Blueberry Cloth Diaper Care

Blueberry Flat Cloth Diapers

 

Before Using the Diapers
  
The diapers need to be pre-washed on hot at least once before use. The diapers will shrink and get thicker with the first few washes. 

 

Washing the Diapers  

Keep your wet and dirty diapers in a diaper pail.  Wash your diapers in warm or hot water with 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. 

An additional rinse can be used for particularly soiled loads. Make sure that your diapers are rinsed clean. Any residue from poop, urine, detergent or vinegar can make your diapers smell.   Tumble or line dry.

 

Do not use fabric softener.  It will coat the diapers making them water repellent and reduce the absorbency of the diaper. Be aware that 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.  This will cause the fabric's fibers to break down.

 

Do not use diaper rash creams without using a protective liner between your baby's skin and the diaper.  Creams will leave a waxy residue on the fabric making them less absorbent, water repellent and may potentially cause leaks.  If you need to use a rash cream, you should use a stay-dry liner or a piece of fleece between your baby's bottom and the diaper to prevent the cream from transferring onto the diapers.

 

Stain removal.  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.

 

Blueberry Simplex Cloth Diaper 

 

Before using the diapers:  wash and dry your diaper once in warm water (up to 140F) with detergent prior to first use.  This causes the fibers to shrink, fluff up and become more absorbent.  

If you bought several diapers, you may want to pre-wash one first as we can only refund on unused/unwashed products.

 

General Wash & Care: 

Wash your diapers in warm water on regular cycle.  Follow the recommended amount of detergent as stated on the soap's packaging based on your load size.  Too much will leave residue causing your diapers to possibly stink, leak, or leave baby with a rash.  Too little will not leave your diapers clean and cause it to stink and/or leave baby with a rash.  

An additional rinse can be used for particularly soiled loads. Make sure that your diapers are rinsed clean. Any residue from poop, urine, or detergent can make your diapers smell.  Tumble dry on warm or line dry.

 

Do not use fabric softener.  It will coat the diapers making them water repellent and reduce the absorbency of the diaper. Be aware that 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.  This will cause the fabric's fibers to break down.  It will also cause the waterproof layer of the diaper to de-laminate. Do not use baking soda or vinegar in your wash. These are unnecessary and may cause problems in your diapers.

 

Do not stretch the diaper while it is still warm.  Allowing the diaper to cool after taking it out of the dryer will extend the life of its elastic.

 

Do not use diaper rash creams without using a protective liner between your baby's skin and the diaper.  Creams will leave a waxy residue on the fabric making them less absorbent, water repellent and may potentially cause leaks.  If you need to use a rash cream, you should use a stay-dry liner or a piece of fleece between your baby's bottom and the diaper to prevent the cream from transferring onto the diapers.

Blueberry Capri Cloth Diaper Cover

 

Before using the diapers:  wash and dry your diaper cover in warm water (up to 140F) prior to first use.  



 

General Wash & Care: Keep your wet and dirty diapers in a diaper pail. 

Wash your cloth diapers & inserts in warm water on regular cycle.  Follow the recommended amount of detergent as stated on the soap's packaging based on your load size.  

An additional rinse can be used for particularly soiled loads. Make sure that your diapers are rinsed clean. Any residue from poop, urine, or detergent can make your diapers smell.  Tumble dry on warm or line dry.



 

Do not use bleach.  This includes Oxyclean or other oxygen-based bleach.  These laundry additives will cause the fabric's fibers to break down.  It will also cause the waterproof layer of the diaper to de-laminate. Do not use baking soda or vinegar in your wash. These are unnecessary and may cause problems in your diapers.

 

Blueberry Capri Inserts

 

Before using the diapers:  wash and dry your inserts 2-3 times on hot prior to first use.  This causes the fibers to shrink, fluff up and become more absorbent.  The inserts will shrink and get thicker with the first few washes.  This shrinkage has been allowed for when designing the inserts.  



 

General Wash & Care: Keep your wet and dirty diapers in a diaper pail.  If you've stuffed the inserts inside the diaper, shake out the insert into your pail and throw the diaper in after changing your baby.   

Because natural, organic and 100% cotton fibers tend to wear slightly more than conventional or synthetic fibers, a little extra care can extend the life of the diaper.  
Wash in hot or warm water on regular cycle.  

Follow the recommended amount of detergent as stated on the soap's packaging based on your load size.  Too much or too little may cause your inserts to possibly stink, or leave baby with a rash.
