40 is fine!
I do the odd 60 wash every now & again, but 40 is my regular nappy wash temp!

40 is our normal too with the occasional 60 :-) sometimes stains are left at either temp but the sun soon sorts that. 40 is much kinder to pul!

40 is perfect. Did you do a cold prewash too?

Yup, we mostly wash nappies at 40, with a cold pre wash. I will wash at 60 if there has been a stomach bug etc in the house, or the nappies are particularly miserable, but the sun sorts out any stains.

I was at 40 too as 60 can damage the nappies. I very occasionally do a 60 for my fitteds if they are getting stinky (I think twice in 2 years) but I always do two rinses after the wash and haven't had to strip them since.
