Urine is pooling on the top of the liner and not absorbing. What should I do?

  • Updated

This can happen if the liner fabric is clogged with detergent from not being fully rinsed when washed. For a more in depth explanation for why this is happening, you can read here.


There are a couple things you can try to resolve this.

  1. Make sure your washing machine water flow level is high enough that it is able to get to all of the liner.
  2. Use our deep cleaning method. We recommend doing this once every 2 months.


Here are the steps for deep cleaning your GuineaDad Liners.

  1. Flip the pocket so it is inside out.
  2. If you have a tub, plug the drain and turn on the water to either cold or warm water. 
  3. If you don’t have a tub, you can use one of the large buckets that you find in most hardware stores. 5 gallon buckets work well. 
  4. Fill the water high enough in either the tub or bucket so the liner can be fully soaked.
  5. Let soak overnight.
  6. After soaking, wring the liner out as much as you can.
  7. Place your soaked liners in your washing machine and follow normal washing instructions, which you can find here.
