Hi girls, think i may need to strip wash my nappies, i mostly use itti's and bambooty. When my son has been wearing them for an hour they smell awful of wee but they don't need to be changed as he has not out weed them. Do you think they may need a strip wash, if so how do i do this. Thank you Lorraine.
Thanks for your reply. I used to wash them in ariel non bio, but just changed to persil non bio liquid lifts stains way better.. They go on a rinse first then 40 wash then 2x rinses and line dry. He is cutting some teeth at the mo too so this could be the problem, pee smells so strong. Thank you for your help. Lorraine
so probably best to be using non bio powder on my nappies then??? What do you use yourself?? Going to do the dishwasher tablet in the washing machine for the strip wash and see how that goes. Thanks for your help. Lorraine.
Most people find that bio powder is the best for washing nappies - it's what I use. I usually use Ariel and only put about half of the manufacturers recommended amount of powder into the drawer. This has always got my nappies lovely and clean and cuts build up and residue to a minimum.
I've never used the dishwasher tablet method to strip wash nappies (although some people swear by it). I simply use a full dose of powder, do a cold wash followed by a hot wash (60 degrees) and then keep repeating the rinse cycle until I can no longer see bubbles in the machine.
Exactly what Claire said. Bio works best. I too have only done a strip wash with a full dose of powder on cold wash, then 60 wash no powder, then rinse, rinse, rinse. Do whatever method you think you would like to do though so some people swear by the washing up liquid or the dishwasher tab.
