Professional Laundering that’s Earth-Friendly, too
At Baby Diaper Service we go the extra mile to ensure that your diapers are cleaned better than anywhere else and with less water waste going into the sewer system. Using state-of-the-art equipment and testing we ensure that your diapers come out of our washing machines bacteria-free and pH balanced while retaining their softness and absorbency. And because of the volume of diapers we service, we can launder them with a minimum of water and fuel waste.
To assure you get top-quality diapers, we use a 98% biodegradable wash formula. The finished product is pH balanced to match your baby’s skin and has less residual chlorine than Seattle’s tap water. We regularly submit random diapers to an independent laboratory for testing to guarantee we are meeting all our sanitary requirements. Our inspectors replace any diaper that is stained or worn out with another sanitary processed diaper.
Because of our efficient use of resources, we are able provide our customers with the best diapers anywhere and at a very affordable price! From an environmental standpoint, there is no better way to wash your diapers and have them be as thoroughly cleaned as we can get them. For you, that’s peace of mind. And that’s the Baby Diaper Service hallmark of quality service: caring for your baby and the environment.
Did you know? That a study done by “Best Foot Forward” concluded that diapers from a professional diaper service have the smallest carbon footprint of any diapering method. That includes home laundering which requires 43.7% more resources than we do!

Baby Diaper Service has been serving generations of babies in the Puget Sound Region since 1946. After returning from WWII, Dave Abrams ran his business until 1972 when he sold it to Brian Smithson. Mr. Smithson presided over the business for 30 years implementing many positive changes. He was instrumental in expanding the company’s service and was a frequent President of the National Association of Diaper Services.
In 2003, the business was purchased by current owner Mark Stief; an eleven year owner of a competing baby diaper service called Pure & Natural Diaper Service. Mark Stief runs the business based on two principles: communications and building lasting relationships. After working for many years at the United Nations in NYC and in banking Mr. Stief decided to start his own diaper service and in his words, “give back to the community he loves and work toward improving the Environment we all cherish”. He was able to combine his passion for helping people and families, while improving the Environment ,by creating a diaper service that reflected his personality and desire to give back to the community. It is his utmost goal to see that all of his customers are satisfied with the service and discover how easy cloth diapering can be.
