Friend of mine gave birth to twins yesterday, cloth from the start. She's asking for any tips to clean off the meconium. I didn't use cloth from day 1 unfortunatly so no idea! Thanks. :thumbsup:

I didn't do anything special, just put the nappies in the bucket as usual and transferred to the machine when the bucket was full. I found bf poo stains worse than meconium TBH.

I used 1/3 of a soft paper liner in the early days of meconium and bf poo as I was still getting used to the whole thing.

I didn't do anything special - just rinsed them if they were really bad, then bunged them in the bucket and then the machine. As others have said, I found BF poo stains much harder to get out than mec.

From your post it's more like getting the poo off the nappy than stains, is that right? Liners help, we used fleece liners, but TB paper ones are lovely and soft and they are flushable, so easy to get rid of it!

I used fleece liners and you can dunk in the loo and flush ( hold on!) to get rid of any.
I don t remember doing anything special though.
