Night nappies should smell like nothing more than normal wee in the morning, no big stink that fills the bedroom and definitely no powerful ammonia. Because night nappies have a greater absorption capacity, they require an additional very thorough separate rinse, to remove the heavy urine load from the nappy. This along with a good wash routine will prevent smells and the development of ammonia.
This can be done in the laundry every morning, or in the shower to save time.
1. Rinse with hot water
2. Rinse with hot water and a small amount of laundry detergent
3. Final hot water rinse
4. Wring nappy out and dry pail. It can be hung over the side of the pail or spun in the washing machine to dry out.
