Washing and Care

Before using a new nappy

All items have to be washed prior to use. Wash it once before use on a short rinse cycle using a mild detergent. The nappies are ready to use once dry. The bamboo inserts will get more absorbent over time, the more you wash them.

Preparing to wash

Remove all solids, flush them & put the disposable liners in the bin. Don't keep soiled nappies in the dry pail or waterproof bag for more than 3 days.

Pre-rinse or Pre-wash

Pre-wash the nappies on a rinse cycle with no detergent.

Main Wash

We recommend washing the waterproof part of the nappy and the wet bag at 40°. A higher temperature will reduce the life span of your nappy over time. You can wash the inserts and wipes at 60°. We recommend washing powder over liquid. All of our washing instructions are recommendations and not strict guidelines. Obviously it comes down to personal preference on how you wash your nappies :) 

The main wash should be anywhere between 2-3 hours long and if your machine has an extra water setting then it's best to use this. 

There is no need to dry the nappies in between the pre-rinse cycle & main wash. 


We always recommend to line dry your nappies where possible. If you need to dry your nappies in a tumble dryer always use a low heat. A high temperature will reduce the life span of your nappies.
