Care & Warranty

Tots Bots Care Guide

  • Prewash nappy twice before first use. Nappy will reach full absorency after approximately 10 washes.
  • Wash dark colours separately
  • Wash with non-bio powder or TotsBots Potion
  • 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.
  • Max wash temperature 60 degrees.
  • Ideally line dry or tumble dry on cool.
  • If using a nappy cream always use a nappy liner - ideally a disposable paper liner.

Excessive laundering can destroy elastic, destroy the water repellency, make the fabric go bald, reduce the performance of your nappies, drastically reduce the lifespan and will render your guarantee void.

Effective and smells lovely
22 January 2020  | 

I love the smell of this even though I don't like parma violets sweets! I find you can use quite a small dose and still get an effective clean. I use 15g for around 8-10 nappies plus liners, cheeky wipes, and a few wraps. It gets everything clean without the detergent building up. It leaves just the faintest hint of the parma violet scent.

This product gave my baby a terrible red rash everywhere where her skin had contact with the nappy. I always put my nappies on an additional rinse. Her skin healed very slowly after this. Horrible!

Smells great 😍

Opened it up and it smells great and tackles the odour of nappies brilliant. The beautiful fragrance of the clean nappies last for ages.

Good for environment
04 October 2018  | 

Its good to be able to wash at 30 degrees but product is too expensive for me to use all the time, and I get more stains on the nappies than when I wash at 60. Will be used whenever I am feeling especially guilty about my environmental impact!

Yes it gets rid of newborn poo stains
09 April 2018  | 

It does get rid of poo stains at 40 - not if you put the item in the wash 2 days later than the incident obviously.
It is expensive but you only need to use a small amount in each nappy wash.

Staple in our house - thanks for the good service!
03 February 2018  | 

Have read feedback from other parents that the detergent we use (ecover) isn't so great at washing cloth nappies, so we use the Tots Bots variety (since we are using their all in ones).

The Mint Humbug scent is very nice! It says that the nappies can be washed at 30 degrees, but being a cautious first time Mum, I wash at 50 degrees.

The Nappy Lady really helped us out of a jam by getting these to us sooner than Tots Bots actually could, so pleased with the service X

We got the Parma violet option and it smells gorgeous! We've tried it in 60 degree and 40 degree washes and it has worked great at both temperatures for us.
