Washing liners with 'solid' poo

Postby ksemro » Thu Dec 23, 2010 3:26 pm

Ok so my seven month old has just started doing proper poos - not totally solid but I'm sure you know what I mean. Do we need to get the poo off the cloth liner and nappy before washing ? If so does anyone have tips? It's pretty gooey stuff! We have been just washing it all so far and that's been fine. Don't know if it matters but she's breastfed and we're doing baby-led-weaning.

Also what's the best way to wash a silk liner that's been poo covered like this?

Thanks!

Not sure on the best way with silk liners as i've never used them. But I shake the poo off into the loo, if its a bit sticky then I flush and rinse in the force of the water. If its really sticky then I hose it off with the shower. Mine are never totally clean when they go into the machine :wink:

Ben's always had very sticky poos! So I find the best way to deal with his is to stretch the shower head from the bath over the toilet and spary his nappies. It worked brilliantly. If your shower doesn't reach to the toilet, you can put a bucket in the bath, rinse the nappies off in there and then pour it into the toilet.

I also do a cold rinse in the washer before I do the main wash to try to rinse off any last bits.

I always try and get the majority of poo off, then either rinse in the loo or the bath, but the shower is a good idea, then I bleach the bath etc.

I also do a rinse and spin before the main wash x

I dip in the toilet water if it's a particually bad one then sling in the nappy bucket as normal, seems to work better for me than holding in the flush, plus I get fed up of waiting until I can flush again, and again, and again..... :wink:

I use a knife scrape the worst off, pop liner and nappy in bucket, flush poo away and hold knife in flush to rinse off poo. give a quick spray with anti bac spray wipe off and store knife out of sight and reach. works a treat for me :)

Not sure about silk liners but when we have used fleece liners and the poo is very sticky i leave the whole nappy as is in the 2nd nappy bucket. I tip it into the toilet at the same time as i deal with the next nappy It always rolls off after its sat there for a little while.

ETA :oops: That sounds really gross :giggle:
