Just bought my first batch of bambino mio 2 piece nappies and they look great, mastered the folds and managed to put one on him earlier no probs.
But my question to you is about washing, do i need to buy the bambino mio hygeine detergant stuff that you put in the machine with the inserts? is it a must? or can i get away with just good old non bio?
You're fine with your normal detergent. Just use a little rather than a normal amount. I'd go for 1/4 dose to start with and reduce it if you can, or the detergent can clog up the nappy fibres and make them less absorbent.
No softener unless you use Bold 2in1. Don't tumble the outers but if you want to soften the inserts put them in the dryer after they've been washed for maybe 10-20 minutes. That'll soften them up and then they'll come out warm so will also air dry quicker. I've tried the other way round, tumbling them when they're nearly dry, but it doesn't work as well because the fabric has already goen crispy by then. If you have hard water they might go particularly crispy; water softener should help.
