Welcome to The Little Genie Reusable Nappy Challenge

The Nappy Challenge 1-31 May 2021

Get Started!

1. Pre Soak

Start by PreSoaking your Little Genie Pocket Nappies and Insert Boosters in COLD WATER for 24 hours. This will activate the fabric making its soaking abilities tip top! Once soaked, put them in the washing machine for a normal wash. Once dry they are ready to be used.

After the initial pre soak, we do not recommend soaking the nappies any more as they will lose their waterproofing. It is also a  great place for nasty germs to grow.

2. Dry Pail

Once used, flush solids(if any) down the toilet. Separate the Little Genie Pocket Nappy and Insert Booster(s). If no solids, place the Compostable Bio-Liner and Charcoal Baby Wipes in your home compost. They will within 1-2 months compost.  

Rinse to remove number 1 and 2, then place in an airy bucket(pail). Leave to dry pail till you are ready to wash them. We advice not  to leave for more than 2 days.

3. Washing

Put your Little Genie Pocket Nappies and Insert Boosters on a quick Pre Wash Programme. After this, bulk up the washing machine with other baby clothes and run a normal programme with a small amount of detergent at 40-60 degrees.

If you only have a few that need to be washed, you can skip to Dry Pail and  Pre Wash. Just rinse off by hand and then run through a Normal wash programme.

4. Drying

The sun works wonders for bacteria and drying the Pocket Nappies and Insert Boosters naturally. The sunlight is great for stains and the UV radiation will help remove the bacteria. The Pocket Nappies will dry slightly faster than the Insert Boosters. So once the Pocket Nappy is dry  you can place a one of the extra ones in to be used.

You can tumble dry the Pocket Nappies and Insert Boosters on low.

Getting your Reusable Pocket Nappies Ready

Once Pre-Soaked and Washed, you can start prepping them so they are ready to be used. Having your reusable pocket nappies ready to go makes it quicker and a bit easier as you need to do a nappy change. Once nappies are clean and dry it doesn't take much time to get them ready.
