    Default Ok i have bought some cloth- now what????

    Hi there!!

    Long time sposie user here- i have a three week old DD and in hospital they supplied flat cloth to use- since being home DD has aquired a not so nice nappy rash- so i have bought a dozen flat cloth nappies to have a go...

    SO.... when i wash them- do i need to do anything special- use any special stuff or will my baby sensitive washing liquid do? do i need to soak them first if they are just wee'd on or only poo-ey ones???

    Any tips on covers or liners or the like???

    TIA!!!

    First question: what have you bought?

    Depending on what you've bought will depend on the washing style.

    ETA: ooops, missed the part where you said you bought flats lol. So, what Mel said

    Ok so you've got flats? No need to soak them, I never do, I just dry pail them and then wash them. However, I have 2 in cloth so I do a load every day. If you only have the one in cloth it might work out that you do it every 2 days.

    No special liquid, I actually don't use any liquid, just a bit of canestan rinse. The sun will fade out the stains for you.

    As for covers - I like maz covers and motherease rikki covers the best.

    Canestan you can get from the supermarket - just in the washing liquid section, usually right next to the dettol rinse. Our woolies here has it on the bottom shelf.

    I second the Canesten liquid. I even use it on DH's socks to reduce the bacteria/smell.
