    Wash Routine

    Washing Your Nappies After Use:

    Remove and rinse any soiling

    (If only wet, no need to rinse - pop straight into the dry pail)

    Pre Wash every 2-3 days on a 40-60 degree cycle lasting 30-60min * if you use night nappies, pre-wash should be done daily. 

    Return prewashed nappies (still wet) to the dry pail until main wash

    Main Wash every 2-4 days depending on load size on a 40-60 degree cycle lasting 2.5-3 hours

    Line dry. Inserts can be placed in a clothes dryer.

    * A dry pale can simply be a basket, just ensure there are sufficient holes in the basket to allow air flow. A few examples are below:


    * Correct loading is required for optimal agitation. Aim for your machine to be full when dry and 3/4 full when items are wet

    * Amount of detergent required will depend on your machines size & what detergent you are using

    Washing New Nappies

    To prepare your new cloth nappies, we recommend washing them 3-5 times before use. This helps build up the absorbency. They can simply be popped in with your regular clothes washing and also in our pre and main washes.
