Start by removing the solids from the diaper. Read more about this topic in our guide handling dirty cloth diapers.
It’s a good idea to start by giving the diapers a cold wash to rinse them all up.
Use a long washing program of 60 degrees. Use the recommended amount of detergent indicated on the package to match the amount of laundry.
Add water-conditioner to the washing machine along with the diapers if you live in an area with hard water. Hard water can build up calcium in the inserts an course smell and bacteria.
If you don’t have enough diapers to fill your washing machine, you can supplement with towels and bedding.
Avoid vinegar, softener, detergent with perfume, and bleaching.
In the end, the most important thing is to create your own washing routine and do what works best for your family. However, always remember to take good care of your diaper- they are made with a lot of love and we hope the diapers can be used for many years to come.
