Have you ever wished for a pail liner to fit a smaller pail? Well, your wish is Thirsties command! Introducing Thirsties Simple Mini Pail Liner designed to fit most 15 litre (or 4-gallon) wastebaskets. Available in Aqua, Fin, Jet and now Seafoam.   Thirsties Simple Mini Liner is made with a water resistant PUL, to help prevent leaking and looks and functions exactly like its larger counterpart—it’s just mini!

Simple wring out your wet nappies and toss them in!

To clean your liner, wash with your soiled nappies.  We recommend turning your pail liner inside out while washing. Use the attached closure strap to hold in odours while carrying your liner to the wash. We recommend purchasing at least two liners to keep in rotation.

  • Elastic opening provides a snug fit on most dry pails up to 15 litres or 4 gallons
  • Water resistant TPU laminate prevents leaking to keep moisture out of your nappy bucket or diaper pail
  • Sewn-in closure strap keeps odours in when liner is not in a nappy bucket or diaper pail

Pail Liners are perfect to use in waste paper baskets or kitchen bench top bins.  Keep a Mini Liner in the bathroom for cloth pads or make up removing cloths.  Use them at day care instead of a pail or even to line a bucket if your centre wants a bucket.

Thirsties Wash and Care Recommendations


Wash all products at least one time before use.

Thirsties hemp products can be used after 3 wash/dry cycles, and will reach maximum absorbency after 8 wash/dry cycles.


Shake solids into toilet after each diaper change. Store your soiled Thirsties Cloth Nappies in a DRY diaper pail. A standard 52-quart garbage pail with a lid works great and can be purchased at your local department store. Be sure to line your pail with a Thirsties Simple Pail Liner to avoid having to clean your pail on every laundry day.

Stow your stash of Thirsties Organic Cotton Wipes in an accessible location to your changing table. Toss soiled wipes into your pail along with your diapers.


*Soaking is not recommended for Thirsties Cloth Diapers. This will void your warranty.

For optimum cleanliness, limit the size of your load to no more than 18 one size diapers or 24 newborn diapers and wash every other day (plus inserts and wipes). Set your washer to an adequate water level for the amount of diapers. The diapers should have enough room to move around during the wash cycle to allow them to agitate again each other. A stew consistency is a good visual for the ratio of water to diapers. Use cold or warm water for the pre-wash cycle to help pre-clean your diapers. If you do not have a pre-wash cycle on your washer, a short or quick wash cycle will work just as well. You may  add a small amount of detergent to the pre-wash cycle if desired.
For HE machines, we suggest a load of 12-15 diapers. Diapers need a good amount of water to clean them properly, and HE machines use less water. Here are some tricks to adding water to your HE diaper load:

  • Use cycles such as heavy duty or bedding, or the “extra water”/”deep fill” option to get enough water in your machine.
  • Select the Soak option to fill the washer with water, and then spin the water out. This will wet the diapers, making them heavier. In turn, that will trick the washer to use more water.
  • Spray the diapers with a diaper sprayer before putting into the diaper pail. This will wet the diapers, making them heavier. In turn, that will trick the washer to use more water.


Choose a HEAVY cycle and wash on HOT for the main wash, using an adequate water level. Please be sure not to use temperatures over 130 degrees for any item with components. Use the recommended amount of cloth diaper safe detergent per load.

Please avoid soaps as well as additives such as bleach, fabric softeners, brighteners, and dyes. These can not only harm your diapers, but your baby’s sensitive skin as well.

As a general rule, please avoid using:

  • Borax
  • Bleach (oxygen or chlorine)
  • Fabric Softeners
  • Laundry Boosters
  • Pure Soap
  • Sanitize cycles or other high heat cycles in HE machines

These practices and/or additives can void the warranty of your Thirsties products when used routinely.


Rinse on warm, adding an extra rinse.


Hang your cloth diapers to dry or dry in dryer on low. Inserts, flats, and prefolds may be dried on medium settings.

*Routine drying in the dryer can shorten the life of your diapering product – especially on diapers or covers with components such as hook and loop fasteners and elastic.

Add a dry towel or wool dryer balls to the dryer to speed the drying process.

A hot, 15 minute dryer cycle once a month is beneficial to lamination.

Drying in direct sunlight is the very best method for drying and helps aid in the removal of stains. However, take care not to leave diapers out longer than necessary, as UV rays and high temperatures can also have an ill effect on diapering products. Cotton and hemp diapers will be somewhat stiff when hung to dry. One option to soften sun-dried textiles made from natural fibers is to use the dryer while still slightly damp.
