I am just trying out a few various nappies before I buy some more pocket nappies. I used to always use Motherease One size with my last child and I stil love them, but want to try some pocket nappies this tme round.
What I can't get, is that all these pocket nappies from Bum Genius to the Ebay nappy, all have to have cool washes at 30 degrees (BG say they can be washed hotter but advise against it). Can anyone advise me or tell me their thoughts on a 30 degree wash and hygiene with nappies? Usually previous advise has been to wash hot or 40 degrees at the lowest!
We have always washed our nappies at 40C with no problems. We have used a mixture of Fuzzis, BumGenius, Wonderoos v1+2, Easyfits v2, Nature Babies and WNOS. Most of our stash is Wonderoo v1s and their washing instructions say 40 so I've always washed everything at that temp. Didn't realise the other ones say 30, maybe they are trying to be more energy efficient?!
we are washing our nappies usually at 40, sometimes 50degree. All, fitted, aios and pockets. And all fine, includnig BG. When the nappies start getting a bit smelly, i wash them at 70degree, and so far no problem. FOr some reason, i don;t belive in clean nappies washed at 30deg. esp pooey ones But maybe i;m wrong
Okay, brilliant! This is as I thought, they must be hotter.I have always washed my Motherease on hot. But its so odd that so many of the washing instructions say 30 degrees. I have asked the questions, and I gather its because they won't stay waterproof for long if washed hotter! In other words, the hotter washes will dramatically shorten the life of the nappy.
Anyone had any problems with this? I gather certainly the Chinese Ebay nappies are all wash cold or 30 degrees!
