According to Thirsties’ website here’s how you should wash and care for your Thirsties’ cloth diapers:
Wash: The wash and care instructions for Thirsties are similar to other cloth diaper wash instructions – wash on hot with a heavy cycle and do a cold rinse. As you can expect do not use anything in your washing routine that has additives, softeners, or dyes. Thirsties recommends not using water that is higher than 130 degrees. Doing so will cause damage to the diaper.
Drying: The drying suggestion is the same as other cloth diapering companies – mostly on low heat. Thirsties recommends a 15 minute cycle on high heat once a month. This was interesting for me to read. Other cloth diapering parents, retailers, and bloggers disagree with this practice. Thirsties suggests sunning your diapers.
Warranty: The warranty is for the first year to the date of purchase. This covers sewing defects that occur before the diaper has been used. It does not cover any wear and tear issues such as leaking, stains, fading, or residual build up.
Any use of bleach, Borax or fabric softeners will disqualify your product from warranty.
