These gorgeous water-repellent fleece covers are the perfect alternative to wool or PUL nappy covers for use over your fitted nappies, prefolds & flats. Or pop over your modern cloth nappies for added leak protection!

They are very easy to use, no waterproofing treatment required (i.e. no lanolin). They can be washed in your regular laundry at any temperature without shrinking or delaminating!

All lovingly handmade by a talented Newcastle based WAHM (work at home maker). We can customise to order - heavy wetter, high rise etc anything you need! Lots of cute fabrics are available so please feel free to contact us for a custom spot with this wonderful WAHM.

Team with any of our absorbent newborn cloth nappy products for a complete cloth nappy solution!

***Please note that print (pattern & colour) selection is not available on the hire stash at this point***

***Do not add fleece covers in with a sanitise as manufacturer's advise against using bleach. Fleece covers are like normal clothes and do not require a strip or sanitise as the covers are not multi-layered and do not contain natural fibre***

Your wash | dry routine is integral to maintaining the lifespan of your nappies and helps to keep your nappies in tip top condition.

Below is a generic outline only and we recommend that you follow the wash instructions specified by each brand and read all about what NOT to use on your cloth nappies!  

Washing your new nappies? Read what to do here.

* Note: Some brands recommend rinsing all nappies as soon as they come off to help prevent the build-up of ammonia smell  

* Night nappies tend to be the smelliest due to the higher concentration and quantity of urine they withhold. A thorough hand-rinse in hot water with detergent, in the morning, is recommended *(but here at TCS we do our daily prewash as soon as the morning nappies come off to avoid this step) *

Pre-treat stains if required. Spray or soak in stain remover (Vanish/ Sard or equivalent). More about stain removers can be found here.

*Removes bulk of soiling here to allow the main wash to be done in clean water. 

*Most brands recommend a daily pre-wash on the nappies used within the last 24hrs

*A full load is recommended for the best agitation and clean. Pad out the load with tea towels or clothing if required.

*Most brands recommend a main wash every other day 

*A full load is recommended for the best agitation and clean. Pad out the load with tea towels or clothing if required.

* If you follow a good wash routine and wash at the correct temperatures, then barrier creams will wash out! More details here.

Detergent: Most of our stocked brands recommend a good quality main stream detergent. Here at TCS we alternate between OMO Ultimate, OMO Sensitive & Biozet Attack Regular Laundry Liquids.....whatever happens to be on sale at the time! Woolworths and Coles regularly offer half price sales on these brands so keep your eye out for the sales. Prefer a more natural solution? Then look no further than Kin Kin Eco Laundry liquid which is available here.

Spin cycles: Do not spin over 800rpm
Hang indoors if there is no shade available. This will prolong the integrity & quality of your PUL (Waterproof lining). Hanging covers |shells horizontally length wise across the line can minimise elastics stretching
Note that the lifespan of your nappy may be reduced with extensive exposure to the dryer. If possible use the dryer for inserts, prefolds and fitteds only and line dry the covers/ shells. A dryer can be used on the lowest setting for covers/ shells IF recommended by the manufacturer. Wait until the covers/ shells are cold before stretching elastics
