WWYD?

Postby Isla'smum » Mon Jun 28, 2010 11:03 am

DD2 is a champion weer and pooer and her poo seems to stain everything (not even sun makes a difference) :( I have a HUGE stash of nappies for her that seems to be in a constant state of flux, and a lot of them are now stained to high heaven - would you sell the unstained ones whilst you can still sell them/get a good price for them? Or would you keep them (I am pg with #3 and don't know what flavour it is :wink: )?

I'd wait to see what your "flavour" is :giggle: if it turned out to be a boy i would sell on the unstained girly ones and keep anything GN. Although if you were honest about the staining I'm sure someone out there would still buy them.

Congratulations on being :pregnant:

How long are you giving them in the sun? I've had a couple of nappies that needed 2 or 3 days to get rid of the stains, but it did work eventually - just keep them damp with a spray bottle or run them under the tap occasionally!

Unless you need the funds, I'd probably hang onto the good ones for the moment; if you want to keep them nice you could put them away for a while, and if you do decide to sell when you find out what kind of bean you're having they should fetch the same in a few weeks/months as they would now :giggle:

I would hang on to them if I was you. Like Rachel said, keep trying the sun, but I don't mind stains on nappies if the nappy is in good condition otherwise (like elastic/ poppers all still functional etc) as long as I know when I buy it, so I think they would sell anyway. I would definitely wait until you know if you can use them on no. 3 :D

Is there anything GN in your current stash :giggle: :wink:

I find a looong time in the line makes a difference - two overnights when you know it's going to be sunny/frosty - with the current forecast might be worth a punt. My nappies are not looking to bad, but when Joe was pooing in every night nappy they looked a bit grim. Washing over time and lots of sunshine seems to have made a difference.

What about minky liners?

Are you hanging them out wet & keeping them wet? For the sun to work properly they need to be wet, hth :D

I would keep the 'good' ones for the next LO as you won't quite make back what you originally paid and you could then have some really nice nappies for your new baby :D
