Before using the inserts: wash and dry your inserts 2-3 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:
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
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.
in hot or warm water on regular cycle.
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.
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.
