How to Wash

WASHING DIAPERS

For a Top Loader:

  1. Water Level HIGH
  2. Only add 3/4 washer Full of diapers, too many and they won't get clean1/4 of the recommended amount of Detergent (If the instructions say to use to the 1 line, only go up 1/4 of the way to the 1 line.  It's not the detergent that gets your diapers clean, it's the water.  If you are washing often enough(every 1-3 days), and not using too much detergent(detergent acts like a magnet to bacteria and can cause leaks or rash), your diapers will never get stinky.
  3. Wash on WARM or COLD with detergent (use warm if your detergent has enzymes)
  4. Wash a Second time on HOT, with No Detergent
  5. Dry PODS in dryer on Med, hang dry Shells(for first time, dry Shells in dryer for 20 min or more to seal holes)

 

For an HE Front Loader:
It's very important to make sure there is enough water in the washing machine. So you have to trick the washer into adding as much water as possible.  These settings are for the "LG Front Loader".  Your washer may vary but this is the best combo we have found : 

  1. Fill wetbags up with cold water before adding to washer(this will saturate your diapers and make them heavier to the sensor making the washer add more water.  The more water the better and since you cannot manually adjust for a Frontloader, this is the best solution.)
  2. Wash twice.  1st Load - ADD 1/4 or less of recommended Detergent - Delicate Cycle - extra rinse- prewash - low spin - heavy soil -  WARM or COLD(if your detergent contains enzymes you HAVE TO use warm otherwise they won't activate and clean properly)
  3. 2nd Load - high spin - heavy soil - Permanent Press - HOT - NO Detergent
  4. Dry Pods, and hang dry Shells to prolong life
