View Full Version : How do you wash your Bummis bags?

04-27-2003, 04:56 PM
I have a couple of Bummis bags and wash them each time I wash the diapers, and they seem to be retaining the smell of the dirty diapers (and it is not a pleasant one).

I've been handwashing them in warm water with a little bit of Cheer Free and hanging them dry, since the instructions are to machine or hand wash warm and (I think) hang dry.

Any thoughts??

I do two wash cycles with my diapers, one cold wash and then one hot. I wash the bag with the diapers in the cold cycle and then take it out before I start the hot wash. I hang dry. It doesn't seem to smell, but to be honest, I've never stuck my nose down there!! :)

I wash as Beth does, only leave the bag in there for both cycles. During the cold wash, I use Tide and Biz. During the hot, I add some vinegar.

Actually I just throw them in with the diapers (hot/cold/cold) and hang dry.
