Washing & Drying

How should I wash my diapers?
It is important that you wash all Bambino Mio products in accordance with the washing instructions on the individual garment label. You must remove any excess soiling before washing your diapers. We recommend washing your diapers up to 140°F (we recommend 104°F) using the recommended amount of non-biological laundry detergent. Do not use fabric softener when washing as this can affect the absorbency of your diapers. Please note that bright colors may fade over time.
We recommend adding one scoop (1 oz) of miofresh diaper cleanser to your laundry detergent drawer. This will help freshen and deodorize your diapers while washing.
To get the best out of your diapers we recommend washing regularly at 104°F with one scoop of miofresh diaper cleanser and air drying them. Washing regularly at higher temperatures and frequent tumble drying can result in premature deterioration of your diapers.

How can I remove stains & odors?
Due to the nature of our products, we cannot guarantee that staining can be completely prevented. However, using miofresh diaper cleanser regularly can help prevent the staining of your diapers. We recommend adding one scoop (1 oz) of miofresh with your laundry detergent in every wash. Alternatively, if staining occurs you can soak your diapers in a hand hot solution of miofresh for at least 2 hours. Use 1 oz of miofresh for every 176 fl oz of water. After soaking, wash in the washing machine at 104°F and give your diapers an additional rinse afterwards. Please note: you must ONLY soak the core of your diapers in this solution, keeping the laminated outer fabric out of the soaking solution. Bambino Mio cannot be responsible for any deterioration to the products after incorrect soaking.

Performance & Fit
My diapers are leaking, why?
There are a number of reasons why you could be experiencing diaper leakage:
a) Are you changing often enough? You need to change your cloth diaper every 2-4 hours just like a disposable. As your baby gets bigger you may find you need to change your diaper more regularly.
b) Are you using a diaper liner? Ensure that your diaper liner lays flat on top of your diaper and do not fold the diaper liner to create a double layer.
c) Are you using any diaper creams? We recommend you only used water-based creams when using cloth diapers as the oils in the product can reduce the absorbency of your diapers. If using a water-based diaper cream, only apply a thin layer and always use a diaper liner.
d) Have your diapers been prepared correctly? Have you prewashed your diapers at least once before you have started using them? Check that the absorbent core is lying flat inside the miosolo all-in-one diaper. Ensure that you are using the correct size miosoft two-piece diaper and that it has been folded correctly.

e) The fit of your diapers may need to be adjusted. If your diapers feel too tight or loose they may need adjusting. Treat your diapers like a piece of clothing, they should not be too tight or too loose. If you are using the miosolo all-in-one diaper you can use the snaps to adjust the length of the diaper and angle the hoop and look to change the size of the leg holes to suit your baby. If you are using the miosoft two-piece diaper ensure your onesize diaper is folded correctly and your baby is in the correct size diaper cover Click for user guide.
Please ensure that the diapers fit snugly against your baby’s legs and tummy. By adjusting the angle of the hook and loop tabs you can alter the size of the leg openings to make them bigger or smaller.
If using the miosoft two-piece diaper check that the diaper is completely tucked inside the diaper cover at the waist and leg openings.
f) Your diapers may not have enough absorbency. As your baby grows you may need to add more absorbency to your diapers. Adding a diaper booster is a great way to maximize the absorbency of your diapers. If you have tried a mioboost (diaper booster) and this is not working, you may need to restore your diapers to their original absorbency by “strip washing” them. Please see the ‘WASHING & DRYING’ section of this page to see more information about strip washing your Bambino Mio diapers.
