Bumgenius colour run

Postby lindaloo1971 » Thu May 13, 2010 9:57 pm

Can anyone help? I have my second one in cloth and have moved from bamboo fitteds to Bumgenius V3.I was completely hooked after trialling a friends. I stuck to all the prewash instructions but the bolds have run - mainly into the laundry tabs but are now leaking into the inserts so all of them look a dirty blue/green. I have now read that the bold colours do run. Has anyone managed to remove the colour run? Do they just continue to leak colour - they have now been used for 3 weeks and am sure were worse last night than ever. Cheers

My older pale colours have never run, but I did notice that the few brights I bought have run into the loop part of the laundry tabs :-?

my bright pink one's ran and the inserts came out pink, but after a few washes they stopped and my inserts are no longer pink, they have gone a bit greyish but i'm guessing that's pretty normal after a years use, those colour catchers sound like a good idea

Thanks. have looked on line and it appears colour run into the laundry tabs is common with the brights, bumgenius have come back to me saying that colour run is known about. I have been using the colour catcher sheets they come out clean. I think the main problem is direct contact of the stretchy side tabs with the laundry tabs. Wonder if this is why the brights are being taken off?

my blue and pink bold ones ran into the tabs but never the inserts. Hasn't come out either after nearly a year!
