Wash the shell before use to remove any chemicals from production (this isnít necessary for our specialty nappies). The inserts need to be washed increase absorbency. Peak absorbency is often reached after 5 washes. Alternatively you can soak the inserts overnight to help increase absorbency (not the shell though).
For ongoing care, rinse waste into the toilet and dry pail the nappy for up to 2 days (soaking is not recommended). Wash in cold to warm water (no more than 40deg or it may break down the PUL in the shell) and use a low spin speed. Only enzyme free detergent, such as Rockin Green, Earth's Choice or Ecostore, and only about one quarter of a cap full should be used. Do not use any fabric softener or bleach. Line drying is preferable, otherwise use a low temperature setting on the tumble dryer. Use the sun to your advantage - it is a very powerful stain remover!
Do not use barrier or nappy rash creams unless they are MCN safe or used with a liner as they can interfere with absorbency. Over time there may be a build up of detergent in the boosters that affects absorbency (or if somebody 'helpful' washes them using regular cleaning products) so the boosters will need a strip wash. To do this, wash all of your inserts in a hot wash with a couple of drops of dishwater detergent (no more than a couple otherwise you'll have suds everywhere!). Do an extra rinse of the inserts to ensure all the detergent is removed from the nappies. Dry as usual.
