How to Wash Cloth Diapers Using Beyond by Unicorn Baby

If your item has a care label, always review it before proceeding.
GETTING STARTED
  • Prior to inserting into wet bag, remove matter from soiled diapers.
  • Keep loads between 12-15 diapers.
  • For Lightly soiled items, run a "prewash cycle" with warm water and no detergent. However for heavier soiled items, run a "wash cycle" with warm to hot water and 1-oz of Beyond Clean.
  • For funky "Barn" odors or more stubborn built in residue, see the Stripping routine located under Cloth Info & Tips Tab.

THEN: FOR HE FRONT OR TOP LOADER

  • Add 1oz Beyond Clean to Detergent dispenser and 1oz Beyond Soft to rinse dispenser.
  • Set on heavy duty cycle with warm to hot water
  • Tumble dry on low to no heat (air fluff) or hang to dry. Follow manufacturer's instructions.

OR FOR REGULAR (OLD FASHION) WASHER

  • Add 1 Tablespoon of Beyond Clean for every 2 gallons of water. If you don't have a detergent dispenser, fill your machine with water before adding detergent.
  • Add 1 oz Beyond Soft to either rinse dispenser or directly into rinse water.
  • Set on Heavy Duty cycle with warm to hot water.
  • Tumble dry on low to no heat (air fluff) or hang to dry. Follow manufacturer's instructions.

** With really hard or really soft water, the amount of detergent may need to be slightly adjusted up or down, respectively. So please use this as a guideline.

 

Wash cloth diapers separate from your other laundry loads. You can wash your diapers and covers together, unless the manufacturer recommends to wash separately. Don't overload the washing machine - this can cause pilling from friction and can also reduce the efficiency of the wash.

DRYING:

Some diapers are fine being dried in a commercial dryer, while others will degrade over time with that level of heat. Check the manufacturer label on your cloth diapers to determine if you should dry them in the dryer or hang them outside to dry.
