Are Ellie Bub products stain resistant?

Ellie Bub Smocks, Messy Mats, Toddler Aprons and Wet Bags are made from 100% recycled polyester and are very hard wearing. Having said that they are not completely stain resistant. 9 times out of 10 they will come up good as new after a wash but there are some substances that are more difficult to remove or more likely to leave a permanent mark than others. Watercolour paint, pens, permanent markers or rich red foods such as bolognese or beetroot for example. The backing fabric is also not stain resistant. 

If your items do have a stubborn stain you can try the following:

  1. Firstly - always wash or wipe your item immediately after use for the best cleaning outcome
  2. Make a paste from laundry powder or stain remover and soak for 5 mins before washing
  3. Use 30 degree water rather than cold

All these washing techniques are not recommended for regular washing. For day to day washing please see our full care guide.

What is the size difference between the small and medium smocks?

Ellie Bub Smocks are generous sizes so they provide fantastic value for money and will last your little ones a long time. All babies and toddlers are different so whilst we generally recommend the small size for babies 6-12m and the medium size for toddlers 1-3yrs, it is strongly advised to follow the measurements over the age suggestions.

How many smocks will I need?

We recommend starting with 2 smocks to ensure you always have one available if the other is in the wash.

Are the wet bags really waterproof?

Look, if you tip an entire drink bottle in them they’ll probably leak. But when it comes to wet bathers, towels, soiled nappies, wet smocks, reusable wipes… you will find Ellie Bub wet bags hold it all without a leak! To ensure the waterproof lining remains in it’s strongest condition please follow our care guidelines.
