Care of your Fuzzi Bunz ("Perfect Size" and One-Size versions)

*Instructions on using and caring for your nappies are not routinely sent with orders as many people do not require them with every order. However, copies are available if requested. Please state in the 'additional information' box at the checkout what information you require.

The following instructions are based on the manufacturers' care information. Caring for your Fuzzi Bunz pocket nappies is easy but there are a few do's and don'ts to maintain their condition.

1. Remove a wet nappy and simply shake the nappy insert out of the pocket into your dry nappy bucket and throw the nappy in. There is no need to unfasten the elastic on the Fuzzi Bunz One-Size nappy when laundering. If the nappy is soiled stretch the fleece over the loo and gently shake any solids into the toilet. If the nappy is still very soiled you will probably find this will rinse off by putting the washing machine through a pre-wash rinse cycle, though you might prefer to rinse it off by hand - hold in the toilet while flushing and holding FIRMLY! onto a corner. Put the nappy and nappy insert into your dry nappy bucket.

2. On wash day I recommend running your Fuzzi Bunz nappies through a rinse cycle in your machine without detergent before washing. Adding soda crystals (cheap, widely available and very eco-friendly) will help to remove excess faeces and urine.

3. Wash using a 40 or 60ºC wash cycle and rinse. Use ½ to 2/3 of the recommended amount of detergent (for heavily soiled laundry) to prevent build up of detergent on the fabric. There is no need to soak Fuzzi Bunz and soaking can cause lingering smells.

4. Ideally hang your pocket nappies to dry outside or inside in a warm place, but not directly on a radiator etc. Hang them fleece side up to speed drying. They will dry in a few hours. You can tumble dry them but use the lowest heat setting to maintain their condition.

5. To make Fuzzi Bunz even easier to use store them ready-stuffed with an insert.

A few DON'Ts

Caring for your nappies properly will keep them looking and performing their best. Below is a list of things that can harm your nappies and result in leaks.

  • Don't use a nappy barrier or balm cream with these nappies- it will leave a greasy residue on the stay dry inner which is very difficult to remove. If you want to use a cream because of severe nappy rash use our thick nappy liners to prevent cream getting onto the nappy or switch to a different nappy system to preserve your Fuzzi Bunz pocket nappies.
  • Don't use any bleach products. Bleach is a strong chemical and will break down the fibres in your nappies.
  • Don't use fabric softener. It will coat the fabrics, making them water repellent and will cause leaks! Be aware that if you use dryer sheets in your dryer for other laundry this can coat your dryer and transfer to your nappies. If you encounter leaks with your Fuzzi Bunz nappies, try hang drying instead.
  • Don't wash or dry on HOT or HIGH HEAT! The PUL layer (waterproof outer) is meant for warm or low heat only! Preserve the life of your nappies by following this recommendation.
  • Don't use tea tree oil or other essential oils. This may coat the fabrics, causing them to repel liquid.

A few tips

  • Do wash your nappies after every use (i.e. do not add fresh insert to a used pocket nappy).
  • Reusable nappies do not require much detergent and too much can leave residue on the fibres, possibly causing your nappies to smell, leak, or leave baby with a rash. 1/2 to 2/3 of the recommended amount per load should be sufficient. We recommend an ecologically responsible non-bio detergent such as Ecover to wash Fuzzi Bunz.
  • Soaking dirty nappies (in a bucket filled with water & disinfectant or detergent) is not necessary. A dry nappy bucket with a tight fitting lid or an airtight bag works fine.
