    What about clothes with poo stains? I dont use cloth nappies but we do have clothes that are victim to explosive poo.

    I thought 90C was why my white clothes turned grey, is it okay to wash them in that hot a temp?

    Isn't using a lower temp water more to do with not harming delicate fabrics or fading colours?

    The hotter the water, the more germs, would be killed. 90 degrees after all is practically boiling your clothes.
    The recommended washing temp on my sons cloth nappies is 60, so I guess that is adequate.

    I wash whites in 60, sheets at 70, colours in cold.
    All my baby's clothes I wash at 60, seems to work ok.

    I don't think washing your whites in 90 degree water would turn them grey. I would have thought the opposite.

    Napisan

    On the usage of Napisan, when you use it in your laundry (e.g for dirtier loads or to sanitize baby's new clothes), would you use just the napisan by itself in the washing machine or together with the baby laundry detergent? Or is it preferable to use Napisan to soak the clothes first and then wash in the machine using baby laundry detergent? Thanks for your advice.

    So baby's clothing to be laundered at 90C? 60C?

    And should we fully dry it in the dryer?

    We have a 2-in-1 washer/dryer, so I am currently washing baby's clothes at 90C with Vigor and Napisan. Then fully drying the clothes in the dryer. And then ironing all the clothes.

    And yes this means that I do laundry in the middle of the night sometimes.

    Overkill, right? **blush**

    iron baby's clothes? are you nuts? unless they are special, "going out" clothes, forget it!!! they only wear them a few times before they spit oup on them anyway!

    in the past 2 years (with 2 kids), we've only ironed 2 shirts for my son....that's it!

    take the time you need and relax!!!!!!!!

    we've been hanging up my girl's clothesto dry since it got nice out
