Transcription: Cloth Nappy Liners.
Hi, it’s Vashti from Nest Nappies and today I’m here to talk to you about liners. Now liners are generally what you lay inside a nappy just to help with poo cleanup. They come in two different sorts, a reusable liner and a one use liner. Now one use liners are often touted as being flushable as well. Here at Nest we definitely don’t recommend that you flush your liners, they don’t break down as quickly as we would like and so we tend to recommend if you can just pick the liner up out of the nappy, poo and all, and give it a dunk, swish, and flush in the toilet and then bin the liner.
These are generally made out of a bamboo or a cornstarch [inaudible] and so they can be composted in your non-food grade compost and will break down quite easily as you can see so they are fully biodegradable. Now your reusable liner, these are generally made from a microfleece or a silk material. They are so thick and they’ll help keep your baby’s bottom feeling nice and dry. Once again, it just seems a matter of when Bobby does a poo, when you change the nappy, you pick that up and give it a dunk, swish, and flush at the toilet and then you wash the liner with your nappies.
Raw silk is a natural fibre that has a semi stay dry feel to it and so if you are looking for natural fibres or natural liners for your nappies, have a look at raw silk but otherwise you are definitely looking at a synthetic fibre to pop in as a reusable liner. So that’s liners. If you’ve got any questions about how to use your liners in your nappies, feel free to get in contact with us. Our info is email@NestNappies.com.au or use the contact form on our website. We look forward to seeing you again soon and thanks for visiting us at Nest.
