How to Wash Organic Cloth Baby Diapers

 

Step 1 – Wash your nappies in a non biological detergent, or soapnuts, on a low heat (30-40) and rinse twice after every wash. This will not only aid the longevity of your nappies, it will also ensure little to no detergent build up which can often reduce absorbency.

Step 2 - Dry your nappies on an airer away from direct heat and sunlight. Drying on an airer can damage the fibres in your nappies or destroy the waterproof layers which will cause absorbency problems and leaks.

Step 3 – Occasionally you will need to remove tough stains from light nappies and inserts, this can be done with brief periods in direct sunlight. The sun bleaches stains and contains antibacterial properties which are beneficial to you nappies.

Step 4 - Hard or crunchy nappies can be softened naturally by simply scrunching them in your hands or rubbing the fibres together. This is preferable to fabric softener which affects absorbency or tumble driers which can quickly damage nappy fibres.

Step 5 – Always wash dyed fabrics with dark colours for the first few washes to ensure they are colourfast. They should always be washed on low heats to preserve the life and quality of the dye.
