How do I wash and dry the diapers?
How to loosen or undoing a snap:
To unsnap the diaper, do not attempt to tear the fabric until the snap pop off, use your fingers to easily unsnap each snap.
Things that you cannot do:
Don't use fabric softerner or dry sheet, it will reduce the absorbency of your diaper.
Don't use detergent contains optical brighteners or fluorescent whitening agents.
Don't use bleach, it can ruin the elastic and damage the water-proofing of your outer shells or covers. Also avoid borax, whitening additives, detergents with chlorine bleach, liquid concentrates and stain removers.
Avoid rubbing detergent directly on the outer shell or cover. It will damage the water-proofness of your diapers and void your warranty.
If you choose to use a diaper cream, put a liner between your baby's bottom and the diaper, it will prevent the diaper cream to transfer to the fabric and reduce its absorbency.
How to disinfecting your diapers?
Recommend to do once a month. Sunlight is the best disinfectant.
Method 1: Baking Soda can kill bateria and odor
Hand Washing: Use a basin of hot water (95 degree F, 35 degree C), add a little bit of baking soda, add diapers in the hot baking soda water, allow to soak until the water has cooled, line dry under sunlight.

Vinegar helps neutralize the urine in diapers, equalizes PH balace. Vinegar helps break down soap residue or film build up. It is also a natural fabric softener, we recommend to use not more than 1/4 cup of White Vineger in the rinse cycle.
Why do diapers leak and how do I prevent it?
Cloth diapers will always be more prone to leaks than disposables as they do not contain dangerous liquid-solidifying chemicals. There are lots of reasons for leaking and many solutions to help.
Leaking is often a result of repelling, it is because of the residue of manufacturing process, build up from detergent, ointments, soap or hard water that can build up on the diapers to make it less absorbent to cause leaking. We recommend you to do the stripping of diapers. First run a cold rinse with no detergent, run a warm/hot cycle (little detergent if necessary but no bleach). Run another cold rinse cycle. Continue washing on warm/hot and rinsing on cold until all the suds run clear
Is the washing and drying of diapers difficult and time consuming?
It is neither difficult nor time consuming. Washing and drying will give you your first cloth diapering experience hassle free, just remove the inserts from the outer shell to rinse off the soil before washing. We recommend using natural cleaning agent such as baking soda, lemon juice or vinegar to eliminate odor or stains. Washing and drying time is quicker than normal diapers. Please read our FAQ for more washing instructions.
Diaper Rash and Yeast Infection
How do I prevent or treat diaper rash?
Diaper rash is one of the issues that you will have to deal with as a new parent, especially during warmer months. It is usually caused by skin irritation from prolonged contact with heat and moisture. To treat diaper rash you need to know what is causing the rash and how what remedies your baby will respond best to.
Diaper rash usually causes mild redness and scaling where the diaper touches your baby's skin. In worst cases, the rash can cause pimples, blisters and other sores. If your baby's rash gets infected, the rash may be bright red and the skin may be swollen. Small red patches or spots may spread beyond the main part of the rash, even outside the diaper area.
The key to preventing and treating diaper rash is to keep your baby's diaper area clean, cool and dry.
Change your baby's diaper often, and let him or her go without a diaper when possible to let the air dry his or her skin.
Try placing your baby on an open cloth diaper during nap time. Check the diaper shortly after your baby falls asleep and replace it if it's wet. Babies often urinate right after falling asleep.
Homeopathic Remedies: Many moms have been able to find simple cures for common problems that they face as a parent, and this includes diaper rash. For example, breast milk can be used to treat diaper rash. Simply express some milk and apply it to the rash. An egg white wash has also been used as a homeopathic remedy for diaper rash. Other homeopathic remedies that have been recommended by mothers around the world include: tea bags, lard, fresh air, oatmeal paste, bag balm, and even milk of magnesia.
