One wash, 4 nappies, elastic gone!

Postby gayleygoo » Sat Oct 10, 2009 9:56 pm

:x Ive just hung up the nappy wash and four of my pockets (3 bumgenius and a blueberry) have the elastic completely worn out! They were all fine before they went in the wash, and in decent condition otherwise. The wash wasn't any different than usual either :-?

Its not too bad I suppose, it shouldn't be too difficult to replace the elastic in those nappies (I hope) but until I eventually get around to doing it my stash is 4 nappies less! Has this happened to anyone else?!

:x Oh no! I've heard its quite common in BGs. I've only ever had it happen once to a FF and the lovely Hanna replaced the elastic for me. :D

It also happened in a WN a few months ago and Suzanne kindly fixed it for me :) Its just that these, although they've been used a fair bit, they haven't been heavily used so its annoying!! so it wouldn't be worth paying to have them fixed by a WAHM, but I'll have to give myself a kick up the bum to do it myself :giggle:

gaaah how annoying, and bizzare that they all went at the same time, should be super easy to replace the elastic in pockets though!

Odd, the only ones of mine that have ever gone were UD night nappies, all 3 of them..... but they ALL got replaced in a very quick time.
My old style WNSS leg elastic has gone but we still use it :oops:
