  1. Hi,

    Just wondering if you could help me out. I bought a set of cloth nappies from Apikali about 3 & 1/2 years ago now for our first child. They were mostly baby bare brand. I am now just about to have our 2nd child, and am wondering if our old cloth nappies will still be alright to use? I am thinking again of hiring a newborn pack, but after this I am just not yet sure.

    Thanks so much,

    • Hi Katrina
      Im so glad the Baby Bares worked wonders for your first darling. As to if they will work wonderfully for number 2 darling will depend upon a few things. I would suggest checking the elastics, are they still soft and stretchy? If so, grab those nappies and give them a nice warm wash with some good washing powder. If they come out okay from that wash, they should be ready to go. After this wash you will know if your nappies have survived the storage period.

      Of course check for any loose snaps, holes in fabric or mould. If there is mould, it can be very hard to get rid off after a few years in storage.

      The longest I stored nappies was 2.5 years between Dan and Nate. I lost a few due to elastics. I could replace some, but a few nappies became rags.

      Another option is if the elastics are quite loose, and cannot replace them, they may make good night nappies as bub gets older as you can stuff them easier.

      Have a look at your stash and let me know how you go.

  2. Hi Ten,
    I have Gro Via prefolds and have been using them for 3 months now. I love them but when hanging out the last load I noticed what I think is some black mould spots on 1 of them in the middle section. I’ve had to chuck out a few washable breast pads and 1 Gro Via wipe when I saw the same spots on them too.
    Is there any way to get these mould spots out so I can safely use again please or do I need to chuck it out?
    Also, do you think I am doing something wrong in my washing process that this has happened?
