Haven't started using them yet (due in 12 days...), but lovely bamboo nappies are pre-washed and ready for use. We live in a really really hard water area (south coast), so I'm wondering if I should add anything (vinegar? Who knows?) to the final rinse to stop the nappies going stiff due to hard water. Or will it not be a problem?
I used a tiny amount of bio detergent (40ml??) and soap nuts because my dds all had smelly amonia wee. It is the soap nuts that make them soft because they stay in for the duration of the rinse cycles too.
Cargirl - Another question, these soap nuts. I was thinking they were the balls with spikes that you put in the dryer, but a washing machine version, but when I put 'soap nuts' into google it's talking about a natural soap coming out of real nut shells that you put in the wash - is this correct? Don't want to get the wrong thing!
