Washing and Care


How do I wash my Lighthouse Diapers?

Washing before first use:

  • Wash diapers at a water temperature of 60°C/140°F. 
  • Prep diapers one time before first use for best absorbency.

How to Wash:

  • Place no more than 18 soiled diapers into your washing machine and run a cold pre-wash cycle with no detergent.
  • After your cold pre-wash cycle, wash your diapers on hot, (maximum of 60°C/140°F) with detergent.
  • Once your hot cycle is done run a short rinse on cold.
  • Diapers may be dried in the dryer on low (may need more than one cycle).
  • If you hang dry, make sure to do so by laying it flat to avoid overstretching the elastic over time.

What to Avoid:

  • Do not use laundry additives, such as fabric softeners, stain guards or dryer sheets.
  • Avoid using diaper rash creams/Vaseline directly against your Lighthouse Diaper.  If you need to use diaper creams, please use the provided diaper liner.
