Care & Use

Washing diapers isn’t as complicated as it might seem. For your soiled Sweet Pea items, all you need is two wash cycles and they’re ready to be worn again.

Wash 1: Warm water, regular wash cycle, large load setting, line 1 detergent

Wash 2: Hot water, heavy duty cycle, high spin, line 3-4 detergent

Dry in dryer when possible.

Notes: Warm water opens up the fibers and allows gunk to escape. Cold water causes fibers to seize up.

  • Short/quick cycles or a rinse only as the prewash is not adequate.
  • Precise fill options should never be used if manual wash size settings are available; this option won’t use enough water for cloth
  • Never use extra rinses if you have hard water as this will put mineral build up into your fibers
  • Use a capful of Calgon in each wash cycle if your water is harder than 180pp. Borax wear on diapers prematurely
  • Powdered detergent is always better for cloth. Liquid is difficult to rinse out of soft water. Liquid has inadequate softening properties for hard water
  • A detergent must have enzymes and not have sodium cocoate. Enzymes clean the gunk and sodium cocoate coats fibers like a soap
