* Before the first use of your new diaper and inserts, wash them in warm water (not to exceed 90°F / 32°C).

* Spray or rinse all solid waste off your diaper before storing it in your diaper pail.

* Perform a cold rinse/soak of your diapers and inserts before running a regular wash cycle to remove all remaining waste.

* If using regular laundry detergent, wash diapers and inserts in warm water (90°F / 32°C) using 1/3 of the manufacturer recommended amount of laundry detergent to prevent possible water-repellency.

* You may wish to perform an extra rinse cycle to remove excess laundry detergent from your diapers and inserts. This will help to prevent skin irritation and ammonia buildup from occurring.

* Always dry diapers on low heat or hang-dry (preferred).
