More uses than you can imagine

These mats are useful in so many ways, not just as a change mat but also burp cloth, play mat, seat pad and in an emergency baby wrap... our mats are now in use for our second Bub and still look as good as when I purchased them.

Really handy!

I LOVE this mat! It takes up next to no room and you can use it as anything if the need arises. I've used it as a nursing over, a spew rag, a change mat, on the car seat after a poosplosion, a rug, a cloth... After 2 years it's still in perfect condition. Seriously an essential in your Mummy arsenal.

Cute and functional

I absolutely love this mat! Not only are there so many cute patterns to choose from, but it’s so velvety soft. I used it when my son was just a bub, as a change mat and now that he is potty training, I use it under his potty and switch it out everyday! I’ve even used it as a car seat protector after driving home in wet togs! Love the anytime, anywhere!

Super handy

Beautiful soft, smooth and super versatile change/play/nappy free time mat. Slightly larger than other change mats I've tried as well. Very keen to add a couple more to our collection.

Washing

Prewash

Before using your new Easy nappies by bambooty please prewash 3 times to remove any manufacturing residues and to ensure absorbency. It is not necessary to dry the nappies in between washes. Alternatively soaking the nappies in water overnight has a similar if not better result for building up the absorbency in the nappies. Keep in mind that bamboo takes up to 8 washes to maximise its absorbency. We do not suggest that all 8 need be done prior to using the nappies, however please keep this in mind. 

After use

Keep nappies in a dry lidded nappy bucket until a load for washing has accumulated. There is no need for dangerous buckets of water full of chemicals around the house.

Wet nappies can be placed straight in the dry bucket although saturating them with a Little Squirt (aka toilet spray/bidet) or under the tap will increase the longevity of your nappies as wee is very acidic and will wear the fabrics and elastic faster.*

Soiled nappies are very similar. Simply dispose of your nappy liner, tip rolling poos straight into the loo or rinse off the poo by using a Little Squirt (aka toilet spray/bidet) or tap water, and saturate before placing in your lidded nappy bucket.

Washing

Washing is easy.

  • Use half the recommended strength powder detergent
  • Do not use bleach, fabric softeners, or vinegar
  • Do not use products containing enzymes
  • Pre-rinse, particularly soiled nappies
  • Suede cloth is stain resistant and any residing stains are best treated by the sun only
  • Flushable liners may be washed and reused if not soiled. Flushable liners are not recommended for septic tanks
  • Tip – baking soda increases pH, neutralises odours and breaks down residues which may be causing leaks and unwanted smells. Use it in the wash, in the dry nappy bucket, or as a separate wash for nappies with a residual stink, if needs be.

Drying

The sun is the best, however if drying nappies in the sun is not possible gas or electric dryers can be used. Gas dryers are faster and cost less to run.

Notes and Pointers

Bambooty nappies are designed to be used in a rotation of 18-24 nappies lasting you roughly 3 days. Therefore we are presuming you are washing your nappies every 1-2 days so that of course they will be dry and ready to use again on day 4.

* Varying wee concentration will have different effects on the nappies. As wee is highly acidic it may wear out the natural fabrics faster than you or I may like. This is what we call the worst case scenario in terms of the nappy's lifespan. As described above, saturating the nappies will increase the longevity of the nappies, by diluting the wee until they are washed.

If this worst case scenario happens to you, please do not worry, all you need to do is add more absorbency to have a fully functioning nappy again. This can be done by adding in our small bamboo boosters or our snap in EOS night boosters or of course it is possible to simply stich in more bamboo fabric onto the absorbency flaps where they have worn thin. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. customerservice@bambooty.com.au or service@bambootyrealnappies.co.uk

Please note - our cleaning/care instructions take into consideration balancing,

1. Cleaning the nappies

2. Keeping unnecessary chemicals away from the babies skin where they could be absorbed by the baby

3. The impact the cleaning and any detergents or chemicals have on our environment, including having them in your home

4. Meeting or exceeding Standards Australia's care instruction requirements

At Bambooty we always strive to provide you with the best products, information and advice or help we possibly can. We are currently working with our very own Dr. Rebecca Gehling (Qualifications: BForensicSci (Hons) PhD (Deakin University) currently working as an Environmental and Analytical Chemist) to further investigate our cleaning instructions to ensure they remain the best we can provide you.

As with all our washing needs (t-shirts, jeans, towels etc) indiviual washing routines will vary from 1 household/baby to another. Different concentrations of wee and poo, how long the nappies are left for before being washed, whether they are rinsed first, the type of water, the sensitivity of the baby's skin, whether you want to put stain removal above chemical free cleaning or not, how much sun light/UV rays are available to you in drying, etc etc etc. If you

Australia only - We have always recommended using Eco Store as our suggested washing powder when asked. We feel Eco Store aligns to our goals, of cleaning, whilst remaining healthy on the baby's skin and the environment and have been happily using their products for many years now on both MCNs and all our washing. (Hopefully EcoStore will be available in the UK sometime soon!)

*Please note, this post is not designed to advise anyone on what to do or not to do. 

It is to suggest people question what advice they are given and make their own decisions! Question everything including us! We aren't in your home, we don't know each individual situation. Nor does anyone else. Trust yourself. 

If you aren't happy with the washing results you are getting, then alter things. Some suggestions include, a longer wash, a soak in the wash cycle, adding some more detergent, trying a different detergent, rinsing asap after chaging if you weren't already. 

Whilst most detergents (excluding fabric softnres and bleach) are unlikely to do any harm to your nappies, please do thorough research about the ingredients in your chosen washing powder, search for the pros AND cons of a substance, question whether you want those particular chemicals in your home or on the clothing you wear every day and night! Particularly in the warm moist environment of a nappy. Whilst most of the detergent will be rinsed off, not all of it will be as they can cause some allergies to some people, as well as leaving behind a smell. Further, what impact are those chemicals having on the environment! 

Is the qty advised on the package relevant to you? Are they suggesting 1 quantiy for everyone? Does it take into account the size of your washing machine or the effectiveness of its ability to clean your garments without any washing powder at all?! Do they know if you are drying in the sun or in a dryer? Do they know if you rinsed your garments before washing? Do they perhaps need to provide advice for a worst case or unknown scenario? Are they honest?! 

Please everyone, use your common sense, do your own research into what can be harmful to you, your children, the environment and be comfortable with your own trial and error to learn! This is what I would call and common sense approach to life in general.
