FAQ: How do I wash my wipes to ensure they are hygienic?
There is a three pronged approach to hygiene.
Soaking your wipes in teatree & teatree lemon mucky oil in the mucky box kick starts the hygiene process as teatree & teatree lemon are both anti-bacterial - and cold soaking your mucky wipes helps to loosen the stains (poo) so they wash well.
I recommend washing your wipes at 60c at least once a week (with bedding or towels) as this kills off any lingering bacteria or germs. If you prefer not to wash at 60, you can use a proprietary anti-bac laundry cleanser such as Dettol, which claims to kill 99.9% of germs from just 15c.
Drying your wipes - either in the tumble dryer (again the high temp kills any bacteria) or on the washing line also help. After all, sunlight is nature's own bleach.
