Strip Washing

We recommend that your avoid strip washing if possible. But if you suspect that your nappies are repelling instead of absorbing the urine caused by build up of oils, from such products like fabric softeners, nappy rash treatments etc then a strip wash may be necessary.

To Strip Wash:

In the laundry tub or bath tub, add a few drops of dish washing detergent to warm water. Never exceed the maximum temperature recommended by the manufactures. Wash and rinse. You may need to rinse the nappies a few times before all the detergent has washed out of the nappies. Once the water runs clear without any suds appearing, put your nappies in the washing machine and wash them as you normally would.

We do recommend using Canesten Hygiene Laundry Rinse if the nappies need to be sanitised.
