Quick guide for caring and prolonging the life of your Ecopipo adjustable cloth nappies

We are right in the middle of the European Week for Waste Reduction and there is no doubt that cloth nappies are an alternative to reduce the waste we produce, the matter how many arguments in pro of disposables can be put on the debate table, more than ever, single use  products have starting to show  their true colours, in terms of the damage that they can cause to the environment and to the economy, as we, the tax payers must contribute to the landfill tax.

However cloth nappies, like any other cloth, require the specific care to prolong their usability span so they can accomplish their mission of helping to reduce waste to landfills.

We have produced a comprehensive guide to washing and caring for your Ecopipo cloth nappies and if you want to check it just follow this link here,  what I intend in this short article is to highlight some of our recommendations.

This week I would like to talk about our really absorbent adjustable night nappies, this super soft nappies are insanely thirsty, and can be used for 12 hours throughout the night, however this means that the following morning the nappy will be super heavy as it is full of pee and  odours (normal for any night nappy). Our two recommendations for this nappies are:

  1. Preferable rinse them (machine or by hand whatever you prefer)  in the morning to reduce the amount of pee and therefore ammonia, then  remove the excess liquid (quick fast spin) and dry pile them.
  2. Wash them in no more that 48 hours,

The problem of not doing these two recommendations is that when the ammonia combines with O2 works as a caustic agent and literally will burn your bamboo nappies.

On the other hand if you follow these recommendations your nappies will last much longer and they would reduce any waste you could have produced with disposables.
