Diaper Preparation Before First Use (This is an important step... don't skip it!!) Wash training pants on hot with detergent and tumble dry, repeating this process 5â€“6 times before first use (The Training Pants will continue to gain absorbency with these additional washing). You can wash your trainers with any load of laundry before use. I always washed mine 2 times and started using them recognizing that they would be more absorbent after the 5th washing. Reason: The fabrics used for absorbency have minimal processing done to them and this gets them ready to absorb.
Most people don't have enough training pants to make an entire laundry load. If this is true for you, feel free to wash wet trainers with any load of laundry on cold or warm. If you have any poopy trainers, put them in your washer first and run a cold rinse or a short cold wash cycle to remove any poo residues, then wash warm with the rest of your laundry. Trainers wash well with a load of towels. Be sure to NOT use any bleach, enzyme cleaners or fabric softeners
