Prepping Your New Diapers
New diapers need to be “prepped” before you use them. This will prepare fibers
for proper absorption. Prep varies depending on the material they are made
NATURAL FIBERS SHOULD BE PREPPED ONLY WITH
OTHER NATURAL FIBERS! Natural fibers include organic cotton, hemp, and
bamboo. Do not prep microfiber with natural fibers. The oils released
from natural fibers(specifically in cotton and hemp) will coat microfiber causing it to repel rather than
absorb. Once all items have been prepped, they can be washed together.
Prepping Lalabye Baby Diapers (covers
only): simply wash once with a small amount of detergent in hot wash cycle
(water temperature not to exceed 120 degrees) and hang to dry or tumble dry low.
Prepping Lalabye Baby Bamboo Inserts:
wash on hot 4 times prior to first use (water temperature not to exceed 120
degrees). Use a small amount of detergent in the first and second wash. Third
and fourth washes do not require detergent. Tumble dry on low or medium or hang
our bamboo inserts are made of thirsty material(terry). Drying time
will be longer than synthetic fibers. Trust us when we say the luxury of bamboo
is worth the wait!
***Bamboo fibers work in
such a way that diaper absorbency will actually increase with each wash until
they’ve had approximately 10 washes.
