Although they can be washed by hand, most families use the washing machine rather than handing over the functionality of someone else’s washing machine. There are some rules you need to follow to properly diaper and avoid problems.

  1. Wash the diapers with a soap-free and enzyme-free surfactant detergent, using about two-thirds the recommended dose. If you use too much it can build up in the fiber groups of the fabric. If you use soap to wash the diaper, there is a chance of lime scale and diaper build-up in the water. Ulrich Detergent is suitable for washing diapers. If the water is too hard or hard, you can use a lactic acid based anti scale in the softener dryer to soften the water.
  2. There is no need to wash diapers in very hot water. You can wash diapers in hot water between 30° and 60°C even if the diaper is very soiled. 60 degrees Celsius is sufficient if the diaper has bad odor or excess germs. Because germs or bacteria cannot survive at 60 degrees Celsius
  3. Never bleach fabrics you should use oils and essences to wash diapers. Because they can damage the fabric, the use of these ingredients can affect the baby’s skin and cause allergies

Can I use it after I purchase them?

When you buy cloth diapers and bring them home, don’t use them right away as the diaper may contain various harmful substances. So before using them, the diapers should be washed well and dried in the sun two to three times. Note that cloth diapers will begin to absorb at their maximum capacity after a minimum of 10 washes. At first, the absorbency of the fabric diaper is low, but it will gradually increase with each wash. We initially think that cloth diapers are less absorbent than disposable diapers but the assumption is wrong.  Because cloth diapers become more absorbent after several washes.

 

How Can I store dirty Diaper?

If clothes and diapers become soiled, they should be put away until they can be washed. Before washing the diapers, combine several diapers and use a bucket or waterproof bag with a lid to store the diapers. But remember that the diaper must remove the stool before storing it. To do this, scrub the diaper with a cloth brush under running water or with a nail brush to remove the stool.

Cloth diapers or absorbents can be stored in a bucket of water and submerged with a nylon mesh to dissolve dirt. This type of manual prewash is not necessary as the washing machine does the job very efficiently. This should only be done when the diapers are very dirty. To do this take a bucket of water and place the absorbents in the water and add bleaching salt. The active oxygen and sodium released by the salt stream upon contact with the water will clean and disinfect the absorbents. Then wash with cold water. In this case, never soak diaper covers or all-in-one diapers as they will be irreparably damaged.

How do I remove stains from fabric? The best way to avoid fabric diaper stains is to prevent them. The diaper becomes very dirty and stained when the child passes stool on the diaper. To eliminate these problems, you can use disposable liners between the diapers to reduce stains on the absorbents.

If the absorbent is stained after washing, it is best to hang it in the sun for a while as UV radiation acts as a natural seed. You can use bleaching salts to remove tar or use a small amount of fluoride but definitely not too much. Can I use Dryer? The best way to dry cloth diapers is to dry them in the sun, but this is not possible due to varying weather conditions and lack of roofs or balconies in many households. Remember to check the level before drying the diaper as the level indicates the temperature at which it can be dried.

But don't leave it in the dryer for too long as the temperature of the dryer can damage the absorbent cores and lose their performance.
