This wash routine is similar to full time use however you may have to add other laundry items to bulk up your main wash. Good washing relies on agitation so it is better to have a full load to ensure a great clean.
Items to bulk loading can include:
- Burp cloths and reusable wipes
- Baby clothes
- Flannels and tea towels
- Be mindful of colour run
Step 1 - Dry pail
Store soiled nappies in dry pail until prewash. (Max. 1-2 days).
Step 2 - Prewash
Give any heavily soiled nappies a quick scrub, Sard soap is great for this. Prewash on a 30 - 60min cycle at 40° to 60°.
Store prewashed nappies in dry pail until ready to mainwash, no need to dry (max 2-3 days).
Step 3 - Main wash
Pop all the prewashed nappies from the last couple of days into the washing machine. Ensure the washing machine is fully loaded, add items no bigger than a hand towel to bulk up the loading.
Use the full recommended dose of mainstream detergent.
Choose a long cycle with good agitation such as a normal or cotton cycle approx. 2.5 - 3 hours long between 40° - 60°.
Step 3 - Dry
Line dry. Inserts can be tumble dried on low.
