Washing Your Cloth Diapers

Washing Cloth Diapers and Covers

Wash and dry new cloth diapers 5 to 10 times to remove chemicals. This will also increase the absorbency of your cloth diapers. Do not worry if you notice that your cloth diapers “quilt up” during this process (prefolds). This is normal.

Daily Care Instructions

o    First, run a cold rinse or soak cycle with no detergent.

o    Second, run a hot/warm cycle with detergent. Do not use bleach.

o    Third, follow with a third cold rinse

o    Tumble dry the diapers in dryer on low or hang to dry. Do not use fabric softener or pure soap. Never dry on high heat.

o    We suggest line drying the shells of the diapers to insure they last to their maximum life time.

o    Some suggested detergent: Rockin’ Green, Charlie’s Soap, Mountain Green Free & Clear
