5 ways to prolong the life of your nappies

Keep it simple and just stick to a half measure of non bio powder in your wash with nothing else added. An eco-egg or soapnuts are also fabulous for washing nappies.


HeatDon’t expose your nappies to direct heat, this can damage PUL and also natural fibres such as bamboo. Heat can also reduce the life of your elastics so never stuff nappies whilst they are still warm or you may find your pockets get saggy!


Dry naturallyNappies will always last you longer if you line dry them naturally. The sun is a well known and very powerful stain remover and also the most powerful anti bacterial you will find (and it’s free!)


Avoid CreamsThe traditional nappy rash creams are a no-no where cloth nappies are concerned as they can coat your nappies making them repel liquid.  There are plenty of nappy creams available that are cloth safe.  Breast milk is one of the greatest healers.


5If you want to make sure your nappies last through to not just potty training but onto more children then we would recommend using a liner. There are plenty available, both reusable and disposable.  These will help to keep your nappies stain free and pristine ready for the next baba to grace them.
