do you wash pre-loved?

Postby fleur08 » Fri Jul 17, 2009 3:55 pm

ok, maybe an odd question, i know my views on it but other half thinks im odd so would like your views!

i had a couple of pre-loved nappies arrive, opened them to have a look & put to one side to wash later.
emilie needed her bum changing so the other half got 1 of the pre-loved to put on her as it was nearest to him, i said no i need to wash them.he said not to bother as they have obviously already been washed -no-one is going to send a dirty nappy through the post, and said i was being fussy !!!

what do you think? am i fussy/odd or what !?

We don't have any pre-loved nappies but I would wash them before I used them, simply because Barney has quite sensitive skin so I'd want to know that they'd been washed in our washing stuff. I'm sure no one would send an unwashed nappy, but I suppose if they had been sitting unused for a bit it would be worth washing them to get rid of any dust as well.

I don't wash preloved fluff, but if the LOs had sensitive skin I would!

I usually wash before putting a pre-loved nappy on Iris. Just because then I know she won't have a reaction to any other washing powder.

I never used to but Kaydi had a bad reaction once, so I wash them now.

I usually throw them in the nappy bucket and wash them in with the next load. I don't put on a wash specially for them. Saying that, I have used some without washing them again :wink:
