I've just got some tots bots but hey are soooo stiff!

Whats the best way to soften them up and keep them soft?

Also I'm planning on dying the 8-10 white nappies I have pink,

the rest are rainbow bots but are ALOT more faded than I expected, do you think I could dye them pink too, they are green, yellow and orange but very faded!

A couple of washes with soapnuts softens them up a lot. Washing in white vinegar as a softener helps too.

<whispers> tumble drying makes em very soft.

Yup - go for it with the dyeing. If you go for a bright pink rather than a baby pink it will cover the rainbows better. You will need a few packs of machine dye to get the lot done though - you can do about 8 nappies per machine pack.
