We get many requests from practitioners and parents on the best approach to cleaning the bed-pads after each training program, so we have put a short video together to show how it is cleaned. During that time the bed-pad is in use as part of the training program wiping with a cloth nightly is necessary. After the training and when the child has become dry, we find that it is the scrubbing of the bed-pad that cleans it rather than just wiping it with a cloth. It is also important to keep the plug ends out of the solution you are washing it with.
To clean it you can use detergent in water or a cleaner such as 2.8% Benzalkonium Chloride and mix as per instructions eg., 100mL to 5 litres of water. You also need to select a good quality nail brush as shown in the video. After the bed-pad has been cleaned and air dried it can be rolled up with the braid on the outside, wrap the cord around it and put back into its cover.
