Non absorbant WN

Postby Kirstyh » Tue Jan 20, 2009 9:55 pm

Evening :idea:

One of my pre-loved WN isn't absorbing liquid, I did a strip wash today (did all my nappies as seemed a waste to do just one) and have just testd it with a bit of water and it is still just sitting on the top and not soaking through. Any suggestion on what to do? xx

I'm afraid I don't have a clue then, rash creams can make fleece repel, have you used any recently?

If it is a build-up of grease from creams you could try handwashing it in fairy liquid to remove the grease and then rinsing it loads before washing it as normal.

Maybe the person you bought it from had used rash cream, it's certainly worth a try!

I know people say it's not good for the elastin but I wonder if soaking in bicarb for a bit would help?????

bicarb as far as I know, is only for smells!

Soda crystals would be better!
