I put a couple of my light-coloured Flip covers in with a load of mixed washing (I had previously only handwashed them) and they've come out looking dull/discoloured
The two on the left are the ones that I washed, the ones on the right are the same colour but brand new (noodle and butternut). It's not a very good pic but in real life they kind of look greyer/duller than the new ones.
It's not the end of the world or anything but I'm a bit annoyed as I deliberately washed the butternut separately from my nappies in case the colour bled, as the instructions recommend. Does that mean I have to handwash them from now on? Probably better for them anyway but I'm rather lazy
