Wash and Care of Cloth Diaper

Caring for cloth diapers is easy.

  • Machine-washing your diapers before the first use.
  • Pre-wash your diapers with regular clothes for 3-4 times.
  • AVOID using washing powders that contain FABRIC SOFTENER, BLEACH AND ENZYMES
  • Don’t use natural soap products such as pure glycerine soap.
  • Don’t use nappy barrier or balm cream: If you want to use cream because of severe rash, use nappy liners to prevent cream getting onto the fleece. Alternatively you can use natural starch to keep the bum dry.
  • Don’t wash or dry on HOT or HIGH HEAT.
  • You may use laundry bag when using washing machine.
  • Don’t soak diaper in the water – to prolong the elastic lifespan. For diapers with velcro, close any Velcro laundry tabs as you remove diapers from baby before you placed the washing machine.
  • Don’t use Nappikleen, Dynamo, Pureen Kiddiwash, Pureen ABD, Kao Attack, Top Detergent
  • Avoid using liquid detergent cause most contain softener.
  • OK to use: Kao Attack Powder, Charlie’s Soap (powder), Pureen HAD (powder), Pureen HAD (liquid), BabyOrganix Kids Wear Liquid Cleanser, Cosway Kiddiewash, Might Detergent, Fab Powder, Trojan Powder, Kuat Harimau Powder, Cosway Ecomax.
