Bubbles in the post rinse - not good?

Postby busybee » Sat Oct 24, 2009 10:20 pm

I'm looking at my nappies in the machine and there are bubbles in the extra rinse cycle, they've already been wahsed and rinsed once. That's not good is it? What should I do?

I would just keep rinsing until there are no bubbles

It isn't necessarily a problem unless you are noticing that the nappies smell - a build up of detergent in the nappies can react with the wee and cause bad smells, in which case a strip wash is usually required. But if they don't smell and you aren't having any problems with absorbency then I wouldn't worry about it.

I give ours an extra 2 rinses and sometime a 3rd short rinse just to make sure, we have a relly good machine though so it isn't really necessary, I just like to be extra sure so madame doesn't get a sore botty
