    Default how do you get rid of breastmilk poo on mcn?

    ok possibly a really dumb question but what do you do with breastmilk poo on mcn's? atm im rinsing it off under hot water in the laundry sink which i feel weird about? its impossible to get it off to put in the toilet. So what am i supposed to do besides liners which i hate? ds does explosions so there is lots of it typical breakmilk explosion consistency, without going into TMI!

    I rinse them by hand in a bucket of water, then tip that water into the toilet

    NOTHING!
    I just chuck them in the wet bag, then chuck the lot into the washing machine, cold rinse, followed by hot wash, and yes (unless they're washed immediately) the poopey nappies come out still stained but I put them on the line and the SUN gets rid of the stain!

    I didn't believe it until I saw it happen for myself. Bright yellow breast-fed poo stains gone by the time the nappy is dry. And my washing line isn't even in direct sunlight.

    I used to just chuck them in the wet bucket and put all the wet/soiled nappies in the machine on a rinse at the end of the day and wash when there was enough for a full load they were stained when they came out but the sun got rid of them so by the time they were dry they were bright white again

    I rinse them in the bucket just so the majority of fecal matter is going down the toilet rather than in the machine/sink.

    I scrape any excess off into the toilet (using a couple of pieces of toilet paper) soak until a load's ready to go into the washing machine, and then make sure it gets plenty of sun to get rid of stains.

    I used a little squirt to rinse it into the toilet, then just dry pail until washtime.

    Debsch is right, sun is amazing for getting those stains out.

    I just chucked in the pail. Put the load through a rinse cycle first. Then unsnapped then through a normal cold wash. Don't use hot rinse and then leas it can make stains worse.
