Care & Warranty

Ella's House Care Guide

  • Nappies can be washed at 60 degrees. You can tumble dry occasionally on a low heat to soften the fabric if necessary.
  • Wraps can be washed at 40 degrees. Air dry where possible, do not tumble dry or dry on radiators.
  • Rinse nappies in cold water without detergent, then add clothes and detergent and wash as usual.
  • Don't overfill the washing machine, use at max 2/3 capacity. Modern washing machines use very little water for efficiency but this isn't so good for soiled nappies; if this becomes a problem select a cycle with extra water.
  • Don't use any bleaching agents, potassium, fabric softener or products containing enzymes.
  • Polyester fleece can pill (bobble) and this depends on the washing and drying. For products with polyester fleece don't use soap as it can decrease absorbency.

Full Ella's House Washing Instructions can be found on the manufacturer's website here.

Ella's House Warranty

Ella's House warranty is available for a period of 12 months to the original purchaser from date of purchase. The warranty covers:

  • Fabric faults and workmanship
  • Snaps
  • Stitching
  • Zips
  • Elastics

Ella's House Warranty does not cover:

  • Shrinkage in natural fibres (organic hemp/organic cotton will shrink 5-7% with washing)
  • Damage caused to products by:
    • Using harsh stain removers, biological detergent or bleach, softener
    • Vinegar or bicarbonate of soda
    • Boil washing
    • Continually tumble drying on a warm or hot heat
    • Accidental damage to wraps and other PUL products: PUL delamination from high temperate washing, excessive sun damage through drying, tumble drying
    • Alterations such as dyeing, stitching, cutting, removing components (including the care label)
    • Excessive wear and tear
    • Snags
    • Fading
    • Pilling

Please note: using stain remover and excessive laundering affects fabric (it can go bald), can destroy elastic, reduce lifespan and will render your guarantee void. The nappies are there to catch waste and they may become stained over time; this is to be expected and is not a fault.

Ella's House's decision on any warranty claim is final. Full details can be found on their site here.

Very slim and good absorption and size

 
 

Perfect!
Rating:
04 January 2023  | 

I bought these to add extra absorbancy to disposable nappies at night-time. They work perfectly and I've had very few leakages since (those we did have were due to wonky nappies). Much improved design since the last time I bought these back in 2019/2020. Really pleased. They seem expensive but are well worth it for a good night's sleep!

Thin yet absorbant
Rating:
02 November 2022  | 

These boosters were recommended after completing the questionnaire and I can see why. They are very absorbant, and much thinner than the mother ease Sandy's stay dry boosters, (which I initally tried to avoid having to use a fleece liner) so they don't bulk out the nappy anywhere near as much making them so much better for folding in half to add extra absorbabcy at the front of the nappy for my little boy. Over night I now use 2 of these boosters, one folded in half at the front, with a tots bots bamboozle, or a bumble and a mother ease airflow wrap, and manage 12 hours without a leak.

Absorbent but stiff
Rating:
02 November 2022  | 

These boosters add absorbency but they are a bit stiff for my 12 week old baby, I feel like they really push his legs apart and restrict him from straightening his legs. I'd use something softer for little ones

Fab service
Rating:
05 October 2022  | 

We have been having trouble with nappy leakage (we use disposables), which was waking our little boy (5months old) up in the night. Anyone with a baby knows that sleep is gold dust, and I was looking at a very expensive nappy which was reviewed as being a very good absorbent night nappy, and I contacted The Nappy Lady as I had some questions about it. After explaining the situation, this product was suggested instead. Given the bargain price of this product, we saved far more money going for this than the other product. This has also helped a bit with the overnight leakage as well, although the initial usage was a bit hit and miss with the learning curve of how best to position it/fold it inside the disposable nappy. We used the click and collect service, which was extremely straight forward, and I met friendly and efficient staff who found my order straight away. Really pleased, thank you!

Just the boost we needed!
Rating:
04 September 2022  | 

Perfect booster for pocket nappies when used with a faster absorbent booster such as cotton or microfibre. They are very slim, which was an initial concern.

This booster catches the leaks and enables my 4 month old to stay dry for up to 4 hours, unlike in disposables when he leaks through them!

Definitely worth purchasing when looking for a thin super absorbent booster for your reusable nappies.

Excellent for night time or travelling
Rating:
02 May 2022  | 

I use these at night time in addition to my Bamboozle Stretch nappies. I usually fold one in half and pop it in the front of my baby boy's nappy, or between the nappy and the wrap. They're not super thick, so they don't add too much bulk but they definitely help to absorb more pee overnight or while travelling. They wash and dry really well every time - either in the tumble dryer or on the line (they do take a long time to dry on the line though). I'm glad that I bought a few of these as part of my original nappy setup. If I hadn't bought them to begin with, I'd have definitely ended up buying some further down the line as my baby started to do bigger pees!

