wash & care instructions

Washing of cloth nappies

Your cloth nappy should be pre-washed prior to use. It can take up to 10 washes for bamboo to reach maximum absorbency, however in most cases you should still be fine with one wash. Pre-washing your nappies also ensures you remove any manufacturing grit.

Once soiled roll or scrape solid matter off the cloth nappy straight into the toilet and place nappy into a dry bucket (dry pail). Do not soak. Do not use nappy rash creams unless you use a liner.

When you are ready to place a load into your washing machine, run the cycle on a short rinse. Then simply use your normal detergent and wash in a normal load. Hang to dry.  Water should be no hotter than 40 degrees.

Use a detergent which has no enzymes, bleaches or softening agents. Do not use fabric softener or bleach. Natural UV acts as a wonderful bleaching and sanitising agent.

Cloth Menstrual Pads

Your cloth menstrual pads are very easily cared for. After use, soak in a container of cold water.  Container does not need to be anything fancy, an old icecream container with lid can be used.

Once you are ready to put a wash load on, squeeze excess water out of your cloth menstrual pads and give them another small rinse under running cold water. It's then as simple as throwing your cloth menstrual pads into the washing machine with all your other laundry and wash as per normal cycle.   Water should be no hotter than 40 degrees.

I recommend line drying, but you can tumble dry your cloth menstrual pads on a low/medium setting.

Breast Pads

Reusable cloth breast pads are even easier to care for!  They can be washed with anything, no need to dry pail, no need to soak. Just pop the cloth breast pads in with your normal wash load.  PUL breast pads should be not be washed in water hotter than 40 degrees.  Lay your cloth breast pads flat onto a towel to dry or low tumble dry.  Breast pads should not be left in a hot humid environment as this would promote bacterial growth.   Any wool breast pads should be washed on a wool/delicate cycle with cold water only.  DO not iron or tumble dry.

Cloth Breast Pads

Wet Bags

Wet bags are machine washable with mild detergent.  Wash on warm (no hotter than 40 deg) and hang to dry.


Raw Silk


Any products that contain raw silk ie, liners or tops of breast pads, boosters etc should be washed by hand in lukewarm water with a touch of gentle wool wash.

Raw silk contains a protein called sericin which is a wax like substance produced by the silkworm and gives it  stay-dry properties to help wick moisture away.  Washing by hand will help avoid stripping the raw silk proteins and waxes.
