Long Term Storage

There’s a few easy steps to take in preparation for long term storage:

    1. Wash your nappies again in max temp water (not exceeding manufacturers recommendations) without any detergent. This will get rid of any build up or residual left on the nappies.
    2. Dry your nappies. Sun them for a full day and/or put them in the dryer on low heat. You need to make sure they are absolutely dry or mould could form on your beautifully stored nappies.
    3. Put your nappies in a dry storage container or in a vacuum sealed bag. Store the nappies in a cool, dark place. Choose a spot where the temperature stays fairly consistent throughout the year.
    a) Lay your inserts and boosters flat in the box or bag, separately from the nappy shells.
    b) Add a few paper towels in the bag or box so it can wick away any extra moisture that might be present during storage.
    4. Every 4-6 months you should take the nappies out of storage and give them a wash and dry. This will ensure that the elastics stay fresh and don’t turn brittle.
    5. When you’re ready to use the nappies again, take them out of storage and give them a good wash.
