Maxi v Quickdry

Our 2 best selling nappies – the Superwetter Quickdry and Original Cotton Superwetter aka ContiSlip Maxi (patent pending); here in adult M but available in all sizes, infant to adult XL.

So what’s the difference and which is for you?

The Original Cotton Superwetter/ContiSlip is a super thirsty (<2.5l) workhorse of a nappy. With securely sewn in multi layer hourglass core, staydry microfleece inner and hook & loop fastening, it’s an easy to use nappy that pops on or off like a disposable.
The built in core offers all round absorbency making it great for side sleepers & wrigglers and there’s no tucking or folding requiring making it easy to use for those with mobility issues or unsteady hands. May however take longer to dry after washing.

The Quickdry version features naturally antibacterial bamboo outer with staydry inner & leak guards for security. The thirsty absorbent core, in the form of a foldable trifold, is fully removable for easier and quicker washing/drying.
Don’t be fooled though, they can take up to 3 inserts each folded to your requirements, making it a versatile option for day or night.

What makes Blanken Care & Snuggleblanks nappies & pads stand out from the rest?

It’s been a while since I posted on here, so busy have I been at the sewing machine.

But, it’s a new year, my little ones are becoming every more independent and so I’m more determined than ever to promote the benefits of reusables.

Today we’ll focus on our best selling ContiSlip Light.

Read on to find out more…

1) Firstly, they’re extremely soft, made from ecofriendly & extra thirsty bamboo terry and staydry microfleece against the skin. (Bamboo itself has naturally antibacterial properties and is extremely fast growing making it a sustainable source of fabric)

2) Each nappy contains gently elasticated leak guards ensuring a snug and safe fit.

3) a)The pull out cotton core can be folded and adjusted to suit your exact needs. Front sleeper? Tuck more absorbency to the front of the nappy. Side sleeper? Spread the wings of the trifold to add even more absorbency to the bamboo over the hip area.

b) oh…and the fact its pull-out-able means the whole thing dries much quicker, either on the line or in the dryer.

4) Our nappies are available in 8 sizes, from tiddler to adult, meaning we’ve something for everyone. (See Snuggleblanks for children’s sizes)

5) A nappy can contain an astonishing 1.5 and 2.5 litres (*according to size) and last up to 12 hours, giving all night comfort and dryness.

6) Whether you want colour or calm, our waterproof wraps are available in a range of prints – plain or patterned.

7) Looked after they can last 200+ washes so whilst initial investment may seem high, you’ll start to save money within weeks (and think of how much you’ll be saving from landfill).

8) Every Snuggleblanks / Blanken Care nappy has been carefully designed and crafted by a mum who was desperate to find a suitable nappy for her own autistic daughter, so we really do understand your needs.

9) We’ve been clinically trialled! Our products have been tried and tested by prostate cancer patients and proven to be effective. We’re now involved in an ongoing project which will hopefully make reusables more widely available to all.

Why do I need a separate waterproof cover?

Q : ‘Why do I need a separate waterproof cover with Blanken Care’s ContiSlip & ContiSlip Light? Why can’t the waterproof layer be built in?’

In short, you don’t always and it can…

Lots of other nappies on the market- child & adult – are what we call ‘all in ones’ or ‘pockets’
This means they’re essentially a shell, often comprised of synthetic, non or low absorbency material, into which can be placed absorbent inserts of your choice.

Sounds ideal?

Well…yes, they’re very easy to use, quick to dry and convenient. Great for daytime use certainly. We use them for our kids and change regularly

However, unlike our ContiSlip range (also known as Superwetters and Superwetter Quickdry at our sister site Snuggleblanks), they don’t offer all round high absorbency especially at the sides, which makes our ContiSlips ideal for heavy wetting night time fidgeters & side sleepers.

The natural fibre structure of the ContiSlips & Lights means moisture can be absorbed and dissipated all the way round the nappy, whilst the soft inner microfleece keeps skin dry.

The nappy itself contains inner leak guards, which guide moisture towards the pull out cotton core.
A breathable waterproof wrap over the top, with elasticated legs then keeps everything securely contained.

By comparison a pocket/all in one rarely has absorbency to the sides and no additional barrier against leaks.

In summary, if you’re fed up with damp beds regularly changing and want a long lasting, high absorbency solution, then it’s worth a try- child or adult.

Did you know…

… it takes hundreds and hundreds of years for one disposable nappy break down?

… if you stacked a year’s worth of disposable nappies one on top of the other, they’d create a tower as tall as Nelson’s Column?

…reusable nappies can save you hundreds, if not thousands of pounds?

…that reusable nappies are as easy to fit and use as disposables?

…there are now reusables for all ages – infant, child and adult, for day use, night use and in the pool?

Why not make a change?

Coping with incontinence – Superwetter Quickdry & ContiSlip Light

Many people come to us looking for something to cope with nocturnal enuresis and heavy bedwetting.

We offer several products to manage this condition, but we’ll focus tonight on our bestseller:

**The Superwetter Quickdry & Wrap (also known as the Contislip Light for adults)**

This features an absorbent bamboo terry shell, with stay-dry microfleece inner against the skin, and inner leak guards to guide flow and aid containment, just as in a disposable. The legs and back are gently elasticated to ensure a snug fit.

Into the elasticated pocket at the back you can insert as many foldable brushed cotton inserts as required. One is ideal for trim daytime use, however each nappy will contain up to three inserts for extremely heavy wetters.
Most people find two is sufficient for moderate to heavy wetters. In infant sizes this gives containment of around 1 -1.5 litres, reaching an astonishing 2.5 – 3 litres for larger sizes.

The Quickdry is shaped similar to a disposable and fastens with hook and loop tabs, again not unlike a disposable. These tabs also feature laundry tabs which can be folded back when washing to reduce the chance of tangling.

Over the Quickdry nappy we recommend using one of our wraparound waterproof wraps with PUL barrier and patterned outer.

Many people question why we recommend a two part system rather than an all in one nappy.
The answer is quite simple – security and containment.
Nightime leaks are perhaps the biggest quibble we encounter.
The Superwetter Quickdry and Wrap means leaks have to contend with two elasticated barriers.
Add this to the stay-dry inner and comprehensive absorbency and we’ve produced a system that can last around 12 hours in comfort with no leaks.

Available in infant sizes from around 12lbs right up to Adult XL (65″ waist approx)

Plush Pants or Paper Waste?

Let’s face it, anyone would prefer a comfortable cotton pair of pants over a pair of rustly paper knickers.

Why should it be any different to the number of folk living with light/moderate incontinence these days?

Our discreet and comfortable pullups are great daytime alternative to child or adult nappies and are available in a range of colours and prints.

With hidden waterproof (non rustle) barrier, stay-dry microfleece against the skin, and outer design of your choice, they also feature an inner pocket, into which you can insert as much as absorbency as you require.

(Standard insert included absorbs up to 1 litre, but more can be added)
