Bells Bumz Warranty
Bells Bumz offers a 12 month warranty for the original purchaser from date of purchase (not date of first use) on all reusable nappies and wraps as long as they have been subject to reasonable use. A 6 month warranty for the original purchaser from date of purchase (not date of first use) applies to all other products as long as they have been subject to reasonable use. Proof of purchase is required.
The warranty extends to all parts of the nappy such as fastenings, elastics and PUL. Bells Bumz nappies are made to last although like all things they will eventually show signs of wear and tear. They will last longer if you take care of them properly.
To claim under the warranty you must have followed Bells Bumz washing instructions:
• All Nappies and wraps including inserts/ boosters (anything used as a nappy) must have an initial pre-wash followed by a full wash. For a "pre-wash" we recommend a heated 40 or 60 degree short 45 min - 1 hour wash with half a dose of detergent.
• Wash on a 40 degree (maximum 60 degree) cycle with full dose of detergent.
• 1400 maximum spin speed
• Tumble on low if needed but do not tumble anything with PUL (waterproof layer)
• Keep away from direct heat sources such as radiators
• Avoid nappy creams except those approved for cloth.
• Bleach and softener should never be used.
