Before using the
diapers: wash and dry
your diaper once in warm water (up to 140F) with detergent prior to first use.
This causes the fibers to shrink, fluff up and become more absorbent.
If you bought several diapers, you may want to pre-wash one first as we
can only refund or exchange on unused/unwashed products.Made in the USA
Washing the Diapers
Keep your wet and dirty diapers in a diaper pail.
Wash your diapers on warm/hot (up to 140F/60C) with the recommended amount of
detergent per load as stated on the detergentís 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 140F/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 diaper's fabric & elastic
to prematurely deteriorate.
Do not stretch the diaper while it is still warm. Allowing the diaper
to cool after taking it out of the dryer will extend the life of its elastic.
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 babyís 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.
