Tips & Care
(1)Wash before first use. Please wash colours separately.
(2)It usually will take a few washes to reach its full absorbency (could be 6 washes or more)

Detergent recommendations
1.We recommend using detergents that are free from optical brighteners, fabric softeners, and dyes. Many laundry detergents have such additives that can build up on cloth or cause other problems. Lots of customers recommend Tide, Gain, Purex, FOCA, etc., and they regularly see issues with Charlie's Soap, Rockin' Green, and homemade detergents. Most mainstream laundry detergents work well for cloth and these recommendations are for your reference only.

How to deodorize for cloth diapers?
(1)Two scoops oxy clean, generous amount of tea tree oil or olive oil.
(2)Use fragrance-free, bleach-free, additive-free detergent.
(3)Use only ½ to ¼ the amount of detergent you would normally use.
(4)DON'T USE: bleach, fabric softener, dryer sheets, diaper creams - they leave a residue and reduce absorbency.
(5)Dry on medium heat or hang to dry.

What about the poop?
Flushable liners will make your cloth diapering routine VERY easy. You simply lay the liner on the inside of the diaper.
When baby poops, you lift out the liner, with the mess inside, and flush it down the toilet. Some folks prefer to use washable inserts for poop patrol instead, or to go the no-liner route by shaking solids into the toilet and rinsing out the diaper before putting it in a wet bag or pail.
