STUPID APLIX!

Postby skaheadpunk » Mon Sep 03, 2007 1:02 am

Yup, you heard me - STUPID APLIX! The only nappies I have with it now are my BG and my Blueberrys. There is a damn good reason for this. I really, REALLY didn't want my lovely nappies getting trashed by aplix in the wash - but it's happened!

I had two as part of this trial thing, and they have a massive aplix band across the front, huge sticky tabs, and no wash tabs. I tried doing them up inside out in the wash, but they came undone and both stuck to the PUL of my favourite Pocket Bot, which is now pretty manky looking TBH. I am not a happy bunny. I emailed Hilary on the off chance that she has any of that fabric around, but I bet I can't get another one :cry:

Stupid things.

So my free trial nappies have just cost me £8.50 worth of irreplaceable lovely pocket bot - and they really aren't working for us anyway.

Here it is in it's former glory - the way it would have wanted to be remembered :(

My pb like that is not looking healthy either. Josh has a water gun rechargable holder vest thing with a HUGE strip of aplix and Louis SAT on it :evil: :evil: :evil: It also got caught on some aplix so not well pleased :evil: :evil:

Grrr! how annoying, I definately favour poppers for this reason.

Hope you get another pocket bot that you love just as much :D

I know it's a bit late now but littlekiwi does applix laundry tabs which are ACE! I use them on my bamboozles as I found that their laundry tabs were always coming undone in the wash...

GRRR to the annoyance though!

My other suggestion as I am a cheapskate is to order some applix from Babeco. They do the hook and loop sides separately so you just order the loop bit and cut it to size. As Shevi pointed out - it is not as pretty as the Little Kiwi ones but cheaper :wink:
