Normal Wear and Tear/Non-manufacturing related damages: All diapering products have a limited lifespan and eventually will show wear and tear. Diapering products are used to contain such acidic substances as urine and feces, and should be washed regularly to avoid *microbial action (diaper breakdown). There is no set amount of time that a diapering product can be expected to last. Many environmental facts come into play (hard water, water temperature, laundry detergent, laundry routine) etc. We do not warranty against degredation from prolonged storage (wet or dry) or wear from use including but not limited to holes, runs under snaps, snags on sidewalks or from pools, wood, cement, or washer/dryer problems.

Should you decide to cancel a custom order, we will refund your purchase price as long as we have not begun work on your order less $1.00 to cover fees incurred by us.
Using Cloth Diapers & Trainers
Wash and dry diapers and trainers on hot prior to first use. There after it is recommended to wash used diaper products within 48 hours
It is normal to have some leaking with pocket diapers and trainers for the first couple of uses. Wash and dry on hot until the leaks cease
Pull apart snapping diapers gently by holding the fabric close to the snap Yanking may damage the diaper
Zorb ll can take up to 7 wash and dry cycles to reach full absorbency
All pocket/AI2 diapers can be used as a swim diaper with the insert removed
Here is a synopsis for washing cloth diapers:
If your child develops a nasty red rash, then you probably have not thoroughly rinsed out your detergent. Look at the water during your final rinse and ensure that there are no soap bubbles. If there are, do another rinse until there are no more bubbles. Next wash, cut back on the amount of detergent you used
Here are a few websites that have a lot of good information on cloth diapering:
The Diaper Jungle
Green Mountain Diapers
Keep in mind that finding the right washing routine requires some playing around at first. You will, with out a doubt, know if the diaper has a bacteria funk smell. Also, if the diaper immediately smells like ammonia when first wet, the diaper is not getting washed thoroughly (there is still residual urine in it). Diapers that have been sitting or used overnight can smell like ammonia though - just not when first wet and not a knock-you-over upon entering the room smell.
*Diaper Breakdown by Microbial action
Cellulose-decomposing bacteria are present everywhere. Damp soiled diapers show virtually no evidence of fiber breakdown for the first 48 hours. After 72 hours (3 days) of incubation, cellulose digesting micro organisms can multiply from 1 hours million/gram to 10 billion per gram of material, at that point they generate a serious appetite and begin digesting cotton, bamboo and hemp. At the end of day 4, studies on cotton show accelerated deterioration, around 9% decomposition after 4 days, and up to 50% decomposition by day 6. What this means is leaving a diaper pail for one 4-day cycle decays a diaper about the same as leaving it for ten 3-day cycles.
These times may be shorter if storage temperatures exceed 24C/75F or spend time in a very warm place like a car or diaperbag left in the sun. Hemp and bamboo will decompose slightly faster than cotton, but the rate is so close treat diapers as if they all decompose at the same rates.
