Spray Pal Review & Giveaway!

There are several items that changed how we cloth diaper completely, making it so much easier.

The first was installing a diaper sprayer into our bathroom.  That way, instead of scraping the solids off of a soiled diaper, DH and I could simply spray off the diaper into the toilet.

So.much.better.

However, then you come across a little problem.  Or, a big problem.  To get all of the solid off of the diaper, you have to turn the force of the sprayer up pretty high.  But then you tread a very fine line between cleaning the diaper off and holy goodness I just created a poo water waterfall and it's now covering my bathroom.

Enter item number two that changed our cloth diapering lives, the Spray Pal.


The Spray Pal is a tri-fold plastic angel of protection for your bathroom.  By clipping the diaper into the Spray Pal, the water coming from your diaper sprayer is routed into the toilet instead of all over your room.  When the diaper is finished being sprayed in the Spray Pal, you can also squeeze out the excess water and pop the diaper into the wetbag without ever having to even touch it.  

It would help if you could actually see it in action, right?  Well, here you go!



As a clean freak, having a Spray Pal next to our diaper sprayer has been almost life-changing in our cloth diapering journey.  I no longer have to wipe down the toilet, the walls, or the floors with any cleaning products after each diaper is sprayed.  A quick rinse down of the Spray Pal after the diaper is out and I'm done.  Typically I either set it in an extra wetbag on the floor or on a specific towel on the floor next to the toilet and I'm on to the next thing.  Having the Spray Pal means no more being paranoid that I'm making my bathroom dirtier and no touching soiled diapers.

It makes cloth diapering much more tolerable for those who tend to be a bit squeamish.  And for those of us who aren't?  Well, it just makes it a whole lot less messy.  

I am so, so excited to share this amazing product with all of my fellow cloth diapering friends for many reasons.  I love how awesome the Spray Pal is, but I also love what it stands for as well.  Spray Pal isn't a big business, it's a family.  Dave and Jen are two school teachers, who began cloth diapering with their first child.  After becoming frustrated with how messy diaper spraying was, they developed their own product at home to fix that problem, and began producing the Spray Pal device at home, just the two of them.  Not some huge business with a bazillion employees.  On a personal note, Jen gave birth to their second child, Ryan, one year ago.  Ryan was born a micropreemie at 25 weeks along.  Ryan was actually the first preemie to wear cloth in their children's hospital NICU at only two pounds!  Their family has fought hard as well as Ryan has fought so hard to grow and develop so wonderfully.  If you feel so inclined, you can follow his progress at the Watching Ryan Grow blog.  Outside of being hardworking parents of a toddler and a child with medical needs, Dave & Jen are also just good people, raising money for the March of Dimes as well as offering military discounts on their products.  I'm so happy to share this excellent family-run business with you all!

And, because I love all my readers & the Spray Pal family is so amazing, we're giving one Spray Pal to a lucky reader of the TNO blog!  As usual, let me know if you have any problems with the Rafflecopter entries!

  8. I actually haven't started cloth diapering yet, but plan to! My baby is now just 2 weeks old and still tiny. I ordered a cloth diaper to try out and am waiting until he gets a little bigger.

  10. Would love this! I've been cloth diapering for almost a year and was just talking to my husband about getting a sprayer but we have always decided not to because i thought of the yucky poo spay mist that would get everywhere. If i won this I'd get my sprayer and make my cloth diapering much easier!

  14. This is such an amazing idea! We've been cloth diapering since our little guy was around 3 weeks. We haven't started to use a sprayer yet, but the Spray Pal will be super useful when we do.

  19. We love the idea of this product to replace our make shift 10 gallon bucket with a hole in it right now. Hoping to get one before baby #2 arrives in June!

  20. We've been cloth diapering since our daughter was about 6 weeks old and both my husband and I heartily recommend it! We've never used a spray pal or sprayer before, so one would certainly reduce the ick factor.

  22. I haven't tried one, but it sounds like it would be great as we begin our cloth diapering adventure.

  23. my DS just turned one, and we have actually quit (or paused) cloth diapering because of the mess with his big-boy poops... but if i win this i am going to start up again! what a great invention!

  24. K has been CD'd since a week old and I've always just swished. This is sooo much better and with a set of twins on the way, we'll have plenty of fluff to be sprayed down.

  25. With my 1st, I pretty much stopped using prefolds once she started solids because it was such a chore to rinse off the poo... this would make it easy again! :-)

  30. How long have you been cloth diapering? Have you tried a Spray Pal before?::
    I have been cloth diapering since my oldest daughter was about 6 months old. She is now 3. And 100% potty trained since BEFORE she turned 2!!
    I have not yet had the joy of owning/using a spray pal.
    I would love to.
    You don't want to know how many times I've ended up with poop spray splash back in my face or all down my front.
    eewww.
    Hooray no pink eye! lol

  31. We have been cloth diapering since my daughter was 5 weeks old. She is six months today and I had to use my diaper sprayer for the first time last night. A spray pal would be an awesome addition!

    ReplyDelete
  32. We've been CDing for 4 months - we're just venturing into solids and could really use this great invention!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Ive been cloth diapering for a few months now I love it but hate all the water splatter when spraying them off so i would love to try the spray pal!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I've been cloth diapering only for a couple weeks. I had planned on it for awhile, but wanted to use of my disposable stash first. We are not into solids yet, but the Spray Pal definitely looks useful!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I am just getting into cloth diapering ( my first child is 6 weeks old and I'm trying to find ways to save $ since I'm staying home with him). I haven't tried the spray pal, but I'm pretty sure it would go a long way toward convincing my husband that it's a viable option! ;)

  36. I've been cloth diapering for two months and I love it :-)

  37. new to cloth diapering....what a great product idea!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I'm new to cloth diapering and I haven't tried a spray pal!

  39. Diaper Sprayers a few facts: No Diaper Sprayer on the market was manufactured for that purpose; they are all originally Hand Held Bidet Sprayers. That is why so many people are complaining about their sprayers breaking, because they were not made to handle the abuse. You can save money and buy a cheap plastic sprayer and then need to buy another one soon or you can get a Stainless Steel Sprayer at www.BathroomSprayers.com for a little more that will last, it comes with a 5 year warranty. And don't forget, using it as a Hand Bidet means you will save money on toilet paper, everyday....forever....Just a thought

  40. I've been cloth diapering since my daughter was born so about 14 weeks and we really love it. This product looks awesome and makes me feel confident that we will continue cloth diapering once she starts eating solid foods. My husband is a bathroom neat freak and says we need this product.
