Pockets & conditioner

Postby fluffycabbage » Sun Feb 14, 2010 7:25 am

Can i use conditioner on pockets? Would it be detrimental to the fabrics? Or un-waterproof them in some way? TIA

I think it would effect the fabric closest to the skin as in coat the fibres and not let the wee through to the inserts.

Yep it does affect fleece. Some people wash their fleece wraps/flongies etc with conditioner to make them more water resistant so I definitely wouldn't use it with pockets.
