easier!

  • Amanda

    Would be amazing for our potty training adventures.

  • Theresa Hover

    Anything I can do to make cloth diapering easier for my husband, the better chance I have of him sticking with it. This would definitely be a life saver when it comes to his fear of poopy stuff.

  • Steel Springs

    I really do need a Spray Pal. We’ve cloth diapered for two years without a sprayer or a spray pal (scrape and plop method) and it’s not a wonderful method. We’re trying to conceive our second child right now and plan to cloth diaper. I would love to use a sprayer and Spray Pal once we get to that point with a second.

  • Laura

    I’m currently expecting my first child, due May 1st. We have been working hard on starting a cloth diaper collection, and I’ve had my eye on a spray pal for a while. I’d love to try it out!

  • Nicholle

    It would certainly change my mood every time I have to clean a stinky diaper!

  • This looks amazing. We cloth diapered and this would have been amazing to have! Maybe we will win this and can use it when baby #2 happens!!

    Love your blog, by the way!! I am now following you on all your social media! 🙂 Can’t wait to read more of what you have!!

    Thanks for linking up with the Saturday Spotlight! 🙂 Hope to see you around there again!!!

    I think a Spray Pal will make things so much easier when my baby starts solids!

    A great idea, wonder if we have these in the UK, although I am so glad my boy is well past this stage. : )

  • Amy Lockard

    It wold be great to win so my first cloth diapering experience can be as smooth as possible!

  • Jennifer Gracie Gaws

    I would love to not have to clean my toilet every time I spray a diaper because of it splattering everywhere.

  • When we have kids one day I totally plan on using cloth diapers, and with the experience I have using them from baby-sitting this would come in handy! Something to definitely consider when the time comes:)

    I actually have one but would LOVE to gift this to someone very dear to me!!

    A spray pal is something I would love to have but probably couldn’t buy for myself. It would be wonderful to win!

  • Jessica

    I want this so bad!

  • Amy Baker

    Right now I’m wiping the poop off of my 14 month old’s diaper. Needless to say, this isn’t really working optimally… 😉 A spray pal has been on my wish list for a while now!

  • Gabrielle Marie Danz

    It would change my life because right now I dunk my diapers and if I get one of these my fiance would finally let me get a sprayer!!!

  • Regina Jimenez Boeck

    I NEED this! rinsing poop out of a cloth diaper is NO fun. :/

  • Lynda E

    I never heard of a toilet side sprayer – this is brilliant! Thanks so much for linking up to Awesome Life Friday – I hope you’ll come back again this week! http://rchreviews.blogspot.com

  • April H

    We are expecting our first and a spray pal would be amazing! We have a very small bathroom and I could see it really helping out!

  • Anna W

    My friend needs a spray pal, she cloth diapers!

  • Kimert

    I currently use a diaper sprayer but no protector. I find I have to clean up around the rim, etc. after I use the sprayer – this would cut my diaper spraying time down by a lot!

  • Michelle Douzat

    We will be starting solids soon, so no more easy ebf poops! This would really help the transition, especially for my hubby. I think this would encourage him to continue helping with diaper changes! 🙂

  • Petra S

    I am hoping to win this for my daughter who is expecting her first baby (our first grandchild) any day now. She will be cloth diapering and a Spray Pal would be such a help to her. So I guess it would be more of a help to her than me. 😀

    Petra Sartor

  • Marchi

    Expecting our first child in April and this would be a huge help!!

  • Lara Clinton

    It would make CD-ing a lot easier for us!

  • Annalisa Nelson

    I currently wash diapers by hand and a Spray Pal would make the process wayyy less time consuming!

  • Melanie Lapierre

    No more mess!!! 🙂

  • I cloth diaper and we’ve just reached the 6.5 month mark, so I’m debating whether to get out our diaper sprayer! If the poop is still mostly liquid, will the sprayer still work or will I just have a wet and even messier diaper on my hands? I’ve been wiping the diapers down using toilet paper and it is NOT FUN. The diaper situation is DEFINITELY different (and more challenging!) now that solid foods have been introduced! I’ve never heard of the spray pal but now I’m intrigued.

  • Claire Rheinheimer

    I use a lot of toilet paper cleaning up spray that gets all over the toilet. Having a Spray Pal would actually save me money on toilet paper!

  • Kate Edkin

    Would make cleaning poop ….. Cleaner!

    I never cloth diapered and this was interesting to read. Thanks for linking up with Motivational Monday.

  • Breanne Pesis

  • Stephanie O’Day

    This would be so wonderful! Quick and easy! Anything that makes my life easier, I love already! No mess and keeps everything confined so it doesn’t go everywhere! So great.

  • Carrie B. Henery

    I already use the sprayer a lot, and we haven’t started solids! I have eczema on my hands, so the less I come into contact with water, the better. We manually wash our wipes and dipes because our washer doesn’t have hot water, so every convenience we can get helps! Thanks, and good luck to me and everyone

  • Aurora P

    I would love it to avoid poop everywhere in the bathroom

  • Meagan hart

    It would reduce my laundry time when I wash diapers.

  • Gladys Aguilar

    If I win this my husband might actually help with diaper duty

  • Katy Baird

    I’d be able to share the love with one of my friends who is expecting in March. She’s on the fence about CD, I think this would help her stick with cloth.

  • Anel Winney

    Winning a spray pal/sprayer would make life easier because as a first time mom, I could use all the help I can get.Plus, it will help by making it easier to clean the diapers, so my husband will be more willing to do it! 🙂

  • Dusty

    Little one hasn’t started solids yet. So far cloth diapering has been so easy. Hoping a spray pal will keep it that way 🙂
