Gah- pink nappy wash!

Postby e586 » Tue Sep 20, 2011 12:14 pm

Just pulled my nappies out after they'd washed this morning and they're pink!!! There was nothing red in there, just a light pink pair of leggings that Natalie had wet- they'd been washed for months though and aren't dark at all so can't see how they'd run?!?!?!? I've washed worse with nappies and it's been fine. Washed on 40 too. Not happy as I needed to dry my night nappies for tonight and now instead I have to try and find a colour catcher and sort them out. All my Easyfits, Ittis, WNNN.... they're pink! :doh: :doh:

Needed to wash clothes too, but too scared in case there's something in the machine that did it (was wondering if a pen/crayon had snuck in but door seal is clear) so have tea towels in as a test.

:hug: I've done that before, I had to get some dye remover and wash through twice to get it all out :roll: FC you manage to sort it soon.

Hope you manage to save them, I had that happen with a white top with red flower pattern on it, it had been washed loads and never ran then one day it came out of the wash pink with red flowers :roll:

they're in on a full cold wash and a colour catcher so fingers crossed it works! Have found a lone pull up floating in the back of a drawer so can use that for Ryan tonight with some cloth boosting under a soaker. Thankfully I have nappies dry for Lucas to wear tonight and it's not a nursery day tomorrow as I'm short on Easyfits for Ryan!

I bought some dye remover from Tesco, maybe give that a go?
