Wash & Care:
Before using the diapers: wash and dry your inserts 3-4 times on hot prior to first use. This causes the fibers to shrink, fluff up and become more absorbent. The inserts will shrink and get thicker with the first few washes. This shrinkage has been allowed for when designing the inserts.
General Wash & Care: Keep your wet and dirty diapers in a diaper pail. If you've stuffed the inserts inside the diaper, shake out the insert into your pail and throw the diaper in after changing your baby.
Because natural, organic and 100% cotton fibers tend to wear slightly more than conventional or synthetic fibers, a little extra care can extend the life of the diaper.
Wash in hot or warm water on regular cycle. Follow the recommended amount of detergent as stated on the soap's packaging based on your load size. Too much or too little may cause your inserts to possibly stink, or leave baby with a rash.
An additional rinse can be used for particularly soiled loads. Make sure that your diapers are rinsed clean. Any residue from poop, urine, or detergent can make your diapers smell. Tumble dry on any temperature or line dry.
Do not use fabric softener. It will coat the inserts, making them water repellent and reduce the absorbency of the inserts. Be aware that if you use dryer sheets in your dryer for other laundry this can coat your dryer and transfer to your diapers & inserts.
Do not use bleach. This will cause the fabric's fibers to break down. Do not use baking soda or vinegar in your wash. These are unnecessary.
Stain removal. If staining occurs, it is important that any products used on the diapers and covers to remove the stains are mild so as not to irritate the baby’s skin and/or cause the diapers to prematurely deteriorate. In most cases, laying the stained diapers out in the sun is the safest and most effective way of removing stains.
