These are not made with any of the natural oily substances which leave a
residue on the fleece.
NOT to use:
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
use fabric softener of any kind on diapers. Liquid fabric softeners and
dryer sheets both leave a waxy residue on diapers.
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 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.

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

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.
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.
