Bummis Washing Instructions


  1. Run a warm pre-wash (or a short cycle with no detergent)
  2. Do a regular wash in hot water (60C/140F max). Do not use a sanitize cycle on any products with hook & loop closures or elastic. See detergent information below please!
  3. Rinse diapers in lots of water to avoid build-up of detergent, bacteria and urine.
  4. Dry in the dryer or outside on a clothesline (check the label of your product, as some products should only be hung to dry). Sunlight is a natural brightener and disinfectant!5. Once washed, your diapers should not smell like urine or detergent. If they do, chances are you have a residue problem. Please see our info sheet on residues!


We recommend using a zero residue detergent! If you have a top loader, you can use the full recommended amount of a zero residue detergent. If you have a front-loader or HE machine, stick to the lower end of the recommended amount of detergent.Choose a detergent that does not contain any of the following additives, as they can create residue problems. Detergent residue will lead to leaking, absorbency issues and stinky wraps.
  • Fabric softeners
  • Natural oils
  • Perfumes
  • Dyes
  • UV brighteners
  • Stain guard ingredients
  • Enzymes (they will not affect performance, but may cause rashes on some babies’ skin)
  • Please be cautious about using vinegar and/or baking soda, as they can together or individually cause problems with some diapering products. We recommend that you do not use either of these unless specifically suggested by the manufacturer of your diaper or wrap.

We recommend the following washing products:
  • Rockin’ Green
  • Allen’s Naturally
  • Sensi-Clean and Sport-Wash
  • Charlie’s Soap
  • Country Save
  • Mountain Green Baby Free & Clear
  • Seventh Generation Delicate Care
  • Nature Clean Powder or Liquid
  • Claudia’s Choices Wonder Wash
A bleach alternative can be used on an occasional basis for stain removal. It should contain no ingredients beyond sodium carbonate or sodium percarbonate. Some Bummis favourites are:
