Nappy Care Instructions

Nappy Care Instructions

    1. To get the most out of your Bamboo Cloth Nappies, please read our Care Instructions and follow the steps.

Your nappies will be more efficient and longer lasting.

    1. Before Use – Wash nappies and booster inserts so they can reach their full absorbency potential.

It can take up to 10 washes to reach maximum absorbency.

    1. Leaking – To ensure your baby’s nappy doesn’t leak, ensure a snug fit around the legs and tummy.
    2. Change the booster insert regularly, usually every 2 to 3 hours.
    3. When you notice a booster insert becoming less absorbent, it’s time for a strip wash.
    4. Care - Flush away waste from disposable liner with  and place wet nappy and booster insert in a bucket with a lid until washing day. Do not soak nappies and booster inserts for longer than two days.
    5. Washing – Use a cool to warm wash, definitely not above 30 degrees. Only use ½ to 1/3 of the normal amount of detergent.
    6. No added bleaches or fabric softeners please.
    7. Drying – Sunshine is always best to keep them fresh and sanitised. A light tumble dry is OK as well.
    8. Strip Washing – A build up of detergent and nappy creams can cause your booster inserts to develop an odour or begin leaking. This is the only time you should do a strip wash. Regular strip washing ruins the booster inserts.
    9. Strip Washing Method - Place clean and dry booster inserts in a hot wash with half a cup of bi-carb soda and half a cup of white vinegar. Follow with a normal wash without any detergent. If there are still soapy bubbles while washing, continue with a rinse cycle until there are no more bubbles
    10.  It may be necessary to repeat the hot wash cycle with no detergent, and then more rinse cycles, until the water runs clear.
    11. Line dry in full sun.
