Adult incontinence can be a financial burden, as well as a difficult issue to cope with, but using an adult cloth diaper can be a reliable, affordable and reusable option. Super Undies makes adult cloth diapers and incontinence underwear based on child diapers that are proven to work, but in larger sizes. These items are designed for daytime use. Our pull-on style adult cloth diaper is trim and allows for adjustable absorbency through the use of inserts. Each pair of pull-on style adult cloth diapers has two layers of absorbency built in, along with a pocket that will allow you to add more absorbency as needed. The waterproof outer shell does not need a cover over it. The tabs, made of a beautifully stretchy soft lycra, wrap comfortably around the hips for pleasant but secure all-day wear.

Reusable adult cloth diapers can save you major cash over disposable diaper use. Although the price of adult cloth diapers can give you sticker shock when you consider that the average incontinence adult spends over $150 a month, but many full-time incontinent adults spend close to $400 per month, rotating between just 10 pairs of Super Undies can pay for itself in 3 months or less. And the best part? Super Undies can last up to three years with proper care. Most incontinence Super Undies users have a variety of underwear, including a few Snap-on Adult Cloth Diapers for traveling out, some Pull-on Adult cloth diapers for at home maximum comfort, and a pair or two of our Heavy Absorbency Overnight adult cloth diapers, that can take you through the night.
The Quick Version: Turn inside to and place in garment bag. Wash with trusted detergent. Dry on Medium. No bleach – No fabric Softener. The Longer Version: There are many different products and routines people use when laundering their cloth diapers. Here at Super Undies we always recommend washing our products in a garment bag. This will help prevent the inserts from getting caught around the agitator in your washing machine (if you have one) and getting torn or ripped away at the seam of the diaper. We first recommend washing your Super Undies on either a warm, or cold wash prior to use once you have made sure the product fits your child. Once the product has been used we recommend using a diaper sprayer to rid the diaper of any solids into your toilet. Do you need to purchase a diaper sprayer? No! but it makes life so much easier when cloth diapering. If your Super Undies are soiled, use the diaper sprayer, or just shake the solids out into the toilet. To help reduce stains you will want to cold rinse the diaper and throw it into a diaper pail, or wet bag keeping it wet until you are ready to wash. You will want to wash our products every day or every other day. You will want to use your washing machines highest water level available. You may need to pre-rinse with no detergent and then follow through with a warm wash with detergent. You can then dry our products either in the dryer, or line dry them or a combination of both. Please note that cotton is a natural fiber and does have a tendency to fray. Fraying of any cotton product is not considered a defect but rather something that can naturally occur. What to Avoid: You will want to avoid using chlorine bleach on a regular basis. It will start to break down the fibers and shorten the life and absorbency of the diapers. It also may irritate your child’s skin. You also want to avoid using any fabric softeners, liquid or sheets. Fabric softeners coat the absorbent layers of the diapers and will reduce absorbency. Lengthen the Life of Your Super Undies: To lengthen the life of your Super Undies you will want to hang dry your diapers overnight, or partially dry in the dryer and then hang dry after a cold rinse. Minimize use of bleach or any products containing bleach. You can use 1/2 c. of lemon juice to whiten, or sun them in cold weather to freshen and remove stains. Funky/Smelly Diapers: Over time cloth diapers tend to get a build up of uric acid and ammonia from urine causing a funky smell and will also cause your Super Undies to not be as absorbent as they once were. We recommend looking up “how to strip cloth diapers” and finding the recipe you prefer to strip your Super Undies of any funky smells. Choosing a Detergent: There are many opinions about which detergents are best for cloth diapers. We believe you should use what works for you and your family. Remember, if you feel your detergent isn’t working, you can always strip your diapers and start over. Do not use any baby detergents such as Dreft, since they contain fabric softeners.
