Our new Chlorine Bleach Sanitise page consolidates the Front Loader, Top Loader and Small Scale sanitise calculators.
Most Front Loader washing machines have a 90/95°C sanitise cycle. This is an effective method for sanitising nappies and bouncing ammonia.
Chlorine bleach oxidises and removes certain stains easily. The Clean Cloth Nappies™ Sanitise chlorine bleach table provides the correct quantities to use.
Strip washing is simply washing or soaking. It is a weak oxidation process, which removes some soiling, but does not sanitise. Chlorine bleach is able to remove minor stains, major stains, oxidise ammonia and sanitise against certain pathogens. You don’t need to strip wash because chlorine bleach is a far superior oxidiser.
There is no need to ‘strip’ cloth nappies. We recommend sanitising in dilute bleach followed by a short wash to remove any remaining chlorine.
Chlorine bleach and 90/95°C sanitise cycles both oxidise ammonia. The Clean Cloth Nappies sanitise methods provide directions and calculate chlorine bleach quantities.
Chlorine bleach and 90/95°C degree front loader machine cycles remove mould. It is possible to remove mould spores and stains caused by mould
