BGs and other Qus!

Postby ems101 » Sun Feb 06, 2011 5:58 pm

Some one advised me what sort of inserts to buy to replace the MF ones, but I cant remember and we are leaking more frequently now, so can anyone remind me?! ALso, I wonder if its time to do a strip wash. We had the nappies about 8months. Should I do one now? How often for maintainence? Can you give me a step by step idiots guide to stripping?

Thanks!

I did use the microfibre ones but boosted with an Easy Peasy hemp.

I think if you don't get on with microfibre, bamboo+hemp is a good combination. I sometimes used Petit Dessous bamboo inserts for BGs too.

I only ever did a strip wash if the nappies were smelling after they were washed. I'm sure there's a thread for strip washing....will have a look.

Have a look under the 'Washing Cloth Nappies' section of the forum - lots of info there :wink:

Easy peasy do bamboo inserts too which are good.

Thanks, im going to try stripping with a dishwasher tab before buying more inserts. We actually use dishwasher powder, do you think we can use that instead of a tab?!
