Waterproof Fabric Care
Our signature fabric is 100% polyester with a waterproof coating embedded into the fabric. Since mealtime with baby can get messy, we made our fabric wipeable, machine washable, and easy to rinse and hang after use.
- Before Washing: Ensure all crumbs and food residue is rinsed off bibs or bags. Then flip bib pocket and/or bag inside out prior to washing and drying.
- Washing: Wash in any temperature water. Machine or hand wash with regular laundry detergent in your normal laundry load. Do not use any bleach or any non-chlorine bleach additives. When washing in the kitchen sink, any liquid dish soap can be used.
- To Avoid Stains: Promptly rinse bibs in cold water and launder as soon as possible. Some foods, like tomato sauce or beet juice, may stain the fabric if left too long before washing.
- Mold Prevention: Mold spores form when fabric is splashed with food or water and then left somewhere warm and dark while still damp. It is best to clean food from bibs and bags immediately, flip pocket of bib inside out, and then wash and fully dry prior to storing.
- Cleaning Instructions: There are many ways to wash and care for silicone. You may place your silicone in the dishwasher (top rack only), or hand wash with dish soap and warm water and let air dry. For quick & easy sterilizing, place teethers in boiling water for about 5 minutes. Remove from the water with tongs and let cool.
Removing Odors from Silicone Dishware: Some washing products and foods with a strong odor may leave a residue odor or taste in the silicone grip dish. Additionally, hard water (water with a high mineral content), could leave a thin coating on the dish which could impact the ability of the dish to suction.
We have found a few different simple procedures that have been successful at removing the unwanted odors or tastes and refresh the silicone to stick better.
1. Silicone grip dishes can be safely placed in boiling water to sterilize and to remove strong odors.
2. Submerge the dish in a mixture of hot water and white vinegar using the ratio of 1 cup of vinegar for every two cups of hot water. Soak for 30 minutes and then scrub with a gentle cleaning sponge. White vinegar is used to reduce mineral build-up from hard water and can be used regularly without harming the dish. Rinse and dry thoroughly.
3. Coat the dish with a mixture of white vinegar and baking soda using the ratio of 1 tbsp. of white vinegar to 2 tbsp. of baking soda. Allow the coated dish to sit overnight. Rinse thoroughly to completely remove the baking soda mixture and dry thoroughly.
4. Try using a rinse agent in your dishwasher to reduce mineral build-up.
Basic Cloth Diaper Washing Routine
