Over the past week or so I've noticed that the leg elastic has gone in about 3 of our nappies! Hope this doesn't sound stupid but could it be something to do with the washing machine causing it? It's just strange that it's happened to 3 nappies at around the same time. Luckily so far it's only been boring nappies like Little Lambs etc but I'm worried if it keeps happening, that it'll happen to one of our nice nappies
One was older, the other two were pretty new. I just dry pail them and then chuck them all in the machine, I dont soak them or anything as I know that can cause damage... argh, I'm scared to wash our nice nappies now!
It does seem strange, I had a couple of UDs that had gone elastic (before I knew enough about cloth to realise tbh!) but never had the problem develop on any of mine and I dry pail, wash between 30 and 60 with biological powder or soap nuts. Sorry cant help more!
do you always hang them with the elastic over the 'bars' or line? I seem to remember someone having trouble with certain brands when they pegged them at the top so the weight of the nappy wet put extra strain on the elastic causing it to snap.
