Hi all, I have started using re-useable nappies for my 3 month old. We are using the pocket type nappies where you re-use the wrap and there are pads that fit inside with plastic poppers. The instructions say you need to wash the soiled nappies at 60c but the wet ones can be washed at 40c. So my question is this, is there another way of cleaning the soiled nappies without a 60 wash? Everything I have apart from bedding is washed on 40. The shortest 60 wash on my machine is 2 3/4 hours 🙄 and to get even half a load of nappies to wash at 60 would take about a month!
Would it be OK to use anti bacterial washing liquid? Or maybe boil the nappies first on the hob (like my mum used to years ago) then wash them at 40?
I really don’t want to waste a 60 wash on 6 nappy pads every few days when my reasoning behind re-usables is environmental.
Any ideas welcome. Thanks
