Care Instructions

BabyKicks Hemparoo® Care Instructions

BabyKicks Hemparoo® Diapers and Joey-Bunz are made from 55% hemp and 45% cotton.

Please wash your diapers three times in hot water with detergent, drying them each time before you first use them. They'll continue to increase in absorbency with use, but that should be enough to get most of the natural oils washed out.

Washing your hemp

You may use any detergent that does not contain enzymes (as enzymes can eat away at your baby's skin once he or she wets, causing a painful rash). If you use a soap product, be sure to do a second cycle with 1/3 cup baking soda to avoid build-up. You may also want to try using 1/4 cup vinegar in the rinse.

Our suggested washing routine:

Wash once in cold water with an enzyme free detergent. Then wash once in hot water adding 1/3 cup baking soda. Last comes a rinse cycle. Tumble dry on medium heat to reduce wear on the fibers.
