~Drybees Cloth Diapers Care Guide~
Preparing your Drybees Cloth Diapers for use
- Please pre-wash your Drybees cloth diapers before use. Wash your diaper
in hot water with ½ the manufactured recommended amount of detergent.
You may dry your Drybees cloth diapers in the dryer on high, or outside
on a clothesline.
Storing your Dirty Drybees Cloth Diapers
You can choose to use a “wet pail” or “dry pail” to store your dirty diapers until wash day. The “wet pail” method has been shown to be a drowning hazard for young children so we only use and recommend the “dry pail” method. All you need is a trash can, diaper pail or wet bag or a combination. We use a Wahmies wetbag inside of a diaper pail. Simply dump any solid poop into the toilet and throw into the diaper pail where they will wait until wash day! Using a diaper sprayer attached to the commode can help spray any stuck on poop off the toilet. Remember that those liquid breastfed poops don’t need to come off the diaper. They are extremely water soluble and will wash right off in the washer.
Washing your Drybees Cloth Diapers
Washing your Drybees cloth diapers is very easy! First, fold back your laundry tabs. This ensures that you won’t find the dreaded “diaper snake” after you wash your diapers. Next pull out the inserts. Finally throw it all in the washing machine! Choose the water level that will completely cover all your diapers and use ½ the manufacturer’s recommended amount of detergent. You can use a second rinse to ensure all of the detergent is rinsed out. Please dry your diapers in the dryer or outside on a clothesline.
Tips and Tricks
* Avoid using “Free
and Clear”, baby detergent or cold proceessed (natural) soap based
laundry detergents. These can leave a residue that builds up over time
causing stinky dipes!
~~*Also remember there is no hard and fast rules for cloth diaper washing. What might work for you may not work for others. The water in your area plays an important role in diaper/laundry washing.
