Fuzzi Bunz Wash and Care RecommendationsThe following care instructions are directly from the Fuzzi Bunz manufacturer. For more information, please visit www.fuzzibunz.com.
Wash your Fuzzi Bunz before using and after trying them on your baby for fit.
Fuzzi Bunz pocket diapers and their inserts must be washed after each use.
Use a laundry basket or diaper pail to store dirty Fuzzi Bunz and cloth diapers until wash day. Some prefer to soak dirty diapers in a wet pail. **If you decide to do this, your water should be changed daily.**
When removing a dirty Fuzzi Bunz from your baby, shake or knock any solid bowel movement into the toilet. You can rinse any residual BM off the cover if you would like, but this is not necessary. Pull the prefold or insert from the Fuzzi Bunz pocket before storing. They can all be washed together.
It is not recommended that you let your dirty Fuzzi Bunz and prefolds / inserts sit too long before washing; odors may set in.
On wash day, run the dirty Fuzzi Bunz and cloth diapers in a cold soak or prewash. If you do not have a soak cycle, run them through a rinse cycle. If you have already soaked your diapers in a pail, spin out any remaining dirty water.
Wash your Fuzzi Bunz and cloth diapers in HOT water with a moderate amount of detergent (1/4 - 1/2 of the recommended dose). Too much detergent produces build up and is the single most common cause of leaking problems not to mention harsh on a baby's skin.
An additional rinse can be used for particularly soiled loads. Make sure that your diapers are rinsed clean. Any residue from poop, urine, detergent or vinegar can make your diapers stink.
Fuzzi Bunz should not stain although some diaper rash ointments will stain and care should be taken when using such products if you want your Fuzzi Bunz to stay nice and stain free.
Do not use fabric softener or use pure soap products on your Fuzzi Bunz.
Do not use bleach or expose to high heat for prolonged periods of time.
Do not use too much detergent - only a little is needed to get the job done.
Do not use pure "soap" products on your Fuzzi Bunz because of the coating that they leave. Many "natural" detergents will do the same.
