We will invoice you the full retail price of the items with terms 7 days. If you do not pay within 7 days, we reserve the right to forward your details to a debt collection agency who will charge an additional fee on top of monies owed to us.
  • If for any reason you cannot return the nappies within the outlined time frame, please contact us to discuss. Extensions may be available at an additional cost.
  • Precious Little Me requires some form of security bond with every hire (either credit card details OR a $100 bond which will be returned once the nappies are received by us in satisfactory condition). We require a security bond to ensure that:
  • we get the nappies back
  • The nappies and accessories come back in the same condition they were sent out.
  • If nappies come back with any issues, we will always contact you first to discuss.
  • What we consider to be inadequate condition:
  • Nappies have lost absorbency or are repelling.
  • Nappies have been soaked in chemicals.
  • Nappies have stains that are unable to be removed (please note light staining on 1 or 2 nappies is fine, if you need some help with getting nappies clean please contact us).
  • Nappies have been in any way permanently altered or damaged beyond repair.
  • PUL in the nappies is damaged due to excess heat (such as using a HOT temperature setting on the dryer) .
  • If there is strong staining, smelly nappies or dye transfer from other fabrics, this may result in the loss of some or all of your bond at our discretion. This is to cover the extra cost and time taken to properly launder the items or replace if necessary.
  • Do not wash nappy shells, covers, wet bags or any item that contains PUL or elastic in temperatures higher than 60 degrees. We recommend 40 degrees.
  • Do not use the following products on any items: fabric softeners, vinegar, bleach or washing powders that contain bleach, whiteners or softeners.
  • Do not use nappy rash/bottom creams without using a liner to protect the inside of the nappy. We do not recommend using any zinc-based creams as they can cause staining. An alternative is to use corn starch/powder or a natural nappy rash cream such as Brauers or the Grovia Magic Stick. If you are having issues with nappy rash please contact us for some helpful suggestions.
  • If it is necessary to use a dryer, make sure it is always on a LOW temperature setting. High temperatures are only suitable for inserts or any nappy that does not contain PUL or elastic.
  • Ensure any nappies with Velcro are fastened prior to washing and drying.
  • Remove any fluff, hair and lint from the velcro. A fine-tooth comb can help with this.

We do not offer partial refunds if you decide to send your package back early.

Washing and care of our nappies

Please follow our instructions below whilst you are using our cloth nappies, if you have ANY queries please contact us, we’re more than happy to help. It is not necessary to strip or sanitise the nappies as this is done between every hire.

We recommend joining the ‘Clean Cloth Nappies’ Facebook page, they are able to help you find a detergent and suitable wash routine that is best for your washing machine. Please do not wash in temperatures hotter than 60 degrees or do a strip and sanitise on our nappies as this is done between every hire.

Once you have taken a nappy off baby, if it is not soiled with solid waste, place it in your nappy bucket or large wet bag provided. If the nappy is soiled with solid waste, deposit as much waste as possible into the toilet and if the nappy is still quite dirty give it a quick rinse in your laundry trough. Then place nappy in a bucket or the large wet bag provided. Once you have one to two days’ worth of nappies place them all in your washing machine. We recommended to do a pre-wash first with half the amount of washing detergent listed on the packaging, so the water is relatively clean. Most washing machines have a quick wash setting that runs for about 30 minutes. We recommend 40 degrees for the pre-wash as well as the main wash. Please do not wash in water any hotter than 60 degrees. After the initial pre-wash, there is no need to dry, add the washing detergent. Please follow instructions that are on the product you are using in terms of how much product is needed in relation to the size of your load.

Most supermarket brands of washing detergent are suitable. A few supermarket brand powders that we recommend include; BioZet attack powder, Omo, Eco Store, etc. Any detergent may be suitable as long as they contain no bleach, harsh chemicals or fragrances.

Hang your nappies up to dry in the sun if possible, making sure that any nappies with elastics are hung horizontally so to avoid damaging the elastics. You can also hang them inside in front of a window if the weather is wet outside. If it is necessary to use a dryer, ensure it is always on a LOW temperature setting for any nappy that contains PUL and/or elastic. Higher temperatures are suitable for inserts and boosters that do not contain PUL or elastic.

Under NO circumstances are you to use fabric softeners, vinegar or bleach. Never use nappy rash creams without a liner (supplied in library) unless you have an MCN safe cream such as the Grovia magic stick. PLEASE contact us to double check a cream is safe without a liner before use. If any nappies are returned with zinc-based stains from nappy rash creams you will be charged the full RRP of the nappy. If nappies come back with any issues, we will always contact you first to discuss.

If at any point you are unsure or need some help with your washing routine, choosing a detergent or are having trouble with staining, leaks or fit issues please contact us and we can help you find a solution.

Please feel free to contact me us if you have any questions or concerns.
