Thank you. I'm new to this and learning fast! Hopefully not the hard way.

Shall I tumble dry (low heat) or air dry? Was hoping to use them tonight on dd1

They will be fine. As Amanda says liquid is ok to use, it just builds up in your machine more than powder in my experience.

ah x-posted, Bold is actually ok to use with nappies

If you usse the dryer don't put pockets in there or you can melt the PUL. Dry other nappies on low as bamboo can be frazzled on a high heat :wink:

I was just going to say rinse rinse rinse, like others have said...

a few months ago I accidentally put the nappies on a 90C wash... PUL, MF, everything! I meant to do a rinse, but on the dial on our washing machine, '90C' is next to 'rinse' and I hadn't turned it far enough! I thought to myself the rinse was taking a really long time, and then realised what I'd done. At that point we only had enough nappies for 2 loads in the washing machine so literally half our nappies were in there... I thought I was going to have to re-stash :giggle: They came out fine, and we are still using them, think once in while it won't hurt to wash them 'wrong'.
