Make sure to Pre Wash your cloth diapers before use
They must be pre-washed in hot water with a very small amount of detergent 2 or 3 times before they become absorbent. They reach their full absorbency after 10 washes.

How to properly care for your cloth diapers

  • Rinse diapers in a cold rinse cycle.
  • Wash on hot with detergent free of oils or any additives like fabric softeners.
  • Do an additional cold rinse cycle to make sure all soap is removed.
  • Dry on low heat or hang dry in the sun.

My diapers aren’t as absorbent as they used to be. What should I do?

Once in a while you may need to strip your diapers. This will remove any excess soap, oils or undesirable smells.

  • Wash once in hot water with one teaspoon (for high efficiency machines) to one tablespoon (for regular washing machines) with original liquid Dawn (blue formula).
  • Do two additional hot water washes with no detergent to completely rinse the diapers clean. If you still see bubbles, keep rinsing until the diapers are rinsed clean.
  • You can also try adding a small amount of vinegar to the rinse. This will help strip away any remaining soap.
