PRODUCT INFORMATION

Wanting to cloth right from the beginning but you don't want to spend too much money on a newborn stash? Then a combination of flats, prefolds and fitteds may be the option for you.....why?

* Flats & prefolds are so versatile, fold them to suit bub's body shape for a more custom fit (can use them for multiple bubs's even if their body shape is different)

* use them as trifolds or boosters inside your one size fits most (OSFM) covers once bub outgrows the newborn stage

* use in combination with wipe-down covers that allow covers to be re-used between changes which reduces the quantity of covers required

* quick dry times means faster turn around between wash cycles which again reduces the quantity required for your stash

With 6 different nappy combinations, this package is a simple enough beginner stash for cloth newbies while allowing you to sample a diverse range of options that are available. 

Hire periods are 3 weeks. Please see our How it works page for details.

WASHING GUIDELINE

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
