I would put them on a rinse and then wash as normal. I've never soaked.

I always rinse a bad nappy off if it can't go in the machine in the next couple of hours, but no I never soak them. And I always run a cold rinse cycle on them before I wash them :wink:

Kieren has been the same lately and tbh i just put them in the wetbag and then wash them...I always do a seperate rinse before setting the machine to wash and if they are particularly bad then i do 2 rinses and then a wash (always wash at 60c).

I make sure that i empty the filter on my machone regularly too as it gets nasty :-?

ETA to clarrify i do a cold rinse then wash at 60c.

I always do a cold rinse on my nappies, especially for those nasty ones! Getting them out on the line in the sun should help with any staining too. Kate
