How Do I Prep My Inserts?

For the best results, prep all of your new Inserts.
HOW DO I PREP MY NAPPY INSERTS?
Our Bamboo inserts (five layers - three microfibre and two bamboo) also known as Blend Inserts, are inserts that have two types of fabric.
Typically - and in our case, this is bamboo on the outside and microfibre on the inside.
We sell FIVE-layer Bamboo Blend inserts & Five-layer Charcoal Bamboo Blend inserts.
For the best results, pre-prep all of our Nappy Inserts.
The Five layer Bamboo Blends will need to be prepped by following EITHER set of these directions.
- Depending on how many inserts you are prepping, fill your washing machine with the hottest water setting you have, add all of your blend inserts (if you have 3-layer bamboo or any hemp inserts you've purchased elsewhere and need to prep, you can add them too!) and run it through a wash cycle. If your washing machine has an extra rinse/spin cycle, set it for that. You need to rinse/spin on HOT for at least four to five rinse/spin cycles. Dry in the dryer and they are ready to use.
OR TRY THIS:
- Fill your washing machine to it's highest setting full of HOT water. Add a packet of Nappy RLR Laundry Detergent - you can buy it on Ebay from the US. (or 1/2 packet for front loaders) and all inserts you'd like to prep. Soak for 30 minutes, run a full cycle on your washer and then add 2 rinse/spin cycles. Dry in the dryer and they are ready to use.
- Both Bamboo and Hemp will become more absorbent with each use until about the 10th wash, where it reaches it's maximum absorbency.
