Yep that's what I'm going to do - fairy liquid standing by :lol:

Are the inners all the same colour? could it be a batch of minkee that has picked up more residue from the factory than normal?? X

I had the same problem with some cuddlesoft inners last year but a quick tumble worked for me.

Ive got this too with new nappies, but i think i bought too big as when i put them on they fit ok, but after leaking they have big gaping legs so i thought a size issue rather than the minkee x

Definately had this with a new nappy I had, leaked straight out the legs every time he weed because it didnt soak through. But after a few washes it did seem to improve :)

Update!!:

Well they're fixed!! Thankyou to you guys and also to the wahm who was absolutely fab and offered to re-make them with fleece if needed or refund me!! Fab CS :)

DH scrubbed them with fairy washing up liquid and rinsed as best he could, then I popped them in the machine with a normal nappy wash dose of detergent, and a cup of washing soda crystals and a ton of vinegar in the softner bit of the drawer :lol: then I rinsed about 5 times in the end I think :giggle: when the bubbles finally vanished but at least they're working now :wine: :happypixies:

SO: it would seem that mocha cuddlesoft is one of the worst for manufacturing residue but it's not unsolvable! Minkee seems ok though, just cuddlesoft really...

Thanks for the update ... I decided to go for a different colour just in case!
