Leaking Weenotions PUL wraps

Postby Allie » Tue Apr 22, 2008 5:57 pm

Hi All

I'm having major leaking problems with my 2 weenotions wraps at the mo. They're only a few months old and they are leaking through the PUL not just wicking at the edges. I've tried blasting them in the tumble drier to reset the PUL but that hasn't worked. Does anyone have any other suggestions?

Please, please helps as it's making me very sad as i'm having to use my old boring wraps instead of my super pretty ones :oops:

Thanks

Allie

Apparently, nikwax for clothes does the job a treat - there's TX Direct spray on or TX Direct wash in. The spray costs around £7 or £8.

Haven't done it myself but could point you in the direction of people who have.....

Allie, the PUL shouldn't have gone that quickly so I'm sure it's fixable. Surprised the hot tumble didn't work but the other thing you can try is washing it in a load with fabric softener, this gives the pul a coating. Hope you get it sorted out!

You don't use vinegar in the wash with them do you? I have heard it is bad for PUL.

Nope, never use anything other than non bio...
