  • Do not soak or wash the nappy in nappy san as this can affect the water proof lining you can however soak the reusable insert in nappy san just not the nappy part
  • However soaking of the bamboo inserts would be okay in napisan but not bleach.
  • Machine rinse before washing in cold water using ½ strength detergent on a full load.
  • Line drying is best. The sun's UV rays kill bacteria and fade stains. Best of all: it's FREE.

  • Gently massage the detergent into the inner lining of each nappy.
  • Do another full cold wash cycle with no detergents.
  • A deep clean every couple of months will maintain absorbency.
