  • A guide to washing your cloth nappies

    For best results chuck the whole lot in the machine, put a small dose of powder in the drawer and do a quick wash on cold. This will rinse the wee out of the nappies. if you haven't pulled your inserts out yet, now is probably a good time to do it. 

    Once that’s finished, put a full dose of powder for a heavily soiled load into the drawer, read the instructions on your detergent, you’ll be surprised just how much you are supposed to use. Wash at 40 degrees on your longest wash. If you have any options for extra water – press it. You want to make sure there are no suds left once you’ve finished, this may occassionally mean there's a need for an extra cold rinse at the end.

    How many nappies do I need?

    Well, if you’re going to have one baby in cloth full time, you will probably need around 24 nappies. This is based on getting through six a day, washing every other day, and allowing for drying time. How often you change will depend on your child, their age and how many Fruit Shoots they just drank. It will all make a difference.
