How are the nappies cleaned between hirers?
All nappies are sanitised to HSE (health and safety executive) high standards to ensure the safety of your child. You can find details here on the advice of Public Health England and in line with the requirements of our insurers. All nappies are then freshly laundered using Splosh non-bio unfragranced liquid detergent before being despatched.
If you go on to buy preloved nappies yourself and wish to ensure that they are sanitised in line with this guidance, there is full instructions here.
Why do you charge a hire fee?
The hire fee supports the running of Cloth Nappy Nerds Hire Kits, from the website and other costs, to replacement of nappies as they show signs of wear, through to laundry costs and growing the nappy library kits.
How do I return the kit?
The kit must be returned in the same mailing bag as it was sent to you in as this forms part of your hire kit. The mailing bags we use are reusable and have a tamperproof seal to the zip. To open the kit you will break this tamper proof seal by pulling the zip. A replacement tamperproof seal is attached to this leaflet. Once you are ready to return the kit, place the clean and fully dry good condition items inside the mailing bag, close with the zip and seal with the tamperproof seal. Attach our return address found at the bottom of the Getting Started guide and then organise return shipping.
You will need to organise shipping back to us, cost of returning the hire kit is at your expense, you can use any company but this must be tracked and insured post to the value of your deposit amount, as the parcel is your responsibility until it is returned to us. Please retain proof of posting. If you live in or near Doncaster, you can drop them off.
