Care & Warranty

Thirsties Care Guide

  • Wash all nappies once before use. Prewash any hemp products separately for at least 3 times. The hemp will reach full absorbency after approximately 8 washes.
  • Wash dark colours separately
  • Wash with non-bio powder
  • No harsh stain removers or bleach. They may cause irritation and can damage the waterproof membrane
  • Don't use pastes of nappy powder directly applied to nappies as this is too concentrated.
  • No fabric softeners. They will reduce absorbency.
  • Rinse nappies prior to main wash. Or Prewash (small amount of detergent optional) but this will subject the nappies to more 'wear and tear'
  • Main wash with max wash temperature 60 degrees.
  • Line dry. Can be tumble dried on low, but ideally no more than once a month to prevent premature deterioration to the nappy.
  • If using a nappy cream always use a nappy liner - ideally a disposable paper liner.

Super Absorbant
01 February 2023  | 

We use these to boost night nappies, I bought a couple second hand and my daughter slept through the night! So I got more, they take a couple of days drying indoors so B I have 8 on a rotation using two a night.

Fantastic boosters!
07 March 2022  | 

I wanted to get some hemp boosters to reduce the leaks my toddler's been getting. These are super absorbent and still quite slim and so far, no more leaks. So I'll be buying a few more. The small size are plenty big enough for my biggish 2 year old. Anything bigger would have to be folded.

absorbant and soft

I needed to boost my night time nappies more, as even triple layer bamboo in a big bamboozle nappy, was not enough. These are big and well worth the price.

Very 'thirsty' and stay lovely and soft
26 May 2019  | 

I deliberated for a long time about which hemp boosters to go for and decided to go for these as they seemed good value and I am so glad I did. They took a few washes to get up to full absorbency but now they are they are very absorbent and even with our hard water they have stayed soft (unlike other hemp boosters we have). I ordered the large and the small and have found the small are better for us on the smallest rise but expect the large will work well when we go up a rise.
