Shelf Life of Disposable Diapers

I found a few bags of diapers that we never used. They are about 2-3 years old. I am thinking about selling them on Craigslist or to some friends, but are they still good?

Unless they have gotten damp, they are good.

Yep, mom-from-missouri's right! They don't have a shelf-life- they have a half-life! We ran across some from when my first boy was born, just the other day (had packed them in a box of baby clothes, which was then stored away....and forgotten, when my second boy was born, LOL!), and we gave 'em to the neighbors- other than having a six-year-old pattern to them, they're the same as the newest ones, and they still do the job. Disposables have silica gel inside of them, and the only way that that could be compromised would be if they were exposed to damp. So gift away! With prices for diapers being so high, I'm betting that you're gonna be one popular person, mighty quick! ;o)

Just food for thought but instead of selling them why not donate them to a woman's shelter or homeless shelter?

Deeli's got a point. If you don't need the money, why not donate them? If your town has a Crisis Pregnancy or Pregnancy Resource Center, they'd be more than grateful.


I'd suggest FreeCycle, but the competition for such a premium item as diapers might be your undoing!
