OMG my inserts have got mildew!!!!!!

Postby gilbertandmartha » Thu Jun 17, 2010 6:04 am

Where from????? :x :x :x :x :x its seems to be only one nappy, I noticed a brownish colour on the nappy in the elastic and on some inserts the other day but thought nothing of it. Lachlan had it on overnight the night before last. I've just put it in the wash this morning and its all brown :x :x :x

But stupid me (been up since 4am) just put it in with all the others..... will they get infected????????????

I would't have thought it would spread to the others if you do a hot wash but no expert i'm afraid

The others will be fine. The mildew will wash off but you may find it stains a bit, nothing to worry about x

I did a bit of a search on mildew stains on here, and found out that calpol stains.... and Lachlan is almost hooked up to it intravenously at the moment, so maybe thats the problem :giggle:

I had the same problem with a couple of my fitteds last week and asked the same questions! :) I thought it was mildew too, they were brown! :-? They were only worn at night too- they've been in the sun ever since!!

I was going to say that brown isn't mildew - mildew is black spots...

Calpol and other medication causes stains as do various veggies e.g. brocolli can cause stains...

I've got mine in a bucket of milton, and I'll pop the coloured ones in the sun.
