If your baby has very sensitive skin, use Dri-Pak’s Liquid Soap and a scoop of Soda Crystals in place of detergent.
Liquid Soap contains only pure soap and is fragrance-free so it won’t irritate the skin.
Never use fabric softener on the reusable nappies. Dri-Pak’s expert said: “Fabric softener leaves a residue on the surface of the fabric which affects absorbency and can stop the nappies working properly.”
Instead, it is recommended you use White Vinegar to ensure no nasty residue is left on the fabric of the nappies.
Dri-Pak’s expert added: “To prevent the nappies from losing absorbency, an occasional hot wash with a White Vinegar rinse will eliminate any soap build-up on the nappies.”
