In Australia we have some extreme heat coming our way, as we do every summer, and of course, extreme heat can have a detrimental effect on almost anything…
Your nappies, swim nappies, wet bags and training pants contain components which are more susceptible to heat damage than most items of clothing.
Prolonged exposure to heat (whether from the sun, a heater or a tumble dryer) can damage the waterproofing, elastics and fabric fibres of your products, so it’s important that during the long, hot months of our Australian summers, these items are protected from the scorching temperatures.
In many ways, cloth nappying in summer can be easier than it is in the winter months, so don’t let the 40+ temps stop you. Just keep an eye on the forecast and plan accordingly.
We’d love to hear from you! How do you keep your nappies protected during our long hot summers?
There are a few reasons that retailers balk at the idea of adding cloth nappies to their store. Here are some answers to those concerns.
