I've put together a help video which shows you how to care for and wash your pocket nappies, which covers all our best sellers including Bumgenius, Little Lambs and Charlie Banana. It's a really straight forward process, but if you're unsure of what to do then I hope this video and guide can help point you in the right direction.
Dispose of paper liner (if using) or shake solids into toilet.
Remove insert from pocket before storing both parts.
Always change the outer after each use, don’t just add a new insert and re-use.
Always dry pail pocket nappies – if put to soak they will lose their waterproofing.
On wash day - Run a cold rinse cycle to remove excess soiling and urine.
Wash at 40oC or 60oC if heavier soiling, using a machine no more than 3/4 full and approx half of the recommended amount of detergent (based on the dose for a full load).
Hang to dry. They should not be dried directly on a radiator as this will ruin the outer – you can put the inserts next to a radiator, and outers on a rack close to the radiator, but not directly on it. If you have to tumble dry this must be on the LOW setting.
Once dry store your pocket nappies stuffed with a fresh insert so they are ready to use.
If putting cream on baby’s bottom you must use a paper liner to avoid a greasy residue ending up on the fleece lining of the nappy which is very difficult to remove.
