Washing Instructions

Keep your wet and dirty nappies in a nappy pail.

Wash your nappies on warm/hot (up to 140F/60C) with the recommended amount of detergent per load as stated on the detergent’s box/bottle. Over-dosing on detergent also produces build up and is the single most common cause of leaking problems as it will leave residue causing your diapers to possibly leak, or leave baby with a rash. Using too little on the other hand, will cause your diapers to stink.

An additional rinse can be used for particularly soiled loads. Make sure that your diapers are rinsed clean. Any residue from poop, urine, detergent or vinegar can make your diapers smell.

Tumble dry on warm/hot (up to 60C) or line dry

Do not use fabric softeners or diaper rash creams. Softeners & creams leave a waxy residue on the fabric making them less absorbent, water repellent and may potentially cause leaks. Be aware that if you use dryer sheets in your dryer for other laundry this can coat your dryer and transfer to your diapers. This build up can cause repelling, leaks and rashes in sensitive skin. Do not use bleach. This will cause the diapers fabric and elastic to prematurely deteriorate

*Modern Cloth Nappies

Wash and dry your diaper once in warm water (up to 140F/60C) with detergent prior to first use. This causes the fibres to shrink, fluff up and become more absorbent.

*Prefolds and Flats

The diapers need to be pre-washed on hot at least once before use. Two or three times, and dried in between, is preferable as this causes the diapers to fluff up and become more absorbent. The diapers will shrink and get thicker with the first few washes. This shrinkage has been allowed for when designing the diapers.


Hand/Machine wash warm (60C). Tumble dry warm (60C) or hang dry.
Do not use bleach or put through a sanitize cycle. This will cause the waterproof lining to de-laminate.
Do not use fabric softeners or any other laundry additives.

Wet bags, laundry bags, wipes can be washed along with your regular diaper laundry.
Do not use bleach, fabric softener or put through a sanitize cycle. This will cause any waterproof lining to de-laminate.

*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 babys 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. .
