Fluff, and not the nice kind!

Postby aimeet » Tue Mar 20, 2012 9:26 am

I have noticed more bits of fluff collecting in the elasticated areas of my nappies. At the moment I pick it off but this is very time consuming and annoying. It seems to collect mainly on minkee and fleece. What can I do to stop it and why is it happening?

We have this I assumed it was from tumbling.

we get this too, I think it is fibers coming off the rest of the nappy wash and sticking and fluff from daily wear (clothes and dust) that gathers too. I find whatever was in the machine before the nappy wash can make a big difference to the luff in the elastic

Gently stretch the elastic out and use a lint roller / sellotape to clean it off. Takes seconds x

I don't tumble either. Must be from washing.
I tried sellotape but found gaffa tape worked better. Although that left some sticky stuff on one of my nappies :(
