Cloth Nappy Tree gives you a free, unbiased and privacy rich place to discuss and recycle your cloth nappies. Save time, money and our planet by inspiring and helping others.
When you are ready to wash your nappies, remove the mesh bag with all the soiled nappies inside and place in the washing machine with mesh bag open (so that all the nappies tumble out in the wash). Different manufacturers’ recommend you wash at certain temperatures (mainly for environmental reasons), however nappies are designed to withstand a 60° wash to ensure your nappies are sanitized (i.e. kill of any microbes that may be lurking there). It is not necessary to sterilize your nappies at this temperature every wash and you can adequately wash at 40° most of the time if you prefer. However you should wash at 60° when; your baby has repeated nappy rash; your baby is unwell; you are using eco balls. If you do not have a full load you can wash nappies with other colourfast clothes. If you have Velcro fastenings, turn the nappies or wraps inside out and shut the Velcro to stop the Velcro catching on other materials in the wash.
