Happy Heiny's

Happy Heiny's solids

Store wet and soiled diapers in a dry pail. There is no need to rinse soiled diapers prior to washing. The solid waste of older babies can be removed by shaking the diaper contents into the toliet.

Remove inserts from pocket prior to washing. THEN:

  1. Cold Soak Wash on hot with slightly less than ¼ cup of detergent
  2. You can add vinegar to the wash to help fight oder.
  3. Manufacturer suggest a downy ball full.
  4. Rinse well to ensure all detergent is removed from diapers.
  5. (Manufacturers suggestion) Drying in the dryer is allowed for PUL.
You can dry our PUL products on high heat and although we have had prolonged use with these products we have not noticed any break down of our PUL. Drying on high heat can keep your Happy Heiny functioning like new. ( FTM suggests hang drying your diapers and inserts)

Suggested Detergents:

Happy Heiny suggest using Tide, Sunlight, Cheer, Era, and Clout (Costco Brand). These are not made with any of the natural oily substances which leave a residue on the fleece.

Detergents NOT to use:

Natural soaps are often made with oils. These should NOT be used. They will leave a residue on the fleece an cause it to repel urine.

Do Not use Sport Wash or Sensi Clean to remove oders from diapers or inserts

NEVER use fabric softener of any kind on diapers. Liquid fabric softeners and dryer sheets both leave a waxy residue on diapers.

Diaper rash creams can cause repelling. For best results either place a small wash cloth on top of the fleece or use a paper liner.

HEMP:

Your hemp products have been professionally washed and dried 1 time. It will need up to 8 more washings and dries before it is fully absorbent. When washing your hemp the first few times do NOT wash it with your fleece products. Hemp has natural oils in it and the oils can coat your fleece. After your hemp has been fully primed you may wash it with all of your diapering products.

Chinese Pre-Folds

From the world wide web:

  • You should run your diapers through a cold presoak cycle, to knock off the good and stuck!!
  • Wash only 2 dozen diapers at a time. It's best to use a detergent with no phosphates and minimal additives and to use less detergent than listed on the box. They say not to use natural soaps because they will coat the diapers. (I don’t know this for a fact) Just be sure to use 1/2 of the recommended amount. Do not wash too many diapers at once or pilling will occur from the friction in the washer.
  • Use a hot wash and a cold rinse with the highest water level. If rashes are a problem, you may wish to triple rinse Vinegar helps get rid of detergent/soap residue. DO NOT WASH COVERS WITH DIAPERS!
  • Do not use fabric softener or chlorine bleach ~ bleach causes premature breaking of the fibers and fabric softener adds a coating to the diapers that make them less absorbent.
  • Dry on normal or high heat for about 60 minutes. To make diapers dry faster, add a dry towel to the dryer. Drying in the dryer helps sterilize the diapers, as does drying in direct sunlight. Direct sunlight will help bleach out stains.

Diapers (prefolds and inserts) will not reach their full absorbency until washed and dried a few times (3 or more.) This is because the cotton fibers need to be "fluffed up" a bit first.

Diaper Covers

Some covers such as the Bummi Super Whisper Wrap may be machine washed and thrown into the dryer to dry. But other covers require special care to retain their waterproofing.

After removing the soiled diaper from your baby, fold the velcro closures onto the soft loop strips to protect the tabs during laundering. This prevents the diapers from sticking to each other and the velcro from collecting lint during the wash cycle.

Rinse all solid waste off the diaper as best as possible. Rinse in cold water to prevent stains from setting. Store the rinsed diapers in the diaper pail. Some prefer to pre-treat the diapers while they are being stored before laundering.  Treat a soiled diaper promptly to avoid stains, some stains may come out right away; others may gradually fade after a few washes and treatments. Hot water will set stains, so a cold pre-rinse is recommended as well as a cool or warm wash.

Wash the diapers in warm water with your choice of detergent nothing with fabric softener or bleach, (much less than the normal amount for a wash load, in our experience, only a small amount of detergent is needed). An extra rinse may be necessary if you have very hard water, or tend to use more than the recommended amount of detergent.

Follow the instructions that come with your covers, we love hanging ours in the sun to dry.
