Care & Use
Before First Use/Prep Your Diapers
* Wash 5 times in hot water (no detergent) with a cold rinse
* Tumble dry medium
This will shrink diapers to appropriate size and "sponge" up fabric for maximum absorbency. Diapers will reach their fullest absorbency after 10 washes, but you may begin use after 5 washes.
The number one thing to remember when caring for your diapers is they are just another load! There is no magical solution that you should need and no crazy tricks.

Tips & Tricks
* Hot wash should not be above 120°F.
* Do not use the sanitize cycle.
* Do not store in a wet pail. Doing so will void your warranty.
* Do not soak diapers in water, detergents or additives. It can damage the TPU and elastic of your diapers.
* Wait to stuff diapers until completely cooled from dryer. Stuffing while warm will prematurely wear out elastics.
* Avoid using diaper creams. They may waterproof your diapers and lead to smells and leaks.
* If you absolutely must use a cream, please use a reusable liner to protect your diapers.
