Lifespan of BG?

Postby Frances » Thu Jan 28, 2010 6:04 pm

I've had incidents with wee and poo leaking through BG twice now. Actually through the nappies itself. I haven't tried giving them a hot tumble yet, but think they've probably reached their natural lifespan now - I bought them preloved eighteen months ago and they have been used twice a week since. Would you chuck, or tumble and wait to see if they leak again?

I'd probably give them one last chance to prove themselves, chuck them in the dryer and see how they go. If they leak again, it might be time to throw them away.

It's meant to reset PUL

Worth a try Frances, if it doesn't work you haven't lost anything, just make sure you use them when your in the house and it's easy to sort if they do leak!

Thanx. That does make sense thinking about it. :)

Didn't know that either - my BG's are 14 months in on constant use so I'll remember that :)
