Washing & Care Instructions
Snap-EZ ™ Products are all easy to care for.
General Washing Instructions
Wash All Products Separately from any Hemp products!
(Until after the first 8 wash/dry cycles)
DO: Prewash all diapers and trainers in a hot wash/cold rinse (adding boiling water might be necessary if your hot
water heater is set at less than 130 degrees F) with 1 tsp dishwashing detergent to remove the manufacturing
residue so the fabrics can do the job they are supposed to do!
Regular Washing/Drying Recommendations:
Soiled items: Set your washing machine for a presoak (first remove solid waist and flush), use a hot wash/cold or warm rinse, add a minimal amount of detergent to the wash cycle, vinegar to rinse if desired, and an extra rinse to be sure to get out all the vinegar.
DO NOT: use both baking soda and vinegar together or for every wash as this can cause an odor problem when these two are combined!
DO NOT: Use any Fabric Softener on products with microfleece. ***IT WILL RUIN THE FLEECE***
Follow this with a quick hot wash cycle with no detergent to prevent build up.
Dry them in a dryer on high at least once (this helps seal the seams in the PUL), and after that high or medium heat is ok, or you can line dry them.
*I do recommend drying products that have PUL on high once a month to keep them sealed.
If you wash your inserts and diapers together, I recommend removing the Diapers/Briefs after the first run and then leave the inserts in for a little longer as they take longer than the pockets do to dry. This will help reduce the wear and tear on your diapers and training pant
Suggestions: Put the soiled diapers (after removing solids) in the washing machine for a rinse only cycle
and then add the rest of the diapers/briefs. This is recommended to prevent odors from developing.
Stains? (this is rare), line dry them in the sun as it does a good job of removing stains without any harsh chemicals.
Special Briefs & AIO Training Pants Instructions
*Do not wash the trainers/briefs with Velcro products!!*
The Velcro will snag and ruin the Fold Over Elastic!
1) These will shrink about 2 inches in the waist and 1 1/2 inches in the thigh,
so prewash (wash in Hot, dry on High) these at least twice before you judge the fit!
I recommend washing just one with your white load to check the fit before you wash your entire order.
2) AIO Training pants (child/youth) must be prewashed as stated above to prep the inner fabric to absorb. If you do not pre-wash the inside fabric will repel liquid and you will have a leaky mess.
Snap-EZ ® Inserts
For best results, please follow the appropriate instructions below:
For Bamboo/Hemp Inserts:
First Time Prepping
Boil the inserts in a large pan of water, with 1 tsp dishwashing detergent added, for 20 minutes and then allow to cool slightly. Pour off excess water and dump the inserts into you washing machine. Then wash them in HOT water with 1/2 the normal amount of detergent and dry on HIGH for 3 cycles to strip the hemp of it's natural oils and maximize the absorbency.
Regular Washing Instructions (after prepping):
Wash in Hot Water with 1/2 the amount of recommended detergent (per you detergent container), extra rinse recommended. Dry on High.
Snap-EZ ® Wet Bags
*DO NOT wash the Wet Bags with any Velcro products as the Velcro will wreck the stitching
Wet Bags should be prewashed in hot and dried on high to seal the PUL. These can be washed with you diapers.
- Allen's All Natural
Detergents to avoid:
- Arm and Hammer
These have all found to cause build up in diapers that lead to repelling or odor problems!
Detergents that may cause burning for those with sensitive skin:
- Sensi Clean
- Sports Wash
While these soaps are highly recommended for cloth diapers, for some people it can cause burns, so we recommend avoiding them if you have sensitive skin.
If you develop a rash/burns/boils after switching detergents, assume it is the detergent - then strip your diapers and switch detergents asap!
