    Default Mould on mcn's :(

    I just went to put our mcns through the wash & found mould on a number of the inserts.

    The shells have been in the same pail as the now mouldy inserts, so im wary about using any part of the nappies.

    Do we now need to throw the whole lot out or is there any way to salvage them?

    Strip wash and then dry in sunshine. That happened to us too. The stain of mould might remain but they are fine to use.

    A good soak in Milton and nappy san prior to washing won't hurt either.

    Oil of clove kills mould. Then sun forever to get the stain out.
