    I agree. No one does. But I find it handy to have just in case my modern nappies don't dry or he gets the runs.

I wash every second day during the week and on Saturday I do a strip of all of them. We get the smell all year round but he has always had acidic wee.
    I can dry pail for 2 days but lid off.
    In winter I use the dryer with 2 dry towels to dry them but leave then in a window on the clothes horse to get the sun (if there is any).
    I am so jealous of you all with the better brand and cool prints. The place I get mine always had the same ones. Even 2 years later.
    Do you use liners? Reusable or flushable? I use chucks wipes and wash them with the nappies. Get 5 or more uses out of them.
    I found we were getting the horrid acidic smell staying on the nappies but now we rinse them straight after wearing (poos and wees) then wring them out and put them in the wet bag. I do a wash every couple of days using Biozet attack rapid liquid on 60 and that has worked beautifully for removing the smell.
    We use the Woolworths own brand disposable liners and just chuck them at each change. Works out pretty cheap for a box of 100 and they work really well (better than some of the more expensive flushable ones).

    Does anyone flush the so-called flushable bamboo liners? I'm a bit hesitant as there were some news stories a while ago about adults flushing "flushable wipes" and them not breaking down in the sewers and causing a big environmental headache...

    The Pea Pod bamboo ones I've bought do look like they'd come apart fairly quickly but I'm just wondering if I'll have a plumbing nightmare down the track...

    I put them on a rinse before washing also. But I find the extra hot wash with nothing else once a week keeps them from holding the smell during the week.

    No I mean as soon as I change DDs nappy I rinse them in the sink in cold water before I put them in the wet bag.

    I tried them but they hold moisture and gave DD terrible nappy rash.
