Let’s see what our nappy experts have to share with us about our MCN topic:  How do I damage a modern cloth nappy?

Emma from Wrap ‘Em (closed) recommends:

Not washing frequently enough, soaking in bleaches/sanitisers, washing too hot, coating with creams, tumble drying on hot.

Kendall from Australian Baby Supplies recommends:

How you wash your nappies can affect them. Do not use bleach, napisan or fabric softeners. The way nappies are hung on the line can also damage the elastic. Place them flat or drape them over the line sideways to prevent pressure being put on the elastic and if you are using a nappy rash cream make sure you use a liner.

Melissa from Little Para Pants recommends:

Lots of ways. If you leave it in the wet bag/bucket too long, it can grow mould. Using vinegar in the wash will eat away the elastic and possibly delaminate PUL. If you use a Snappi on a non-Snappi-able nappy, you’ll get holes, runs, or leaks.

Charndra from Part Time Nappy Free recommends:

I have had then come out grey after something new went in the wash with them, turning EVERYTHING grey, sigh. The first time a new night nappy was used, hubby washed it, without turning it inside out – so, sigh, pilling, no more of that pristine beauty of a new nappy, just like that – BAM! What do I recommend? A tip one mum left on the blog here was to put a capful of disinfectant in with the pre-rinse. Good tip that I always do now.

Nyree from Kodomo recommends:

Using zinc & petroleum based nappy creams can affect the fibres of MCNs and reduce their absorbency. Be sure to use a liners (either flushable or microfleece if you must use a chemical-based nappy rash cream). Over use of the dryer on your nappies can deteriorate elastic and PUL, so keep dryer time to a minimum. Leaving wet nappies in a bucket for too long isn’t a good idea either, try to wash every second day if possible. Speaking of buckets, don’t soak your nappies in bleach, it can destroy the fabric of your nappies and this too will reduce their absorbency. Dry pailing is best!
