DO NOT use any diaper balms or laundry detergents that contain petroleum or plant oils. These ingredients will repel water and negatively impact absorbency. Visit our Laundry Info Page for more information.
DO NOT wash your Hybrid Shells after every use. When changing to a fresh diaper, first remove used soaker pad, then inspect Shell for soiling. Due to innovative design, Shells may often be worn multiple times before washing.
DO NOT use a complicated wash routine. Generally all that is needed is to wash on warm with the recommended amount of detergent. An extra rinse cycle is also recommended. Think twice (maybe even call us!) before using any extreme wash routine that you read about online or elsewhere.
DO NOT use whiteners, bleach, vinegar, and fabric softeners. These are NOT your diaper’s friend and will void product warranties.
DO NOT “soak” your diapers prior to washing, and don’t let them sit in a closed, dark, warm pail for days before washing. These environments are prime breeding grounds for fungi and bacteria and will shorten the life of your diapers. Soiled diapers should be washed every 2-3 days.
