Should I soak my reusable nappies?
When you first get your nappies you can soak them for 24 hours, or wash them a few times. This is to kickstart the Reusable Nappies so they can perform the best – which is to soak up real good. It can take up to 6-8 washes before they perform the best.
We do not recommend soaking them after that, instead rinse and Dry Pail. Soaking, especially in warm rooms, and if standing for a day or two creates a delicious environment for germs to grow.
Why does my pocket nappy leak?
When pocket nappies are leaking, it can be a few different reasons. Initially you need to pre soak the nappy and insert booster cold for 24 h so that the fabric kickstarts. Like any new fabric whose purpose it is to soak up wetness, it needs 8-10 washes before it gets really good. Sometimes even more.
The next thing then is that you might need to use 2 insert boosters rather than 1. This will give a bit extra support to soak up so that it doesn’t leak. We wouldn’t recommend using more than 2 as it would get a bit too bulky.
Third is to look at how you have buttoned the nappy, making sure it sits good over legs and waist. Using the front buttons to make the nappy a bit more snug.
Why do my nappies smell even though I have washed them?
Reusable nappies should not smell, especially not after washing them. Straight after use, we recommend to quickly rinse them off then Dry Pail in an airy basket. When you have enough for a washing machine pop them in for a quick pre-wash at 40-60 degrees. Once done, wash them again for a longer program at 40-60 degrees. Only use a small amount of your preferred detergent. After the wash hang out to dry in the sun.
