Swaddlebee organic velour fitted has hemp -- first wash ?s

633 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  *margarita*
I just bought a new SB one size organic velour fitted, and I know it has hemp in it. I know you're supposed to wash hemp (e.g., joey bunz) 3 or 4 times on hot before using them to get out the oil. I also know that during these initial washes, you shouldn't include anything but other new hemp items.

So, do I treat the SB the same way? It's the only new dipe I have that has hemp in it. So do I need wash it those first 3 or 4 times all by itself? I also bought some new pocket dipes that need to be washed, but do I need to keep them away from the hemp until I'm done with those initial washes?

Any "natural" unbleached fabrics have oils in them. You don't have to wash it by itself. The only reason not to is you might have a chance of the oils getting onto something else, but I've never had that happen in almost 4 yrs of cding.

I usually just wash my new diapers once and don't expect them to preform to there best the first few times they are worn

You don't need to pre-wash it as many times as you would have to with hemp inserts because the OV layers are absorbant enough just as they are. You should be fine with just 1 pre-wash.
