    Help! Save my stash!!

    *cries*
    My nappies have mold, not just little mouldy spots, full on growing hair!
    Can I save them?? Please, I don't want to have to get rid of my whole stash =*(
    And how do I prevent it? I haven't changed anything in last few months, except now I have 1 1/2 in cloth (quark full time, spock part).



    Please help

    My only advice is to wash them in nappysan or similar and hang out at night time and leave out for a couple days so the sun kills the spores.

    I don't remember having a problem when my girls were in nappies but we took the nappy off and placed it in a nappy bucket with water & nappysan or whatever it was we used. If the nappy was dirty we rinsed then put in the bucket.
    I washed everyday and just tipped the bucket into the machine, added water and detergent and did a normal wash.
    This was in the days of flat nappies ��

    Sorry, no other ideas

    Were you able to get your nappies clean?

    Clove oil diluted in water? Might need to do the bucket too and do a machine clean?

    Vinegar + tea tree oil cleans mildew off windows etc. Might be worth a try.

    You need to kill the spores. Clive oil should do it. An acidic condition will also inhibit growth, but not great for your elastics. Maybe a sprinkle of citric acid in the bottom of your nappy bin?

    Ok, so no more growth, but I can still smell dirt...so think there are still spores. Half of my boosters didn't survive though, they have just disintegrated =(
