The Rikki wrap is velcro fastening whereas the Airflow is popper, it also has flaps which will hold a prefold or terry folded into an oblong. Just as reliable on fabric waterproofness and durability as the Motherease Air Flow.

XLarge – 35-45lb/15.9 – 10.5kg
Our Opinion – Another wonderful wrap from motherease which is made to the same high standard and comes with their patented (almost!) leak proof binding.
Our Tips – xsmall and small wraps will fit the same size baby however the xsmall is cut from less cloth. Buy xsmall if you are using with newborn nappies or prefolds and want a trim fit, buy the small if you are using with regular size 1 or onesize nappies. Both are great either way! Remember you only need 1 wrap per every 3 to 5 nappies as you can use a wrap again without washing if it is not soiled. The velcro must be shut off during the wash, the Rikki does not have washing tabs so a good idea is to close the velcro tabs like you were doing up the wrap and then turn the wrap inside out to wash.
Care instructions – Machine washable at 40ºC or up to 60ºC. Can be tumble dried on low heat but hang drying will increase longevity. This wrap hang dries very quickly as it is lightweight and contains no absorbent material so I would recommend you never tumble dry.
Care of Motherease Wraps – PLEASE READ
The binding on the Motherease wraps are the reason they are so fabulously waterproof so it’s important to treat the binding with respect and make sure it can’t get caught on velcro etc in the wash. When washing your Motherease wraps place them in a mesh washing bag separate from anything that could catch on the binding like Velcro to keep them in excellent and reliable condition. Motherease have very specific washing and detergent requirements, so please see below. Motherease are saying their wraps will only last for one baby and will need to be replaced for each subsequent child.
Helpful Notes and Hints From The Manufacturers
Waterproof Covers – Use over cloth diapers to prevent leakage. Can usually be used 3 to 4 times before washing, provided they aren’t soiled.
Line Dried Diapers – simplify a messy diaper clean up. It installs to your toilet’s water supply in 5 easy minutes.
How to Prevent Odors and Staining with the Dry Pail System – Important: to avoid odors from setting into fabrics when using Dry Pail Method, do not leave diapers sitting in a closed pail for days at a time. Diapers should be able to breathe. Use a vented diaper pail and a breathable mesh pail liner to encourage air circulation. At the end of each day used diapers stored without pre-soaking should be run through a rinse and spin or equivalent machine cycle. Rinsed diapers can be returned to the pail or ideally spread/hung to dry. Remember set odors are difficult to remove.
Diaper Stains – Rinse soiled diapers promptly in the toilet using a diaper sprayer to minimize stains. Flushable Diaper Liners or Stay Dry Liners will also help. Should you have a tough stain, apply Laundry Miracle directly to the stain and gently rub until the stain has lifted. Repeat if necessary.
Hot Water – ensure more hot water gets to your machine by running the hot water tap nearest your machine until water is hot.
Creams – Sticky barrier creams used to help prevent diaper rash can leave residues making diapers water repellent. Flushable Diaper Liners will help prevent residue from accumulating on diapers.
Flushable Diaper Liners – To simplify the clean up of soiled diapers, flushable paper and bamboo liners may be laid into the diapers.
Diaper Rash – A number of factors can cause diaper rashes. The first thing to try is more frequent diaper changes. Should the problem persist, run another final rinse cycle and add a cup of white vinegar.
*Mother ease does not recommend the use of oxygenated products (hydrogen peroxide – OxyClean), chlorides (bleach), fluorides, peroxides nor any harsh solvents (sodium percarbonate). Do not rinse diapers in toilets containing automatic toilet bowl cleaners. Use of these products will cause fabric disintegration on all natural fibers evidenced by balding spots throughout one or all layers of diaper and will adversely affect product longevity.
Laundry Detergent Disclaimer*
Mother ease does not recommend the use of boutique type detergents due to customer complaints. These include (but are not limited to) Charlies Soap, Allens Naturally, Nellies Soda, Rockin Green, Country Save, Laundry Tarts, any type of soap nuts, 7th Generation Soap, and Ecos.
Mother ease does not recommend any homemade detergents. Fat deposits from soap can accumulate in the diapers layers and cause water repellency.
Do not use laundry detergent products containing sodium percarbonate, hydrogen peroxide (oxygen bleach) or optical brighteners. These ingredients are often listed. When combined with uric acid and ammonia a reaction occurs causing natural fibers to dissolve. These ingredients are also harsh on diaper covers and cover binding.
Note: Oversized large waterproof (nylon coated or PUL laminated) diaper pail liners should not be washed with cloth diapers. Due to the large size, they restrict water movement, interfere with effective detergent removal during rinse cycles and impede water extraction during the spin cycles.