These are a nice booster. Lovely shape & soft feel. I’m not as keen using these over night as other hemp boosters as I don’t find they absorb as much for my wetter but we’ve never had any leaks.

Good back up for heavy wetters
Rating:
23 March 2022  | 

Bought this for our (then) two month old who is a heavy wetter. It's a large pad that fits best inside a Terry nappy. Can also squeeze into a Little Lamb shaped nappy and as a single pad inside Mother-ease Wizard nappies. Doesn't work well in anything bulkier as it is a very long and thick booster pad.

4/5 stars simply as if doesn't stay soft and fat after careful washing/drying. The hemp feels rough to touch (we are in a hard water area).We use a fleece liner between the booster and baby's skin, to prevent chafing.

Find the shape of these works really well for my little boy when folded to give extra absorbency at the front for night time and they wash and dry well. I have tried a few different boosters as I am just starting out with cloth nappies and will be back to buy more of these - another great TNL recommendation!

Good Absorbent boosters
Rating:
14 November 2021  | 

I do love these boosters, they are super absorbent but can feel rough to the touch after a few uses ( I would recommended placing a fleece liner on top for comfort). I mainly use them at night with my totsbots bamboozle stretch nappies, which allows my daughter to sleep comfortably for up to 12 hours close. A downfall for these boosters is they take a very long time to dry (two to three days on my airier), but this can only be expected.

I’m using these boosters with my newborn (she is now 8 weeks) at night. She has very wet nappies and can sleep around 6 hours straight so I use these as a precaution. They take a while to fully dry after being washed but that just shows how absorbent they are.

These have stopped all the leaks we were having with our peenut pads. We were struggling with multiple leaks daily so I used the Nappy Lady advice service The advisor was very thorough and helpful.

They are nice and slim for boosting and do a great job without making the nappy bulky. The only reason I have taken a star off is that they tend to dry quite hard. To be fair, my baby doesn't seem bothered and I use a fleece liner on top anyway.

Really good booster, especially as it can be used on top of pads, not just inside a fitted nappy.

I will admit I was on the fence about whether these were worth the cost, as I have a large stash of various other boosters. Well. They are. They are slim, soft, don't curl around the edges (!!!) and even fit into my newborn sized nappies. I will be buying more of these.

These have been excellent for my LO, who is a heavy wetter and tends to flood. I fold in half and place at the front of the pocket under a bamboo booster and this will last 3-4 hours. These need quite a bit of washing to reach absorbency and need a good rub together after washing to soften them up but are so thin and effective!

My little one sleeps from 9.30pm until 8am and the only reason I'd wake him in the night would be to change his nappy, which seemed to me a bit insane. Enter the Bum Booster!
I put it on a Little Lamb bamboo or Sandy's nappy with a bamboo booster over the Bum Booster (since many have commented how slowly it absorbs and then can cause leaks).
This makes the nappy last all night. With the right covers there has been no leak whatsoever.
I'm not sure if this is recommended but it certainly helps all of us sleep more soundly.
The Bum Booster is a wonderful addition and really can get soaked. 5*

Really impressed with this booster. I have a few second hand hemp ones which I like so thought we’d try this one. It is great in every way. Super absorbent, stays soft with washing and fits really well due to its shape, even when using with my 4 week old baby. Will add more to our collection in time.

Ordered these to boost my bamboozle nighttime nappies. They are super absorbent for my 6 month heavy wetter. They go stiff once dry but that doesn’t matter as they aren’t next to baby’s skin and soon loosen once they are wet with wee! Look great quality so I’ll expect them to last well.

Since reaching their full absorbancy we have not had one single night leak with these boosters. We fold in half and place at the front for our heavy wetting boy. They have shrunk in the wash as with all hemp, but they hold their shape well and dry more quickly than our bamboo boosters. Have bought more as we love them so much.

Great booster, very absorbent and has enabled us to do cloth overnight. I use it with a Bamboozle, Bambinex triple booster and fleece liner inside, and then this hemp booster between nappy and a motherease rikki/airflow wrap. Works! Dries pretty quickly as well, dry in 1 day if sunny, 2 days if not. I got 3 boosters and that just about gets us through, washing every other day. Could do with 1 more to be honest!

Response:

so sorry to hear you've not got on well with these boosters. Being hemp they won't reach their maximum absorbency until 10 washes. Hemp contains lots of natural oils in them, as this washes out they become more absorbent and not as soft.
