Washing Instructions

 

Presoak:
  • For soiled diapers, rinse the diaper flap portion in cold water.
  • Fold fastening tabs closed.
  • Half fill your diaper pail with cold water and add 1/4 cup of baking soda, vinegar, or an additive recommended for presoaking diapers.
  • Soak overnight.
  • Stubborn stains can be treated with a stain remover. Follow manufacturer's recommendations.
  • DO NOT use bleach, pure soap, or detergent, this will cause breakdown of the diaper's fibres.
  •  

    Wash:
  • Empty contents into washer and spin out excess water.
  • Wash in warm water with your choice of detergent. Use approximately half of the recommended quantity.
  • Thoroughly rinse diapers. Use a second rinse if required.
  • Diapers should be washed separately.
  • DO NOT use detergents that contain pure soap or fabric softener. They leave a coating on the diapers that may affect the absorbency.
  • DO NOT use bleach. It will drastically weaken the fabric and is not safe for baby’s delicate skin.
  •  

    Dry:
  • Tumble dry on a low heat setting or hang to dry.
  • Weather permitting you can hang diapers outdoors. Sunshine is a natural whitener!
  • Diapers may take longer to dry than other articles of clothing. To shorten drying time, a dry towel can be added to dryer to draw moisture.
  • DO NOT use fabric softener. It leaves a coating on the diapers that may affect the absorbency.
  • DO NOT dry on high heat and/or for excessive lengths of time. It may prematurely wear out the diapers and/or damage the fabric.
