Cloth hire is a great way to try a variety of cloth nappies before investing money into an endeavor that may potentially not work out. Many cloth nappy hire services provide a range of styles and brands.
Before hiring, ask how the service sanitises between uses. If the service does not sanitise as per Australian Laundering Standards, or the relevant laundering standards in your country (ie. using heat or chemicals to sanitise) between hires, use a service that does.
If you live in South Australia, Stork Linen Service have been operating in SA for 30 years. They provide, deliver and launder terry toweling nappies, catering for both small scale domestic use and large scale childcare use.
They only charge 29c per nappy with a $5 delivery fee! Gift vouchers are available and are an excellent environmentally sustainable baby shower gift. Laundering is done in industrial machines. Contact Sandeep ph: 0450997934
