How To Fold Flat Diapers:
There are several ways to fold your flat diapers.
Origami Fold: Provides a neat and trim coverage, and allows you to put the bulk of the diaper where it's needed most.
Kite Fold: A simple way to fold the diaper for bigger babies approx 6 months or older.
Wash & Care
Before Using the Diapers
Pre-wash flat diapers on hot at least once before use. The diapers will shrink approx 10%, become thicker, softer and more absorbent with the first few washes. Prints may fade slightly.
Washing Flat Diapers
Keep wet and dirty diapers in a ventilated diaper pail. Wash diapers in warm/hot water with 1/2 the recommended amount of detergent as stated on the detergent’s container. Too much or too little may cause your diapers to possibly stink, leak, or leave baby with a rash.
A cold pre-rinse can be used for particularly soiled loads. Make sure that diapers are rinsed clean after washing. Any residue from poop, urine, detergent or vinegar can make your diapers smell. Tumble or line dry.
Do Not Use Fabric Softener: Doing so will coat the diapers making them water repellent and reduce the absorbency of the diaper. *If you use dryer sheets in your dryer for other laundry this can coat your dryer and transfer to your diapers.
Do Not Use Bleach: Doing so will cause the fabric's fibers to break down rapidly.
Do Not Use Rash Creams with Fish Oil: Creams with fish oils will leave a waxy residue on the fabric making them less absorbent, water repellent and may potentially cause leaks. If rash cream is needed, use a liner between your baby's bottom and the diaper to prevent the cream from transferring onto the diapers.
If staining occurs, it is important that any products used on the diapers and covers to remove the stains are mild so as not to irritate the baby’s skin and/or cause the diapers to prematurely deteriorate. In most cases, laying the stained diapers out in the sun is the safest and most effective way of removing stains.
