Cloth Diapers: the healthy, convenient, and environmentally smart choice for you and your baby

FAQs

Sweet Cheeks Delivers!

Do I have to buy the diapers I use?

No, we supply you with all the diapers you will reasonably need. We do keep track of the number of diapers in your account, so if some go missing or are damaged beyond normal wear and tear, you will be required to pay $4 for flat folds, $6 for fitted diapers and $8.50 for bamboo diapers.

How do you clean the diapers?

We have computerized equipment with a programed wash cycle that includes a heat cycle setting of 180 °F. Bacteria are eliminated at 162°F degrees. By heating to 180 °F we thoroughly ensure all bacteria are killed and the diaper is sanitized. As well minor cream spots are released in this high heat adding to better absorbency of the clean diaper. We have a number of rinses each with their own spin cycles. The total wash time exceeds 3 hours. We use a 3 step soap process that finishes with our environmental product. This product reduces VOC’s and residue as well as skin irritating whiting agents normally found in general home use soaps. We Ph balance and randomly test to ensure this high standard you should expect is maintained. Read more about our Wash Process

Can I suspend your diaper service when I go on vacation?

Yes! You will be billed for the first week you are away (as we normally need to pickup or drop off when you are away.) After the first week, any remaining prepaid weeks will be credited to your account when you re-start the service. Short notice of one day is all we need to suspend your service. If you will be gone for more than 3 weeks, we will need our diapers back to keep them in circulation. Your spot and any credit on your account is maintained. See Our Price List for further details.

Can I use your service if I live in an apartment or condo?

Absolutely! If you have a balcony, you can place the garbage can there during the week. And on the scheduled delivery day, place it in the hall for morning pickup. If odour is a problem, sprinkle some baking soda on the diapers. Contact your apartment complex, some may give you a credit for saving them the $200/yr waste bill your disposable diapers cost them to haul away to landfill. They do not have HRM collection.

Do I have to be home on the scheduled delivery day?

No! We will remove the soiled diapers (from the garbage can placed outside your house), and leave you with a week's supply of fresh, clean diapers. That’s right! We come by once a week not every two weeks like regular garbage. And you can’t forget to take the can to the curb as we come to your placement of the can along side your home.

I have two children in diapers. Can I get a discount?

Yes! For two or more children we offer a 10% discount on the second or next child of the lowest priced service taken.

My baby is due in a couple of months. When should I call?

Call right away! We suggest a pre-birth delivery two weeks prior to mom’s due date for a single birth, and three weeks prior to due date for twins. Then you will ready to use cloth diapers from the very start!   We pro-rate your second cycle month bill from the birth date so it will cost you nothing extra to have these diapers early and ready to use on day one.
