This is a no-nonsense nappy and booster pad that can be washed, and tumble dried at high temperature.
They can be washed in a normal washing machine at 40 deg C and can only be tumble dried at low heat. It should preferably be hung out to airdry as this will increase the lifespan of the waterproof layer. Be aware that it takes 4 to 6 hours to air dry because of the thickness of the cotton absorption pad.
The correct way is to rinse the waterproof and airdry. It dries within plus minus 60 minutes.
Use an eco-friendly nappy liner that can be flushed away in the toilet. An economic nappy liner is a common paper base kitchen washing cloth cut to size.
Each panty and briefs have a built-in cotton pad made of two layers of high-quality 100% cotton towelling together with a 100% polyester waterproof layer.
No, there is only one correct way.
The cotton pad should be close to the body, and the waterproof layer should be away from the body to trap the liquid and prevent it from spilling. If it is worn the wrong way around, the cotton pad cannot absorb the liquid as it is blocked off by the waterproof layer. PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT THE SILK LABEL IS ON THE OUTSIDE ONCE YOU HAVE GOT THE PANTIES OR BRIEFS ON.
You will need to order two more ladies’ panties, men’s briefs, nappies or booster pads than the number of disposable products you currently use per day. This will cater for the washing and drying time of the products and will last you for at least one year. If this is your first order, start with a minimum of three products. You will further need to order two waterproofs if you order up to three nappies and a maximum of three waterproofs if you order more than three nappies
