Which liners do you use? I tend to use the fleece liners but not all the poo comes off when I give them a flush. I'd like to use the flushable ones more often but they seem to scrunch up in L's nappy. Is they're a knack for putting them in?

I always had the same problem with the flushable ones, watching this thread with interest! Do you wet pail, as I would imagine some of the excess poo would naturally come off in soaking?

We always use fleece..sticky poo comes out in wash.

I don't bother with liners at all!

Always used fleece, any poo that doesn't flick off comes out in the wash. Don't need to wet pail either, dry pailing is fine.

Is it ok to just chuck the pooey fleece in the wash or do you have to flick/get it in water when the toilet is flushed? My washing machine has a baby cycle that will prewash, do the main wash and has several rinse cycles - would that be sufficient for any pooey fleece liners?
Sorry for all the questions and thank you all for your answers x

Fine to put in the washing machine. Your baby cycle sounds fab, I used to do a rinse, wash, extra rinse.

I stopped using paper as M's bum looked red and I heard they could cause nappy rash. Now I use fleece. I am a skank and if they need rinsing I do it in the sink (but I wipe it down afterwards) but 9 times out of 10 they go straight in the wash. I don't have a pre wash cycle so run a cold, quick wash, then 60 wash with detergent thn another cold quick wash to rinse.

I usually shower the poo off, lovely stuff :-)
I'd pick fleece over paper as it acts as a stay dry layer and helps stop babies bum getting wet. Nappy companies all recommend a liner x

We use fleece. Mainly for the stay dry properties as A gets very annoyed if his bum is wet!!
A only poos once a week and it is pretty impressive (he's BF too so not solid enough to 'flick' off). We generally put them straight in the wash then do a rinse, then wash, and hopefully dry them outside. I might be a bit skanky though, as if he poos at my mums she rinses the liner and nappy in the toilet, then in the sink, before washing.

I use paper liners and any that gets on the nappy I scrape off with an old RAC card into the toilet, then swill the nappy out in the sink. (Obviously clean and anti-bac spray it after.) The thought of poo floating around my washing machine makes me feel sick for some reason and I wouldn't be able to bear the smell of a nappy bin full of pee! The liners do catch the majority of it and when the poos harden up it makes it really easy to dispose of. I just do a 60 degree wash as they've already been rinsed. Ideally I'd have a bidet as that would be perfect for rinsing nappies out in. LOL.

Thanks all, the info you've given me has been really useful. I think I might invest in a few more fleece liners then [:-)]
