Softening up minkee?

Postby 0_Lisa_0 » Mon Jul 27, 2009 11:51 am

I've got some BB minkee's that are feeling a little on the stiff side, is there any way of making the minkee soft again and can anyone tell me why it happens? I thought detergent build up maybe? I've tried giving it a good rub down but it hasnt made much difference :( I love my BB and I don't want to get rid but they deffinately need some life breathing back into them.

they are pre-loved so I have no idea what they have been washed with and unfortuntely I don't have a tumble dryer but I could always borrow one I suppose lol. May also have to look at getting some Bold for nappy washing.
