Renting baby clothes FAQ

How long can I keep the clothes?

However long you like! We know babies grow as fast as the weather changes, so just send back items whenever you no longer have a need for them.

You can return all the clothes at once, or just a few items you no longer need and keep the rest. We will pro rata your subscription payments so you only pay for what you have.

What about stains?!

Don't panic! Let us worry about the stains. Stain insurance is included. Obviously it's best to prevent stains if you can, or treat them as soon as possible. But we will never charge you.

How do I take care of the clothes?

Just as you would your other clothes. Wash at 30 and line dry if possible to help keep your carbon footprint down and prolong the life of each item. No need to wash before you return to us though as all the clothes are cleaned on return.

What happens to clothes that are damaged?

First of all we will always try to repair any damage and remove any stains. If the garment can't be saved, it will be upcycled or recycled. Nothing ever goes to landfill.

How are the clothes cleaned?

Washing and drying is a large part of the carbon footprint of clothes so we try and reduce this by cleaning our clothes in an environmentally friendly way, whilst ensuring the highest standards. Powered by renewable electricity, we use wet cleaning (never dry cleaning) with eco-friendly non-bio detergents and stain removers. So you can be certain there are no nasty chemicals next to your baby's skin.

I'm pregnant, can I preorder?

Yes! Just email us at hello@borro-it.com and we can arrange this. You will be able to select all the clothes you want in advance and we will send them to you two weeks before your due date, at which point your subscription will start. 

How much is delivery?

Delivery is £2.99 which pays for shipping the order to you plus a free pre-paid returns label for you to return the items.

When do I start paying?

On checkout you will pay your first monthly subscription payment plus the £2.99 shipping cost. Your future monthly payments will be made on the same day each month, without the shipping cost.

Order packed and ready

How soon will my order arrive?

Your order will be packed and dispatched the next working day. Delivery takes 2-3 working days.

How do I return them?

Pop them inside the bag they came in, attach the free pre-paid returns label, then drop off at your nearest Hermes ParcelShop.

We only include one pre-paid returns label per order, so if you choose to send just some of an order back and the rest later, you will need to pay for the postage of the second return. 

Once we've received your items we will amend your subscription so you only pay for what you've got.

How do I get new clothes?

You can order new clothes at any time. Just add to your basket and checkout.

You don't need to return your previous order to rent new clothes.

If you have returned your previous clothes, you'll be set up with a completely new subscription. If you still have some clothes and you're adding new ones, we will amend your monthly subscription cost depending on when you make the order:

  • You will pay for the new items when you order them.
  • If your next regular payment date is more than two weeks away, your subscription amount will be increased to include the new order.
  • If your next regular payment date is less than two weeks away, your subscription amount won't be increased until the following payment. For example:
1 January - £30 regular payment made
2 January - new item ordered worth £1.50. £1.50 paid + shipping.
1 February - £31.50 new regular payment made

OR

1 January - £30 regular payment made
25 January - new item ordered worth £1.50. £1.50 paid + shipping.
1 February - £30 regular payment made
1 March - £31.50 new regular payment made

Can I gift a subscription?

Yes, great idea! You can buy a gift card here. This is a one off payment and you will receive a gift card code which you can send to your recipient. They can redeem this against any subscription.

Can I buy clothes if I want to keep them?

Sorry, no. We want lots of families to benefit from each item in order to minimise the carbon footprint. You'll always have the photos of your little one in their gorgeous clothes and your loft space will thank you!

How do I cancel my subscription?

You can cancel your subscription at any time by logging onto your account, or emailing us at hello@borro-it.com. You will then need to return all the clothes to us.

Do the clothes fit cloth nappies?

Some clothes are a better fit for cloth nappies than others. You'll find this is in the description for each item. Bear in mind that for things like bodysuits, you might want to choose a size larger to fit around that gorgeous cloth bum! 

Are your clothes really sustainable?

We only stock brands that have sustainability at their core. We will only ever rent organic cotton and other sustainable materials like bamboo. For more info see Our brands page.
