Wash before first use.
There are lots of different wash routines for cloth nappies so it's just about finding a simple effective routine that works for you. Here's our general guide for washing your nappies:
Once baby is weaning you need to remove all solids from used nappies, pull out any inserts and then pop in to a wet bag, bucket or basket until wash day. We recommend washing every 2-3 days with a powder detergent. Please check your detergent guide and use the correct dose for drum size, water hardness and heavy soiling.
On wash day run a prewash (30-60 minute wash) with up to half a dose of detergent to remove most of the soiling.
Then use a long warm (40-60 degrees) wash with a full dose of detergent. The main wash should be 2 hours+ and about 3/4 full when wet. If your machine isn't very full you can bulk it out with small items like muslins, tea towels or baby clothes.
We recommend a spin speed of up to 1000rpm.
Line dry where possible. Inserts may be tumble dried on low if needed. Avoid drying too close to direct heat such as radiators.
