Pocket Diaper Care

Pocket diapers with Polyurethane Laminate (PUL) outer layers should be washed and dried on hot before using. This will help seal any needle holes left in the PUL during construction.

Please allow your diapers to cool after drying them. Stretching the elastic while the diapers are still warm can lead to elastic failure.

On wash day, run the dirty diapers in a cold soak or prewash. If you have already soaked your diapers in a pail, spin out any remaining dirty water. Wash your diapers in HOT water with a moderate amount of detergent (1/4 - 1/2 of the recommended dose). Over-dosing on detergent produces build up and is the single most common cause of leaking problems. An additional rinse can be used for particularly soiled loads. Make sure that your diapers are rinsed clean. Any residue from poop, urine, detergent or vinegar can make your diapers smell.

Do not use fabric softener. It will coat the diapers making them water repellent and will cause leaks! Be aware that if you use dryer sheets in your dryer for other laundry this can coat your dryer and transfer to your diapers. If you encounter leaks, try line drying instead. "Free and clear" type detergents and natural products and soaps are not recommended for diapers containing polyester because of the soap build up they tend to leave. This build up can cause repelling, leaks and rashes in sensitive skin. Diapers do not require much detergent, too much will leave residue causing your diapers to possibly stink, leak, or leave baby with a rash. 1/4 the recommended amount per load is sufficient.

Wash and Care for Cotton and Organic Cotton Diapers

Wash and dry your diaper once in warm water* prior to first use. This causes the fibers to shrink, fluff up and become more absorbent. It is not necessary to wash more than this before using the diaper for the first time. The diaper will shrink and get thicker with the first few washes. This shrinkage has been allowed for when designing the diapers. Hemp inserts will need to be primed by washing and drying them 3-4 times on HOT prior to first use.

Keep your wet and dirty diapers in a diaper pail. If you're using pocket fitteds, shake out the insert into your diaper pail and throw the diaper in after changing your baby's diaper.

Because organic and 100% cotton fibers tend to wear slightly more than conventional or synthetic fibers, a little extra care can extend the life of the diaper. Wash your diapers in warm water* with a small amount of detergent on gentle cycle. Diapers do not require much detergent, too much will leave residue causing your diapers to possibly stink, leak, or leave baby with a rash. 1/4 the recommended amount per load is sufficient. Washing the diapers on hot can make our dyed organic diapers fade in color. An additional rinse can be used for particularly soiled loads. Make sure that your diapers are rinsed clean. Any residue from poop, urine, detergent or vinegar can make your diapers smell. Tumble dry on medium to low heat or line dry.

Do not use fabric softener. It will coat the diapers making them water repellent and reduce the absorbency of the diaper. Be aware that if you use dryer sheets in your dryer for other laundry this can coat your dryer and transfer to your diapers.

Do not use bleach. This will cause the fabric's fibers to break down.

Do not stretch the diaper while it is still warm. Allowing the diaper to cool after taking it out of the dryer will extend the life of its elastic.

*Warm means water temperature should not exceed 40 degrees C or 105 degrees F
