Washing and Nappy Care

OK folks, this is the important stuff (and the most dreaded) BUT thanks to the wonderful inventions of washing machines, it makes keeping your nappies clean a DODDLE! Our advice....any time it gets a bit much, remember that our mums and grans washed these BY HAND!.....and be thankful!

Before First Use

  • Wash nappies and Inserts at least 3 times to build up absorbency
    (we know they're gorgeous and fluffy but its time to rough em up!)

Once used

  • Remove Nappy from Tushy
  • Knock any solids you can into the toilet
  • If you're using a disposable liner, chuck this in the bin or compost (not down toilet unless absolutely necessary please!)
  • Rinse nappy of any remaining solids
  • Dry Pail (for 1-2 days)

First wash

Thisย removes any excess soiling

  • 30'C-40'C Short cycle/ Quick Wash (20-40mins)
  • Use 1/2 Detergent (as its a small load)
  • Hold off from using fabric softener or bleach (these can damage the nappies or interfere with the absorbency)
  • Don't add any clothing to this wash....not a good resultย 

Main wash

This gives nappies and inserts a real good deep clean, it needs to be a long wash to give it chance to agitate all the fibres and get em squeaky clean!

  • 40'C-60"C Main wash/ Cotton Cycle (2-3hrs)
  • Add in towels, active wear, bibs, bedsheets etc, anything to bulk up the load! Machine should be about 3/4 full.
  • Use recommended amount of detergent
  • Hold off from using fabric softener or bleach (these can damage the nappies or interfere with the absorbency
