We know from our own experience that the use of reusable diapers is an expression of awareness and the resulting care for the child, and is also ecologically and economically justified and gives great satisfaction, which is why we recommend reusable diapers from the Polish brand DOODUSH.
Doodush pockets are made with the utmost care using the best quality Polish materials. The outer material is a soft-to-touch and elastic PUL fabric, which does not allow water molecules to pass through, but allows water vapor particles to pass through, which minimizes the risk of chafing in children.
The inner layer of the diaper is Coolmax or microfleece (to choose from).
Coolmax is a very breathable and airy material. After getting wet, the baby feels wet – it is great for hot days or when you want to start the process of diapering your baby. It is easy to keep clean and dries quickly.
Thanks to its structure, microfleece maintains an appropriately warm and dry skin microclimate. It is anti-allergic, does not cause allergies, is easy to clean and dries very quickly. It is characterized by lightness, good breathability and anti-peeling finish.
This is a product refined in every respect:
- cut – perfectly fitted – a system of durable, densely spaced snaps allows the diaper to be well adjusted to the child’s age and weight. Elastic bands around the legs prevent leaking, and a flat elastic band at the waist facilitates proper adhesion to the child’s skin,
- fabrics from Polish, leading producers, all with certificates,
- sewing – very careful,
- the diaper is really easy to use – it is easy to put on, it can be used both day and night, and care is also easy as long as you remember a few important things (we have listed them below),
- product supplemented with matching and very absorbent natural or synthetic inserts (available in our store).
A very refined product, resistant to repeated washing – the colors do not clash and the diaper itself does not deform.
The description of the composition, washing and use methods is sewn in on the label.
Washing at 40-60°C.
They are intended for children at every stage of diapering – there are two sizes to choose from:
- OS (One Size) – intended for children from approx. 6-7 to 14-15 kg.
- XL – intended for children from 9 to 18 kg.
Below we present some practical notes taken from the manufacturer’s website:
- You should not wash diapers on an economical program – economical programs use less water,
so in this case the diapers may not be rinsed thoroughly. This, in turn, can cause both skin
problems in your child and the formation of detergent deposits in fabric fibers.
2. Do not use chlorine bleach – it will destroy the rubber bands and PUL fabric and will void the warranty.
3. Do not wash at temperatures above 60 degrees C – the membrane in the PUL fabric may gradually become sticky under the influence of such high temperatures. Washing at 60 degrees is fully sufficient – coli bacteria are destroyed at 60 degrees after about 25 minutes of washing, and with the use of an antibacterial additive already at 40 degrees C. Boiling the diapers and ironing is therefore unnecessary.
4. Do not use detergents that will stick to the diaper fibers – do not use fabric softeners. In the case of synthetic inserts (with microfiber) or pockets, it is also important to use washing powder containing less than 5% soap. If the synthetic material (microfiber, colmax, microfleece, mayka) becomes greasy, it may stop absorbing moisture. In such a case, you should degrease the diaper by soaking it in hot water with dishwashing liquid. After a few hours, rinse the diapers by hand and then wash them in the washing machine.
5. Do not use baking soda and vinegar in excessive amounts or constantly as washing additives – this may cause faster wear of the elastic bands, PUL fabric and the entire diaper. Instead of using these products frequently, it is a good idea to crumple the diapers a little after washing, as this loose
6. Do not dry diapers/swaddles with a PUL layer on a radiator or in a tumble dryer – there is no need to do so because they are almost dry and this may cause the breathable laminate layer to melt, which will lose its waterproof properties and leak.
7. Do not spin diapers/swaddles with a PUL layer at a speed above 800 rpm – this may cause the PUL to delaminate and stretch the air-permeable pores, resulting in moisture being allowed to pass through.
8. Do not rinse diapers in hot water – this will set the stains. Just use gall soap and additional rinsing in cold water. Hanging wet inserts in the sun after washing also helps with stubborn stains. This method can really work wonders!
9. Diapers should not be ironed – the PUL layer would be irreversibly damaged, while the inserts would become less absorbent.
10. When using synthetic inserts (microfiber) or pockets with microfleece/Coolmax, do not allow the diaper to come into direct contact with the diaper rash cream – the fibers would become greasy, which would reduce the absorbency of the diaper. If you need to apply diaper rash cream, you can use disposable tissue paper as a barrier between the diaper and your baby’s bottom. The effects of long-term use of lubricating ointments can also be prevented by degreasing diapers using dishwashing liquid, described above. If you need to use creams, it is best to choose a swaddle + cotton/bamboo insert system – in this case you don’t have to worry about getting it greasy.
11. How to handle a diaper so as not to damage it? When placing the absorbent insert in a diaper or wrap, be careful not to catch the PUL fabric with a ring or fingernail and follow the instructions provided. Do not exceed the recommended washing temperature, dry them preferably naturally. We do not iron diapers and swaddles. When undoing the snaps, always hold the fabric as close to the snaps as possible with your finger to prevent damaging the fabric.
12. How to remove stains from diapers? It is best to wash stains, e.g. from poop, immediately under cold water with the addition of gall soap or powder, leave the diaper for a few hours, and then rinse it in cold water. If washing does not remove all the stains, it is worth exposing the diaper to the sun, which is great at whitening stubborn stains.
