To wash your nappies, we recommend dry-pailing: simply remove any solids and place the nappy into a bucket or wetbag until you have enough for a load. You can rinse your nappies, then place wet in the nappy bucket if you prefer.
There is no need to soak or use bleach/sanitising products, as they can irritate sensitive skins and reduce the life of the elastic in your nappies. We recommend you do a cold water rinse cycle first, then a normal cold, warm or hot cycle with half the recommended amount of detergent and no fabric softener (be careful of detergents containing fabric softener as they can reduce absorbency). We also recommend using a low enzyme and Low PH washing powder.
Should you have any stains remaining after washing, leave the nappy in the sun for a short time and the stains will be naturally bleached by the sun.
Nappies can be dried in the drier or on the line, hanging your nappies over a drying rack will help prolong the life of the elastic, please do not hang nappies with the elastic stretched out. It is not recommended to leave the snap in boosters attached for washing/drying as there is the potential for snaps to rip out and elastic to deteriorate quicker than normal due to extra stretching from the weight of the boosters. Also, please do not hang the bitti d’lish with sewn in boosters by the flap booster, as this will put extra stress on the seam.
We recommended to prewash your new nappies at least once prior to use, washing coloured shells separately for the first wash on cold. You will find boosters will gain maximum absorbency after 5-10 washes
You may wish to do an occasional strip wash to move detergent residue, which can sometimes cause build up and reduce the performance of your nappies. To do this, wash your nappies on hot, with 1/4 cup of dishwashing detergent (eg Dawn), then continue to rinse until there are no more bubbles.
All itti bitti purchases are covered by a 6 month workmanship guarantee, so in the unlikely event you have a problem with your nappies, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our Customer Care team. You will need your receipt (email copy is OK) and the guarantee is limited to the original owner.
