I have only just found out that you shouldn't wash hemp with fleece till it has been washed 8 or so times! I have been washing my Brand new BBOS combo hemp/Mf inserts with the pockets - have I ruined them? I didn't know this at all!
I didn't know that either! Is it because the oils from the hemp can coat the fleece? If so, maybe a cold rinse with bicarb would help to strip any oils from the fleece? Like Kirsty said, though, I haven't had any probs.
I had heard that the oils in the hemp could coat your nappies and make them less absorbent but a) I have never had a problem and always washed everything together and b) it would wash out over time anyway so would be no lasting damage
Thank you! Somebody on another forum just scared me! I didn't even wash them seperatly for the first wash (I don't think, I can't really remember, I just shoved them in with whatever I was washing at the time).
