Step 1: Start with a cold water rinse/wash with no detergent. This will rinse out any urine and solid residue.
Step 2: Next perform a hot water wash cycle with detergent. Do NOT use the sanitary cycle and be sure your water heater is not set above 120 degrees as temperatures hotter than that can damage your cloth diapers.
Step 3: Now do a second cold or warm rinse, optionally you can add 3-4 drops of Lavender Essential Oil a natural antiseptic.
Step 4: Toss in the dryer on tumble/low - Tip: adding a dry towel or wool dryer balls can lessen the dry time. Cover and pocket diapers outers should be hung dry.
Important Information before washing your cloth diapers
Each diaper manufacturer has its own guidelines for care and use, including detergent recommendations. Please check with your manufacturer to avoid problems with warranties!
Generally speaking we DO NOT recommend using bleach, stain removers, borax, Rockin' Green, Biz, Bac-Out, Biokleen, or Oxy-Clean as they may damage your diapers.
