Reusable Diaper Care Instructions ⋒

So, there is plenty mystery out there with new parents to game of "Reusable Diapers." One big question we get asked all the time here at Wyld Bub is how do you care for Reusables?
Well below we have set out the easiest and best way we have found works for caring for your little ones Reusable Cloth Diapers.

1. Prep Cloth Diapers Before Use

So you’ve got your cloth diapers and related supplies. But before you introduce your baby’s skin to any fabric product (including cloth diapers), it’s a good idea wash the diaper beforehand. “Prep” your cloth diapers by washing them with a scent-free detergent and dry them on a low tumble cycle or on a drying line. You’re ready to start cloth diapering!

2. Dispose of Waste and Cold Rinse

Before throwing a dirty diaper into the wash, make sure to pre-clean it by flushing solid waste and then rinsing the cloth diaper with cold water. For a more convenient option, you may want to invest in a diaper sprayer. A diaper sprayer can be installed on the side of your toilet to make rinsing dirty diapers easier and less messy!

3. Run a Hot Wash Cycle with Detergent

After you rinse off the residue, run a hot wash cycle with laundry detergent.

4. Rinse with Warm or Cold Water

Following the wash cycle, rinse the cloth diaper again to removing any remaining laundry detergent.

5. Dry Cloth Diaper on Low Tumble or on a Drying Line

Dry cloth diapers on the low tumble cycle with medium heat or use a drying line to air dry cloth diapers. Letting Mother Nature do her work!
